Today I sit here looking up news feeds to see if I can find out any more details about the Gunman who killed 20 kids ranging from 6 to 7 and 6 adults who must have been in his way.

I read one story of a Hero (Victoria Soto, 27) who put all her students in the cabinets and told the shooter they were in the gym and then he shot and killed her. She is a Hero she saved their lives. After reading her story I found all the names of the victims and there ages. I'm so thankful to have my little Isaac, who is 6, still with us here today. I can't get over how scared those kids would have been. I hope the children that saw what they did will be able to be okay and those that lost their loved ones will be assured with peace thru our Heavenly Father in some way that they will be blessed to see them again or to have peace with their loss.

Not only am I blessed to have Isaac here but the rest of my children. I love them SO MUCH!!

I found this poem & photo today about all the children and brought me peace.

twas' 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate.
their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
they were filled with such joy, they didn't know what to say.
they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
"where are we?" asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
"this is heaven." declared a small boy. "we're spending Christmas at God's house."
when what to their wondering eyes did appear,
but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
then He opened His arms and He called them by name.
and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring
those children all flew into the arms of their King
and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
one small girl turned and looked at Jesus' face.
and as if He could read all the questions she had
He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad."
then He looked down on earth, the world far below
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe
then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
"Let My power and presence re-enter this land!"
"may this country be delivered from the hands of fools"
"I'm taking back my nation. I'm taking back my schools!"
then He and the children stood up without a sound.
"come now my children, let me show you around."
excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
and i heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
"in the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT."
