The Shooting In Newtown

December 14, 2012 12 Comments TAGS: Kids

I will not post any pictures, videos, clips, or names from the biggest tragedy and devastation this world has seen in decades. My heart bleeds for the families of the victims of this elementary school shooting, and I am crying as I hold my children extra tight right now.

I want only to quote Michael Moore, and then I’ll be done.

“The way to honor these dead children is to demand strict gun control, free mental health care, and an end to violence as public policy.”Michael Moore

Amen. Amen.

When are we going to do something about gun control?  When are we going to do something about healthcare? We need to address mental health – prevention and treatment, otherwise we will never be able to prevent these horrific acts.

      Well said. It’s time to hug our families and work to prevent further violent, senseless deaths.

      “20 kids. Yes, people kill people, but on December 14, 2012, a semi-automatic weapon killed 20 kids who did nothing to anyone because someone could carry out this act. Bob Costas was right, this gun culture has to end. So terribly sad. How many broken families…..who will never recover.”
