I'm not really sure how this will turn out. I'm not used to writing poems like this but my heart just breaks after hearing about the elementary school shooting in Newtown, CT

How could you have known not to send your little one on the bus?

How could you have possibly known that it would be the last time you tell them you loved them?

How could you have known that they would never finish their day?

It breaks my heart to hear about what happened

Innocent children lost their lives

They were just little kids

Still in Elementary school, never able to attend their high school prom

Right before Christmas too

They probably have unopen gifts under the trees

But on the bright side they are spending Chrismas with Jesus

I'm so sorry for your losses

You are in my thoughts and prayers

I couldn't even imagine losing a child

So young, so innocent, lives are lost

All due to a very sick man

Who could have predicted?

Why would he even do that?

I can never understand why someone would do that

I can't imagine being their parents or loved one.

It was just a regular school day, all bubbly for Christmas break

They started their forever break

They are in heaven now looking down on us.

We all have gained a few extra angles looking down on us.

My heart breaks for everyone

I'm a senior in high school and I know they will never get the full experience

God bless you and everybody involved!
