World change is a topic on everyones mind, and in the hearts of many people at this time. We all pray and hope to make a change so that the world we live be with more positive actions. I say that we all need to stay in prayer today, and everyday, and I take this pledge! We need to continue to lift the families, and community to our heavenly father. I have signed the petition.

I know what it is like to lose a child. Children are pure and so innocent. How someone could look at the face of a precious baby and murder them will always be an unanswered question. I too know how that feels to lose a child to some sick individual who has no remorse and how powerless these families feel. Knowing that your own child is dead and there is absoulty nothing you can do about it is a feeling I wish on no one. If you have never had a child and have lost them you would never...

I know what it is like to lose a child. Children are pure and so innocent. How someone could look at the face of a precious baby and murder them will always be an unanswered question. I too know how that feels to lose a child to some sick individual who has no remorse and how powerless these families feel. Knowing that your own child is dead and there is absoulty nothing you can do about it is a feeling I wish on no one. If you have never had a child and have lost them you would never imagine what it feels like. I do, the day my son I found dead and tried to save and could do nothing about it was the worse day of my life. So when people say, how bad a day they had and think in my head that there are no bad days for me because I already experienced the worse day of my life and that was the day my son was killed. The perfect way I can describe a child dying and mothers who have lost a child I am sure will agree is you actually feel your soul leave your body. The day my son died I died too! Situations like this never go away. You never forget. And you will carry that hole in your heart until the day you die. As a parent and especially to these mothers of these murdered children you will never be the same. With time you will pretend to function and put one foot in front of the other, but that pain and hole will remain forever with no way to fill it. R.I.P. to all the innocent children who were killed and to baby Evin James a.k.a. sweet pea there is not one day that goes by that I don't think of you! Mommy Loves you and now you have friends to play with in heaven. I would trade my life to just touch and hold my baby again. GOD WHY? One day he will tell us. My prayers go out to these families and I wish I could say that one day it will get better but, the truth is it doesn't and it will never go away, but when you feel the sunshine down upon your face know that is our babies, and when you look into the night sky find the brightest star and know they can still see us and hear us. They are never gone but waiting for us because one day we will meet again. God be with all the families and victims that have lost their babies. Amen!

I am a prison guard and have seen many violent incidents stopped by guards with guns killing the perpetrators. It works. Our sophomore son attends a high school with armed guards. We like it.

I agree but this does NOT go far enough ever Teacher or Staff over 21 years old that has a Concealed weapons permit that has been trained! Should be able to do so in the school! That is what The Israel Teachers and Staff do right now! GUN FREE ZONES are a LIE! I am so sure a NUT is going to obey a Gun free Zone sign!

We're with you people of Newtown. Nothing can erase whats happened or brung back those lives lost but there should be armed guards or some type of heavy security in and around the perimeter of each and every school on the planet to prevent this tragedy from happening again.
