These dear ones leave behind so many broken hearts.
"For he will deliver the poor one crying for help, also the afflicted one and whoever has no helper. He will feel sorry for the lowly one and the poor one, and the blood of the poor ones he will save. From oppression and from violence he will redeem their soul, AND THEIR BLOOD WILL BE PRECIOUS IN HIS EYES" (Psalm 72:12-14)
Now they are in the safest place, God's memory.
"You will call, and I myself shall answer you. For the work of your hands you will have a yearning" (Job 14:15)
We look forward to God's original purpose for the earth to be carried out.

I believe every parent in this world is feeling this horrfic pain over losing these little angels, teacher's, principal, a pure nightmare. I lost my son in a horrible death but by no means what these children, teachers, principal endured. I get mad at the guy that put all these parents through this, but yet were being told he had mental problems. I just don't know why he felt this is something he needed to do. What I do know is these lttle angels lost their lives and will not experience this Christmas with their families,graduating, marriage, having their own familes.
It's time for America Citizen's to come together and help rid these monster's. When you take a life, especially something like this, they deserve the death penalty. In this situation, he took his own, he probably knew he'd never make it out alive. This young man that did this had it all planned out. If he had a mental issue, why didn't his parent's step in to try and get him help. Why would anyone feel they would need these type of guns in their home. You raise your children the best they can be, sometimes it's not always as we would like for our children to be as adults. So to blame his parent's, we have no answer's as to what they were like or their relationship he had with his family.
As a citizen I would like to Thank all the Wonderful Teacher's, Police Officer's, Fire Department, Ambulance, Reporter's we Thank You from the Bottoms of Our Heart's. To the Priest, Preacher's everyone from the Churches, neighbor's everyone coming to support, save lives and May God Bless You and all the Families that have lost a Precious Angel. We are American's, Home of the FREE....This Christmas, the sky will be lit with the most BRIGHEST STARS, and these adults and children will be with you, and one day we will all be reunited with our loved ones again.
Our family to all of your's have cried so many tears for Newston, Conn. We love you all and our thought's and prayer's are with you, and we burn candles in memory of your loved ones. You all are never alone. We wish there was more we could do, for now prayer's and church. God will get us through it somehow. You will never get over the death of your child or how it happen, you take one day at a time, and remember your family would want you to go on.

If we can try to reserve valid discussion of the reasons for this immense tragedy on another 'site-page', and allow this place to be a forum for thoughts for the victims, their families, and loved ones.
In this space if we can send them our support, caring, offer to walk beside them as best we can through that which is unbearable.
Thank you.

In reality, Stephanie, you do not know whether the murderer was prescribed and/or taking psychiatric drugs. At this point, you are merely contributing to an aura of speculation and rumor that make the truth more difficult to ascertain.

I know that the on going investigation will discover that this man who committed these heinous crimes was under the influence of one or more psychiatric drugs as were almost each of the other murderers in each of the prior tragedies in this country and that the use of these drugs, with their black labels and horrendous side effects, are revealed to be the actual cause of the psychotic action of this individual and the others that preceded him. It is frightening to me that the psychiatrists, the ones that prescribe these drugs, are present in the area and will likely prescribe these exact same drugs to the families and friends of the victims. This is a vicious, evil circle that must be exposed, the dots connected and something done about it once and for all. We ask how someone can commit these acts. They were under the influence, likely for months or years of one but usually more than one combined psychiatric drug(s).
