(VIDEO) DEADLY GUN VIOLENCE MUST END…TOO MANY TEDDY BEARS IS A SIGN OF THE TIMES

Unfortunately, the gun violence in Chicago has reached an all-time high.  Each day we lose young innocent teens on the streets, usually just at the wrong place at the wrong time.  The above video is a sign of the times across the country.  And with the recent shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, this message stretches beyond our city streets.

It’s sad that the new generation of youth cannot enjoy the simple times of yesterday.  Schools used to be the only safe-haven for those living in gang infested areas.  But to hear of such devastation, even in a tight-knit small community such as Newtown, crushes that hope.  Where can they feel safe?

The guns need to come out of the hands of irresponsible civilians. There is absolutely no need for them to have  semi-automatic assault rifles.  If guns continue to flow freely in the streets, how do we expect the senseless violence to end?

If you have the passion to hear what our youth is feeling…listen to the words in this heart-felt video.  It is called Too Many Teddy Bears which is a sad reality.  What a powerful message…the lyrics will chill your bones.

When a deadly shooting can happen at an elementary school in Newtown…it can happen anywhere.

12/16/12: SANDY HOOK CT SCHOOL SHOOTING; VICTIMS’ NAMES RELEASED TO PUBLIC TODAY…TRAGIC.

December 16, 2012

child photoTragic.  Is the only word to describe the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut this week.  The thought of innocent children being killed by a lone 20-year-old psychopath is unimaginable.  But now there is a name attached to each victim, which makes it even harder to bear.

Some would have preferred shooter, Adam Lanza, was still alive to give insight into why he would harm precious children and faculty…I’m glad he’s not.  There is nothing he could say to vindicate his actions, nor offer comfort to the families.  It is best to have this deranged killer off this earth.

The deadliest shooting in U.S. history will hold firm in the mind of all American’s and many around the world for an eternity.  This travesty has caused many parents to hug their children just a bit tighter.

In looking at my photo posted above, I was exactly 7-years-old at that time.  This too was a holiday and I remember feeling excited to experience the joy of the day.  These children must have also felt that excitement with the holidays upon us.  It is an age of innocence and trust, which has also been taken from the surviving children.  It’s hard to imagine a life being lost just has it has begun to live and learn.

Police authorities released the full list of names today along with age and gender.  There were 8 boys, 12 girls and 6 female adults who lost lives in this horrible massacre.  Police believe Adam also killed his mom, Nancy Lanza, who was found shot to death in her Newtown home Friday.

What a sad day for us all…to the friends, families, and survivor’s may they find comfort in each other and the support of the world. 

On another note; let’s hope this has no connection with the “end of the world”, which many believe will come on 12/21/12.  It is strange we first had storm Sandy…now Sandy is the name of the school.  Is this a sign?

(Video) 6-YEAR-OLD GUN FIRES AT CLASSMATES IN HOUSTON SCHOOL

Houston police reported that a 6-year-old brought a gun to school today, injuring several students.  The kindergartener’s gun hit his classmates and himself when it fell from his pocket and accidentally discharged, in a crowded lunchroom.

Although the students are all in good condition, it is still unbelievable that children this age have to go through this type of trauma, especially at school.  The police are investigating where the child got the gun and full details of the case, prior to determining if charges will be brought against the parents.

We have serious issues when a small child finds a way to bring a gun to school.  And where were the metal detectors?  When will society learn…gun laws need to change.
