This was not the topic I planned on writing about today. It is never an event you ever want to hear about. But here we are today, AGAIN, December 14, just eleven short days before Christmas, and we are left with the tragic and emotional turn of events at an Elementary School.
Twenty beautiful children, who probably went to school, happy it was Friday. Maybe their weekend plans consisted of Christmas Parties to go to, or planned on making Christmas Cookies with their mom. Maybe they were going to go with their father on picking out the perfect Tree and decorating it with their favorite Ornaments. But I am sure one thing they or their families could never imagine, was The Devil would come in and end those dreams for them.
Some heinous, evil, cowardly Bastard had a different plan for them, and I am so beyond disgusted. Words cannot describe how much I hate this man I don’t even know. But for now, I don’t want to write about him. Don’t want to memorialize his sad excuse for a life.
This post goes out to the children, ages five through ten, who were taken from their families and this Earth far to early. Just sitting in a classroom going about their innocent lives. Some may have loved music, art. Maybe were involved in a Dance Class or were great singers. Sure you will hear some had a favorite book or sport. A hero they looked up to. Or what they wanted to be when they grew up. And I am sitting here crying that their dreams, hopes, loves were taken from us not to be realized.
These are brothers, sisters, grandchildren, daughters, sons……and I cannot imagine what these families are going through. That so many families are going through. Another community has to grieve a multitude of losses that are so unfathomable. And here we are again. Sitting here watching the News because some maniac had it in his head to take target practice on innocent victims.
As a Country, I pray we can try to come up with a solution. Why does this happen? Gun control, family breakdowns, not enough being done for the Mentally Ill, video games, the rampant violence on the Internet, television and movies. I believe they all are a reason for the uptake in violence that seems to occur on a weekly basis.
But that is a talk for another time. And I hope this talk comes soon.
Right now, I just want to keep in mind these beautiful children, heroic teachers, policeman and first responders who are feeling this loss on such a deep and life-altering level.
And pray for them that we can come up with a solution so we never, ever have this happen again.
