Their faces and their names

It is still so hard to think of anything but the lost ones in the shooting tragedy.  These are faces of children that are first graders and they are 6 years old.  So innocent, sweet, trusting and full of live.  They adore their teachers and their teachers adore them.  These are my precious grandchildren.  Out of my 6 grandkids three are 6 and in the first grade.  Now that the names and pictures are coming out of this tragedy, we need to remember them and honor them.  Teachers lost their lives protecting them.  No more words needed, I know you all feel the same why.  God Bless them all.

My grandson is five, I see his face in my thoughts picturing the little ones. We are continuing to pray for each family and for the other children in that school who will be affected the rest of their lives.

It is unbearable, endless heartbreak. How do we help these parents, in addition to our prayers and compassion?

It has me so depressed. I can't stop thinking of these precious children and their families. All we can do is keep them in our prayers and continue to pray this insanity stops.

Your grandchildren are so sweet. It is hard not to dwell on what happened. I am trying not to read too much about it; it's just too sad.

Your grandchildren have the sweetest faces!! I tried to link you to a article I read over the week-end that pretty much sums it up! I wasn't successful! :( but if you like you can read it at huffingtonpost.com and the title is'I Am Adam Lanza's Mother': A Mom's Perspective On The Mental Illness Conversation In America. It pretty much sums it up! so sad! hugs to you!

Don't you just want to hug your grandchildren close and keep them from harm's way? I can't even imagine what those poor, poor parents are going through.
