God Bless the children and teachers of Newtown, Connecticut.Posted Friday, December 14, 2012, at 5:18 PM
The tragedy in Newtown was a humbling reminder of how precious life is and how small and insignificant our personal problems are. Maybe today you yelled at your child, complained to your spouse about some minor detail, or cursed under your breath about having to go to work.
December 14th was just another typical day, but twenty innocent elementary school children and six caring adults were suddenly taken from this earth. The heartbreak and horrific loss their families are now enduring will last a lifetime.
But tonight you get to tuck your child in bed and kiss your spouse goodnight, and when you see your friends at work tomorrow, you'll feel a little different.
No matter your faith, no matter who your higher power may be, we can all pray in our own way that our fellow citizens in Connecticut find a way to cope with their grief.
For those precious little children and their teachers who are now with the angels, I share this verse from Matthew 19:14:
"But Jesus said, "Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; For the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

Background: Father of two adult children and grandpa to five. Ideologically, I'm a fiscal conservative and a news junkie who enjoys writing. I believe the 1st Amendment is critical to America's survival. We're free to express our opinions and have the freedom to assemble as citizens, whether it's "Occupy" or "Tea Party" gatherings. Freedom of the press is our government watchdog, and freedom of religion binds us together in a civil, God-fearing society. Oh, by the way, I'm proud of my PHD (public high school diploma) and my Masters in CSI. (Common Sense Intellect).
