I saw this this morning. The picture that goes with it really brought out the water works for me.

Sweet, minus that stuff about taking over the nation and the schools, that’s a little too creepy Rush Limbaugh-y for my tastes.

@atlbride2013:  Totally agree.

Also, I hope (if that’s the right word), that all the people that died in that tragedy were Christian, or this would be grossly inappropriate

@LadyElva:  I don’t think it is grossly innapropriate in any regard. It’s just a sweet poem. We can only hope and pray they are in a better place.

Too Jesus-y for this Jew.

@LadyElva:  for crying out loud– it is a sweet poem that is meant to bring hope to those who are grieving, and portray the innocent lives lost as having a second chance in a happy, loving and safe place. It was not grossly inappropriate, it was just a quick thought on an internet forum that someone decided to share. It is not being read to the country by the President, or displayed at a memorial.

@Blush.Champagne:  To Christians, I’m sure this is very heartwarming. As someone who isn’t, I would not be pleased if someone told me that my child had posthumously accepted Jesus as their king.

In most of those families a hope that they are with Jesus or in heaven is all they have now! This is not a debate on whether or not Christianity is real.

 

It’s sad how the lives of these children were lost and so many people feel only the need to debate and argue over gun control religious issues what could have been done etc.

Things need to be done to prevent this but arguments debates and comments like ones above help nothing, especially not the families that are still grieving and likely will for many years to come

@Mrs_Amanda:  It’s very strongly religious with political sentiments. Bringing god back into school? Umm, no.

 

Forcing religion on people won’t stop someone with a mental illness from killing people. I don’t appreciate someone using this atrocity in a way that’s masqerading as a remorseful prayer. It’s clearly a channel to state a certain agenda, which is the furthering of Christianity, including into schools.

@Mrs_Amanda:  I understand that and it probably does bring hope to a lot of people. I am Christian and it makes me feel uncomfortable. I don’t believe religion belongs in schools and I don’t like these deaths being used or manipulated to make a religious point. @LadyElva:  makes a good point though- if any of the children who were murdered or their families are not Christian, I do find it a little…distasteful. Almost like a religious belief is being forced on them after death.
