My children's school system has opted not to officially observe the day of mourning with respect to parents who have chosen not to tell their children about Sandy Hook. I will be doing a moment of silence and will ask my kids to take a moment of silence while they are at school.

I normaly don't share events like this with my children, however a few days ago we sat down for dinner and my boys were acting up while saying Grace. I got very upset with them and said "You will say Grace the proper way without any sarcasm and you will say a speacial prayer for all those who died in the school last Friday". My kids got quiet and I explained to them what happened and that there are boys and girls the same age as them who will not have Christmas or a Birthday ever again...

My kids got quiet and I explained to them what happened and that there are boys and girls the same age as them who will not have Christmas or a Birthday ever again because a crazy man took their life and made them get their wings and fly to heaven. I know it was a little harsh but I felt that they needed to know how lucky they are and appreciate the fact they have life and should respect it and say their prayers.

As an angel parent of 2 beautiful little girls, I believe we need a national day of mourning every year, in memory of my Shianna & my Shayla.

This day, as in the case of all of the recent shootings where a child is lost should not go unnoticed or unremembered.

I am heart broken for all the little ones and the teachers who stood in they way to protect them. God be with the families. Comfort then as you are holding their little ones now. Father we are angry at the one who did this, but your word tells us to forgive those who hurt us and Father I ask for forgiveness in the hearts of everyone involved so they don't carry this around to eat at their souls. Help us to morn as a nation. In Jesus name I pray.

My daughter lived near these children before they moved to the East Coast! This has been difficult for her and for all of us that have felt the pain of this terrible tragedy! Prayers with all!

I pray this never happens again in our country or any other country. Please please put prayer back in our schools. It should never have been removed! I am taking this pledge!

I totally agree with this statement. Prayer is a vital part of our lives and I hope and pray that this will come back so that people will learn and know that their Heavenly Father is there for them too!

Amazing, we take God out of the school, but the same individuals that support takung him out of the school, cia our Pledge of Allegiance -- have no problem making, slending & complaining about American Money. That clearly states .." IN GOD WE TRUST" !! HYPOCRITES!!
