Dear Heavenly Father,
"Please Bless and Keep the children of Newtown close to your heart and please do the same for the heroes that gave their lives trying to protect their students."
As a retired teacher, parent and grandparent, my heart will forever feel pain for the tragic loss of the twenty-six souls that sorrowful day in December 2012. I pray to you Heavenly Father, please, Bless all victims and their families (from past shootings also) and lead us to someone with the strength and courage to stand up against the tide and reform the gun laws, as well as, provide more help to those among us with mental illness. In Jesus name, Amen.
