lift them up in prayer

"As much as she's needed here and missed by her mother, brother and me, Ana beat us all to paradise. I 
love you, sweetie girl." - beautifully stated by Jimmy Greene, a grieving father

This is the most user friendly link I've found on the victims, letting us in on who each of these angels are. Please take the time to read about each and every one of them. Grab a tissue, you will cry.


"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those who are crushed in spirit." 
Psalm 34:18

* This is officially my last post for a few weeks.


  1. Such a sweet, simple post. This whole thing has been such an awful experience, even from afar. I can't help but cry every single time I see pictures or hear stories. My heart goes out to not only the families of the victims, but the first responders who had to see that horrific scene, and the children who survived who have that burned into their innocent minds. Just awful. I hope this opens up some real dialogue in our country about mental health and violence.

  2. It breaks my heart each time I read about them. I don't know how anyone can go and do something so horrible to such young children and the adults too.

  3. Love this post. Thank you for posting it and providing the link with the information about each victim. This is such a terrible tragedy and we need to take the time to remember each of the victims, and not the person who took them away from all of us.

  4. I am heartbroken. How could one not be? I will continue to lift the families up in prayer. Death is not an easy thing to deal with, especially the death of a child. We experienced something similar about a year back and I'll tell you, our country will never be the same.


  5. I am beyond saddened by this horrible tragedy. I rest only in the fact that all of these precious children remain in their heavenly Father's arms.


I love hearing from you and always try to respond to your comments!
