Thoughts and Prayers with Newtown, CT

Yesterday, tragedy struck at Sandy Hook Elementary. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.

The teachers, law enforcement officers and rescue workers are heroes. The stories being shared about the courageous acts of the teachers is nothing short of remarkable. A custodian ran through the halls warning teachers and students, a teacher ushered her students into a bathroom to hide them from the suspect, and Victoria Soto, lost her life shielding her students from the suspect.

This is not the time to discuss politics of gun laws. This individual carried out an intent that appears to be pre-meditated. Some news outlets are stating that the individual responsible was mentally ill or had some form of autism. The conversation that needs to occur is about changing the culture in this country and helping those that are mentally ill.

As a nation, we need to come together and make sure those families affected by this tragedy in Sandy Hook know that they are not alone. Many individuals have started funds to help those affected.  May God Bless the victims, and may he comfort those who are affected.
