We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Yes! My prayers will include those who died and were injured and their families, those who saw their friends die, those who are related to the Lanzas, Adam Lanza and all those with autism, asperger's, or personality disorders.
It's a very sad day for all, but I can't begin to know how heart wrenching it is for the families of the victims. God, please hold them close.
It is hard to understand the evil that would do such a thing. My family lives a mile from the school and I have a nephew who attends there. My nephew got out unharmed, but who knows how this will affect him and his older brother - not to mention his parents. Helicopters overhead almost 24 hours a day and the familiar neighborhood landmarks splashed across the local, state and national news.
I am trying to understand how we can overcome such evil and realize it is only through goodness - how we live our lives in response to God. The darkness cannot overcome the light.
