    I just listened to a talk on cnn. Israel has a right to defend it self against missel attacks. Gaza has been jewish free for some time but instead of improving their lifes and land they chose to attack Israel.

    I don't like the fact that the halftime show did not cover halftime at all. It was about guns! His job was to cover the game and talk about stats, not gun safety.

    Please pray for the students, parents, and teachers of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. God please protect those children. Today we mourn for, once again, a troubled soul taking hatred and hurt out on innocent lives.

    So sad for the children and adults who died today at Sandy Hook Elementary school at the hands of a crazy man. Also sad to hear about the 30 plus children that were stabbed in China also by a crazy man....lets not talk about gun laws at this time....lets not talk about knife laws....lets pray for the souls of the lost and the parents and families that must face a future without their loved ones.

May those men both dead and alive experience the wrath of God and suffer eternally!

    What is going on in our country? What will our officials do?! What's the plan of action our mentally ill in this country?!!! Something has got to be done, there is an epidemic and our children are at risk. My heart and prayers go out to these innocent families. The publicity given to these sick people is sad but I only hope it causes awareness that something needs to be done. A lockdown is not the answer an evaluation needs to be done of these eerily similar cases.

    When the Majority of our Country Turns their back on God that allows Evil (Satan,The Devil) to destroy and devour as he pleases, even small children are at risk. A generation of Godly people are passing, and being replaced by a generation of Evil people with No Respect of Authority, Other People, or even something as Precious as a Child's Life. This IS the worst tragedy we have seen in the USA following 911 and possibly before. God is the answer to any individual's problems and the Problems of our Country. Turn your Back on God, He will Turn his Back on You.

      No, Christian – God NEVER gives up on us! We all turn our backs on him from time to time and He never leaves us.

    Maybe it would have not made any difference, but once again guns possession proved to be a people's right that should be at least regulated better. I never cried after reading the news before. Now I can't say it anymore.

    Instead of our government spending millions on fighting for anti gun laws....our government should be spending millions on mental health benefits. The common thread is unstable humans.

    How much more of this do we have to take, before PRAYER is allowed back in our schools. Our hearts go out to all the families of every child affected today. May God comfort all the families hearts and minds.

    I've not seen any reports on any wounded children. Were all the victims killed and no injuries?

    Has anybody checked out the facebook site for the shooter Adam Lanza he posted on facebook the following
    "Mom I just wanted to take away the things you loved most...the way you took away my relationship with my dad. You should have never taken him away from my brother and I...

    He also stated on his occupation that he is permenately unemployed 6 feet under.

    This is is just tragic that we have all the resources out there and could not prevent this. Isn't there a red flag somewhere that would pop up when things like this are done. I pray for the families that lost there beloved child way too early and for unnecessary reasons
