The Names

The list, via the New York Times:

names.jpg

There were heroes to remember among the victims.

Also, our media? They're disgraceful, shameful, awful human beings. The word 'jackals' comes to mind.

Finally, where there are no words, there's always music. I've always loved this song.

Again, if you've got kids, give them an extra hug or two tonight morons.

May God hold each in His mighty hand and comfort them. May He give peace to the familes. And may He give charge over the slain children to the stout-hearted Vicky Soto, whose bravery saved so many.

And may the perpetrator be forgotten on Earth, and thrown into the hottest corner of Hell for this demonic act.

9 A legal analyst on CNN actually said there were no gun laws outside of total ban that could have prevented this. I'm sure he'll never be invited back. No place for logic and reason in the MFM.


Yesterday Wolf asked everyone one of his guest what could be done and you could almost here him aching for someone to say "tighter gun laws". None, surprisingly, obliged his fetish.


This morning Soledad interviewed a representative from CA and ended the segment by saying "guns did this". She thinks guns are icky and there is no good reason for you to own one.

And tonight a reporter and Wolf nearly had testicular hernias wondering why Ms Lanza owned the guns in the first place. See, you owe them a reason. Answers must be given because they are the enlightened ones and they are owed explanations.


Total ban....that's what they want and they're going to use this as a push to get it.

They'd filed a thousand stories

This day of horror for us all

18 Remember the Jonesboro massacre in '98? It had a much lower body count, but the striking thing was that the shooters were 11 and 13 years old.

The adult mortal victim that day was a teacher who saved a student from being shot, and not only was she the mother of a young child, she was also pregnant.

One of the great pains in life is that there is no such answer. The gift of wisdom is to do what you can and accept that it won't be perfect.

Actually they're sighing and clucking and thinking they can "fix it," which is worse, because they can't ever be stopped from trying to "help," no matter how much they fail, because they *know* in their hearts they're doing the right thing.

It doesn't matter if it doesn't work, it doesn't matter if it does more harm than good, it doesn't matter if it ends in secessions or battles or civil war. It doesn't matter if it ends in crushed rights or pogroms or camps...

...because they *know* in their *hearts* they're *right*, no matter what happens.

It is a kind of madness.

God permits evil so that good may come of it.

In this way, each of the irrevocably heartbroken mothers has their hearts united with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. For she endured the death of her innocent son before her eyes, and he though innocent suffered for the salvation of mankind.

These things are, as they should be, a wake up call to our nation. We have turned our backs on God, and have abandoned His ways for the ways of evil. 20 kids were killed. 3000 more were aborted.

64 First thing I did last night was give my two little ones big hugs. I've avoided the news. I don't need to hear the depravity that happened there.

God Bless the Children.

“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven."

And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.

What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray? And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray. So it is not the will of my Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.

According to the news stories, the population is 27,000. I lived in the next town over (Brookfield) for several years as a child. My cousins lived in Newtown for quite a while when they were growing up. The whole area is very bucolic and beautiful and SAFE. There is just no way something like this could ever happen. And, yet, it did.

i'd like to comment on the vulture media situation. i had to run out this afternoon and head up church hill, the main st through the village of sandy hook, literally 30 plus satellite trucks 100s of cameras and generators/ light towers. i understand the need for info but everything you said friday was wrong, and interviewing children is fucked up. now we just got word the westboro morons are coming and the president will be here tomorrow. go the fuck home. enough with stopping people who are obviously distraught on the sidewalk.

86 My Mom and bio Father lost my brother when he was 4 years old. He was hit by a dump truck. Ran out in the street to meet up with the babsitter and me (I was 1 year old at the time) at the park. Mom got that call at work. She was always sad, it affected her. They had another child to try and replace him and then promptly divorced.

94 Maybe it's time we return daily prayer to our schools?

We used to be the most blessed nation the world had ever seen. Nationwide ever school began each day with the Our Father. We were given our daily bread, our tresspasses were forgiven, we forgave our enemies and rebuilt their nations after just wars, temptation was largely kept at bay, and we were delivered from great evil.

Now look at us. We murder our children in the womb, have utterly destroyed our own families, the disbelief of our enemies has overtaken us, we are in financial ruins, our cities are warzones, and the only thing we seem to find worth defending is homosex.

And now the Lord permits children to be slaughtered in classrooms the way they are slaughtered in hospitals and clinics.

Yes. Perhaps it is time we amend our ways. And perhaps the hour has come to return prayer to all of our schools.

105 The parents are definitely still in shock. Even if they are crying from time to time, it has not even begun to sink in. It's immistakeable when the blessed shock wears off. It's one of the miracles of the human mind and body. The shock lasts long enough to get through the funeral and first couple weeks or so. Then comes the hardpart, which is the rest of your life.

110 For those of you who feel Godhas abandoned us:

I went to mass this evening and our priest was just so sad about this horrible tragedy.

He reminded us that all of this suffering is because of sin entering the world. Sin is what causes all sorts of grief, including the mental illness sparked by revenge or hatred.

God has not abandoned us or the families who survive. The children are in heaven. They wil be waiting to hug their parents when they arrive.

The lesson from this, our priest said, is that no matter how angry we are with people in our family, we should remember how sad we would be if they were taken from us, and remember this and make peace with them.

We are given the gift of life and familial love. We should learn from this tragedy and cherish our children, our parents, and our siblings.

We are not promised a life without suffering. We are promised that Christ will be with us to comfort us and share in it.

God bless you all.

Many feel the absolute hollowness and dread that we, here, are feeling.

We do not know if it is friends, family and so forth who are leaving those gifts of thought and prayer. Does it matter? It is an act of kindness and a collective caring.

We also do not know how many who left prayers and thoughts also have helped the families, or donated...

I wouldn't be so harsh to judge those with acts of kindness.

None of us know what to do, or say. Like someone said upthread, we feel helpless. I certainly do.

Yes, I was sort of surprised how long the shock lasted and how generally functional I was to start with (and that was with the loss of a spouse, not a child which I firmly believe would be much worse) When that wears off the change can be very shocking.

Several people are from that area, is there a compassionate friends group there? My in-laws said it probably saved their marriage with the death of their first son, and he wasn't even a child, and apparently it's very helpful in learning how to adjust to the new "normal" without that child who was part of your life.

125 It's going around Facebook that Morgan Freeman had this to say about the murders. If he did, I tip my hat to him and will reconsider what I've thought of him lately;


"You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here's why.

It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single *victim* of Columbine? Disturbed
people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

CNN's article says that if the body count "holds up", this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. You can help by turning off the news."

Elementary school. Most, if not all, teachers tend to be females. The school systems probably also try to put the male teachers into the upper levels so that they can serve as coaches and help with the unruly ones when they get bigger and older.
When I was in middle school, the city started putting police officers in the schools, sadly, I think police officers will start being in Elementary schools from now on.

136 This may be too metaphysical for some, but here goes:

History is a progression from barbarity to the ideas enshrined in the US Constitution. We have gone from paganism, and false religions to the premier country in the world that released more scientific truth than all the nations on the earth combined. Parallel to the U.S is the recreation of the state of Israel, the only other "covenant," nation on earth. Both are the most hated nations on earth...obviously.

However the spiritual battle (this means real fallen angels and demons intent on destroying America and Israel) is set to destroy America and Israel. We have seen the slow degradation of the moral foundations of this country. Part of me grieves along with the parents now, but another part of me realizes this is Satanic plotting to bring America back to the normal status-quo in the earth of unending tyranny.

Because of our slow drift from God (not so slow lately) we are losing our divine protection in both little things and large. 911 was a wake up call that our protection as a nation is lifting. Stuff like this will only aid our demonic leaders to seek to strip away guns from the populace, they want this worse than a man imprisoned for ten years wants a night with a whore.

Honestly the only recourse is not political or martial, but men and women must begin to pray like their lives and the nation and the destiny of the world depends on this, and it does.

If America is taken down by these demonic men then freedom will disappear from the earth in less than 30 years.

Even fucking Hurricanes aid these bastards now, fast and furious was all about changing the gun laws, only Obama and Holder got caught in a way, but here the demonic world gives them a gift anyway. I believe this stuff is real and is happening now.

Stop wondering why God does this, or allowed it to happen. It is up to us, He will help us, but not if a football game, or work, or family or a video game is more important than crying out to Him for help. It can become to late, then nothing will stop this progression.

Just saying...there wouldn't have been 26 people dead if all teachers were required to have a concealed carry permit and had to carry and know how to use a gun.

146 I think if we’re going to control guns, we really have to do it massive. I think I’m all for getting rid of the assault weapons and machine guns and all that … but if we want to prevent something like this, we have to really think seriously about drastically reducing the number of guns in our society, and particularly — this is an old Patrick Daniel Moynihan idea — the number of bullets. It is very hard to control 300 million guns. The bullets are a little easier to control.”

A mentally ill, evil monster, who in a civilized world would be locked up in a mental ward and writing letters home in crayon, destroyed scores of precious, innocent lives before ending himself. Do I have it about right?

I quit watching about two hours after the event was reported.

What I have learned so far is that the perpetrator was a very brilliant but shy and withdrawn honor student 20 years old who was still in the 10th grade, and had a minimum of two 'disabilities' including autism and an undiagnosed mental health problem.

This needs more than the "48 hour rule".

151 My boyfriend called me in to watch a video clip from the local news station. Seems that there was a licensed carry at the Mall shooting in Oregon. He'd been a security guard at that same mall, now working another security gig. He heard the two shoots and saw the gunman trying to unjam his gun. He pulled out his own weapon and had the guy in his sites. He didn't shoot because he was afraid that he might accidentally hit someone trying to escape. Right after the shooter saw him, he committed suicide.

My neighbor had her teenage daughter murdered. We were home but didn't hear anything when her daughter went away with the guy. He took her down the road, raped her and murdered her with a knife. My neighbor chose not to seek the death penalty and the guy is still in jail. When the news crew set up shop in the driveway, next to our place, my husband went outside and started cussing them out. They had to film elsewhere. If more people did that, it would put the press in their place.

I have read a lot of books, I also look beyond surface analysis. Either humanity has a destiny toward physical freedom, in order to facilitate spiritual freedom, or it is all futility.

No way to actually prove either one, but that is why faith is greater than reason. I choose to believe in a coherent universe with meaning. Everyone is also free to chose the universe they believe. I for one refuse to be a victim. Either I was given authority to change this earth or I can be a gigantic spiritual liberal always a victim of evil.

Essentially the message of Christ (when you scrape of the religious nonsense men wrap it up in) is you are responsible, you create your world. Or you can sit around whining and crying about the shit and become an eternal Rush Limbaugh, just complaining about what liberals are doing.

Want God out of public life, conversation, out of schools? Then don't blame God when horrible things like this happen. I have personally reached out to very troubled people in my life...who knows but maybe my faith stopped something from happening.

Reminds me one day years ago a bunch of us were in all nights of prayer during the Reagan years, praying for the end of the Soviet Union. And some hippie chick came in a watched us for a while then started mocking us and telling us how prayer was worthless.

The leader of our group asked her if the men in the Soviet Union were crazy or insane? She replied that probably some of them were. Then he pointed out, then maybe what prayer HAS DONE was kept their hands from the button. He further told her to leave and not let the church door hit her in the ass on the way out.

I'm starting to believe that myself.

I've never been religious during my adult life. I went to a Presbyterian Sunday School when I was a kid, and those lessons took.

I generally believe in the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule.

I'm honest, and I never seek to take advantage of others. I "live my life on the square" as a wise man once said. ( Dylan )

I'm increasingly horrified by the depravity of popular culture, and I realize that it will doom us if it's not arrested.

I also know that many Christian denominations, both Protestant and Catholic, have been infested with left-wing "social justice" nonsense.

So I'm not sure what to do. Like I said, I don't feel religious, yet I know that we can't go on like this.

That's because it has nothing to do with religion. Think about it; is spree killing by lunatic loners common throughout the 'heathen' world? Not really.

It's a result of small communities being broken down and absorbed into anonymous, urban sprawl. In small towns and villages where everyone knows everyone, nutters like this one were taken care of quietly and early.

Can we return to some idyll-like golden age of small towns and villages? Is some revival going to save our temporal and timeless selves?

Nope. Technology and time march on.
