Tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary

As we all know that Friday, December 14, was one of the saddest day here in America because of the tragedy or atrocity that happened in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. My heart breaks hearing the news of 20 little kids, ages 6 and 7, and 6 school staffs were slain by a really senseless act. I cannot grasp the idea of why there are people that can do such a thing. As the news and events unfold, you hear different stories of heroism and courage on the school staffs and children that survived that can really make your heart swell with emotion.

I am a mother of a Kindergartner, age 5, and I look at her every day and just get emotional thinking of those innocent lives that are now gone. They have full life ahead of them but were cut short. I know they are now in the Lord's haven and they will be free of any pain. I just pray that their families they left behind will find comfort knowing that they're angels and is now in a safe place.

As a mother, I also have questions every time I dropped off my kid in school if she is safe. I am not showing it to our daughter though. It is just something we can't help to feel because as they go in the outside world with their first step, we know that they will be facing different things. It is part of their life while growing up.

Now we ask,  is there a way to prevent such incident to happen again? There is really no guarantee. We should all act together and find a solution to this. As what the President had said, we can all do better and stop this from becoming a routine. The legislators should look into measures not just enforcing gun control that is appropriate for this generation and also look into the mental health issues of this country. Politics should be set aside to come up with a better solution for the good of the people. It is my fervent prayer as a mother that our kids will be safe wherever they will go.
