Wow, so so sad but what impressed me the most is when one of the Dad's of the murdered children spoke and mentioned that he's heart goes out to the family of the shooter also. Wow, talk about real Christian love. How many of us would be able to do the same? Rather we would curse even 5 of their generations. Really Christianity is loving even those who are hard to love. I really learnt something vital from that man today and he's only 30yrs old.

What could have been the motive behind this massacre? This is totally unacceptable and calls for a review on the possession of fire arms by citizens of the US.Something needs to be done very fast before another ugly bastard pulls the trigger on innocent souls. May the souls of the departed rest in peace.Amen

This has become a regular occurrence in the American society. It's tragic on all levels.

On the other hand however, I'm glad these children never have to suffer through the disappointments and sadness life brings. They have grown their angel wings.

Rest in Peace little ones. May your angels comfort your families.

Linda, I'm glad you waited until there were concrete facts to post about this event. Some people rushed to publish the news and ended up reporting rubbish. Thank you.

this is unfathomable and a very sad day in america... and as typical of white people, when their people do EVIL they term it as mental illness. If this boy wasnt a devil reincarnate, i dont know who is. if any other race did this it will be gangstars or terrorists or mafia.

God really wants beautiful Angels this period around Him because I don't understand why so many death of Children. I pray God to visit the parents and comfort them,encourage them. May God cause His face to shine on the teachers who also left this world in the cause of mentally uplifting this kids. May He Bless Immensely those that protected the other kids from harm. It could have happened to anyone,I'm a teacher also... Pls let's all take this thing serious,Embrace God tight now because the day,hour and how,we do not know. Try to desist from sin. Its a second between life and death.
Linda I think its time u include the Gospel on your Blog. I understand that u fear suffering persecution because humans rather hear of gossip,sex,party and all that than hear the word of God outside Church but u have made ur mark already,u aren't going to loose readers if u atleast try. So pls. Thousands of people read your blog,u wouldn't know whose soul you have touched. Just help. Thanks and God Bless you all. Happy Sunday.

I have noticed that if the killer is white, his released picture will always make him look dumb and psycho. Smh...may all the souls involved in this grave incident, rest in peace.

I have been in tears all morning. I ask myself why? How?. You have a child with issuses so much so that u retire to care for him n yet u collect guns...any sense in that? Each child had between 3-11 bullets..omg.. I can not understand it. I am numb wiv pain. Please all those saying illunminati n all, let it rest..what has this got to do wiv illuminati? Or the jos crisis..when it happens in our country we feel sad..doesnt stop us from feeling sad when its the US coz we are human. God the pretty kids wiv their whole life ahead of them all cut short..may their souls rest in peace. And to the teachersz..heros who lost their lives to save their pupilsz, the future of their country. Rest in the bosom of the lord. Jonathan shud take a cue from obama. He said nothing over the Aluu4 n Mubi killings. Stupid shoeless ass.

How do you pull a gun on 6 and 7 year olds and shoot
them several times and want to get away with the tag
of 'psychologically insane'? That's BS, these white folks
are crazy people, the whole lot of them! They are bored
cos almost everything is handed them on a platter, if to
say them dey chop hand to mouth like Nigerians, wetin go
concern them with shooting. If you wanna get famous in
America, do something nasty! As Kim K and Paris Hilton.
The idiot is not termed a menace or a terrorist but a loner
and shy person! F**k that sh*t the idiot wanted to write
his name in the American folklore. He probably got tired of
playing PS3 and xbox and decided to go Rambo on
innocent kids and their teacher! If he wanted to commit
suicide, there billions of sky rise apartments in America or
he coulda jumped out of plane or off a bridge. How many
blacks and arabs have attacked school children before?
Adam Lanza is nothing but a bloody murderer who knew
exactly what he was doing, na only am first suffer
asperger syndrome? Him papa!!!! He is not psycho, just
another bored dumbass American

Thank God for such beautiful minds!
Twas' 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate.
their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
they were filled with such joy, they didn't know what to say.
they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
"where are we?" asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
"this is heaven." declared a small boy. "we're spending Christmas at God's house."
when what to their wondering eyes did appear,
but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
then He opened His arms and He called them by name.
and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring
those children all flew into the arms of their King
and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
one small girl turned and looked at Jesus' face.
and as if He could read all the questions she had
He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad."
then He looked down on earth, the world far below
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe
then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
"Let My power and presence re-enter this land!"
"may this country be delivered from the hands of fools"
"I'm taking back my nation. I'm taking back my schools!"
then He and the children stood up without a sound.
"come now my children, let me show you around."
excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
and i heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
"in the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT."
