The winds of war.
The winds of war are blowing.
Both sides stand in the blood of the victims of the same tragedy.
Preparing their weapons for the battle to come.
The blood, not yet dried, swirls around their feet.
Yet the victims are forgotten already.
It is the battle now, that matters.
Lest we forget…
These are the victims of Sandy Hook:

May God rest their souls…
It's too late, the battle lines are drawn, the rhetoric on both sides has begun... Shame on us all.
No respect for the victims, no decorum, just girding for the battles.
We, as a country, used to be better than this. No more.
Both sides point fingers, spew invective.
I am ashamed.
It could be worse!

I've read the news stories, looked at some of the pictures online, the flag at work today flying at half mast, and I haven't been able to shake it from my mind. But somehow this list of names and birthdates has been the hardest to see. The kids were all 6 and 7 years old! One just had a birthday Tuesday - had she celebrated yet or was her family planning for this weekend? I've shed some tears all along but am sobbing now...
My thoughts are with the families in CN. I cannot imagine their heartbreak.

Eloquently stated sir. Like most people in America and around the world I suppose, these innocent babies and their teachers are constantly on my mind. I pray for them all, and will continue to do so. There is no explanation, justification, or excuse for this evil person and the heinous cowardly crimes he committed.
Evil doesn't cease to exist because we ignore it however. Evil must be met with force, appropriate to the situation. What I am not is ashamed. Would I do anything to have prevented this evil doer from his carrying out this massacre? You bet. Just like 9-11, all I know deep down in my soul, is I wish I could have been there. I'm ashamed of the people using this tragedy for their own purposes, but I expect as much. Haven't seen too much on the pro 2nd Amendment side making fools out of themselves, but I've purposely avoided the news today, so maybe I'm missing something.
I'm mad, and I'm resolved to contributing to a solution, to prevent this ever happening again, but I'm certainly not ashamed, and have no reason to be. Be safe.

I've prayed for these poor, sweet little children and their families. It's unimaginable pain.
You are wrong to think that people don't care, they do.

Re: The winds of war.
I didn't say they didn't care.. I said the victims are forgotten.
The battle for rights is more important. Or, perhaps more accurately, it seems that way.
It could be worse!

This is the time for all to come together and help those suffering to heal. The time will come when we have more facts to find resolution.

No, they aren't forgotten, not at all. It's not an either/or situation oakchas. (((hugs)))
