Remember the children

As a parent who has suffered the loss of a child, I truly cannot say I know what the parents of the Newtown children that lost their lives are going through.

How horrific to have your child ripped away from you by someone that only public opinion will probably give you a definition of.

Where does a child look for protection? It is not them who have created this world that we live in. How are we going to protect them now? What are we going to do to protect them?

Pretty big question when you think about it; what is going to keep our children safe when they are not with us, their guardians?

I can hear it now, everybody’s opinions on what they are going to do about it, with no avail. This time of despair for the people involved with the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy has opened everyones eyes, whether it be to the point of fighting back tears every time it is on the news, or just in passing conversation.

I feel that if you have an opinion, please voice it; it may be the only way to save our children now and in the future. This problem needs to be rectified so that parents and children can feel safe.

Take time to remember Jesus Christ, who died for all of us (Luke 22:19b), and take time to remember all of the precious little souls that will never be forgotten and will forever be in our hearts and in our Father’s house (John 14:1-4).

Only through faith we can all find some kind of peace.
