    May the deaths of the children and the educators not go in vain. May the leaders of Connecticut, D.C. and all the other states, work together as a group and not as Democrats, Republicans or Independents but as parents and concerned citizens to prevent this from happening again. My prayers to the survivors and families of the victims. Know that God is with you and will comfort you.

      May God bless all those innocent Angels who were murdered as Myters and are seated at the right hand of the father. God has a very special place in his heart for his children.Christ said no one may enter Heaven unless they are as innocent and pure as these children and those who receive my children will not only receive me but also the one who sent me.

    Fall to your knees and hear the Angel’s Voices Singing! I know God will give strength and peace to all the parents and families of our precious victims of this senseless act. They are ALL with God at this very moment…What a Beautiful place to be!

    Glory to God as these little angels and the school staff are in Heaven. Jesus said “Let the little children come to me.”
    I pray for the families and friends.

    God bless the families and the whole community. To be absent from the body means to be present with the Lord.

    May this tragedy bring to all of usthe realization that life is so precious, and should be given all of our respect.
    Our prayers should include a request for peace for all involved.
    The Bible says that the little ones shall sit at is feet. What a wonderful scene!

    We pray for each family. God, you are the God of all comfort; pour out Your comfort upon these families. God, heal the brokenhearted.

    This country is no better than any other. We kill our own people, we fail our own people, the heart of this country has failed and pushed God far away and we need to get right with God as a nation and welcome our creator back with loving arms and hearts wide open. God doesn’t need us-we need God. Jesus is the only way. He is the way, the truth, and the life. Time for a revival. My prayers are with you all. God bless.

  8. Peter Macias Friday, December 21, 2012 / 4:31 pm

    Praying for their strength, understanding, peace, and comfort. Cry out to Jesus.

    Now is the time for the PEOPLE to do the hard work to keep this from happening again.

    And i heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the thorne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. God will bless all 27 of his angles and lift their family spirit and have peace.

    The only way to justify the untimely end of such young souls is to think that, long before they were ever here on earth, God told them, “I know you want to stay here in heaven with me. But I am sending you to earth for a SHORT TIME. You will return to me before you know it. The pain will melt and you will be back at MY FEET in heaven. So enjoy earth for a few years, then you will be back.” That is the only way I can justify in my heart what it means to lose a child. And the same for the adults who also lost their lives. What can you say? This life is so precious, we never know it’s end. We only know it begins with that first breath.

    My heart is broken. I pray that God holds your heart and holds you close to Him to bring you comfort and strength. God gives you the hope in seeing your babies again when we will meet Him in Heaven!

    GOD will wipe away every tear from their eyes, there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying…Nothing can ever separate us from GOD’S love,neither death nor life, neither angel’s nor demon’s neither our fears for today nor worries about tomorrow…These is GOD’S PROMISE.

    May God give the families of the victims the strength and peace they need during this time and all parents and leaders of this country to learn from this tragedy so we can prevent this from happening again.

  25. James Nail Friday, December 21, 2012 / 2:42 am

    I don’t believe they need silence. They need noise. They need this country to shout at the top of its lungs and demand our leaders to keep our children safe!

  26. willie i Friday, December 21, 2012 / 1:04 am

    May God give them peace. We pray for them and their family,
