    I would like to take a ride to Newtown to help in someway if even just to be a shoulder to cry on I have 4 little girls and am brought to tears at any thought of this tragedy. My family and I would like to help anyone in anyway possible there. All of our love goes out to those babies and their families.

    may god bless you all. We had a girl that died about four years ago in our neighborhood she was nine years old it changed her families life. she was a smart girl and died by the hands of two gunmen. until this day everdy time i walk by the crime scene where she lived i shake my head. Years ago where i went to high school and elementary school there were gun fights every day. to walk to school it was were we going to live today. we had constant school lock downs and the only thing i could think of is we need to get out of there. lock down can sometimes put them in more danger. they need to come up with better ways to get them out of there. inside shootiing are different than outside shootings. it is heart breaking but it is good to know that finally politicians are thinking about doing something. For the kids that lost there lives may God bless there families.
