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!!

This is why i send my children to a christian school, prayer never hurt anyone I dont understand why they took it out. sure it costs more to send them there,but its a small price to pay to be enriched with prayer daily and memory versus from the bible..

I so agree with every word you said. I worked in two Christian Schools for 20 years and I believe. My heart goes out to all the little ones and families.

God Bless America and all His Children! I am a teacher at a public school. I will be joining in the moment of silence on Friday, just as I did on Monday! I have been praying for the families of those taken Home to our Heavenly Father. In all the work I've done with Youth Groups at church for many, many years I have always told the youth that you CAN PRAY in school. No one can stop you from praying anytime, anywhere. It does not matter if you attend a public or private school, pray. ...

PRAYER IN SCHOOL....YES. Evil abounds all around our children. Dear Lord I pray that you awaken this nation from their sleep, What does it take for this nation to see that it is evil that destroys and kills our children, not prayer and Christian values. God please place your arms around each Mom, Dad and loved one of those slain in Newtown, Conn. May they receive peace knowing that those babies are at rest in their Father's arms.

Spirituality, love, kindness and understanding is needed but don't let fear waiver moral beliefs like separation of church and state. Pray for the loved ones of those lost.

Amen Karen! It doesn't matter where you are, private or public school. You can pray and talk with your heavenly father all the time. God hears your prayers no matter where you are! I pledge to remember those precious children, teachers, and families this Friday. I too like the idea of taking my 3 sons and doing something to help others on Friday also. May we stand and show evil that God will always conquer all! God bless those who are mourning!

TOO LATE!!! Read what Ravi Zacharias has to say:The storms that await us will sink this nation beyond recognition if we do not awaken to the rapid repudiation of the values that shaped this nation.

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.
