We are not a religious family but the first sign of trouble, we always say OH GOD, When someone is in trouble and needs help, I go to bed at night and ask God to help them. When my son was really poorley, I went to bed and asked God to make him better. So I guess what I am trying to say, deep down, I must believe in God. I don’t understand, why all the bad things have to happen. And like so many people must ask themselves, if there was a God, why does it happen. I guess we will never know the answer to that one. Here is a poem, I found, I thought it was just nice to post it. I am sure all our hearts are breaking for the families of those little Angels. I hoped I would never have to do a post like this.

When God calls little children
to dwell with him above,
We mortals sometime question
the wisdom of his love
For no heartache compares with
the death of one small child
Who does so much to make our world,
seem wonderful and mild
Perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to his fold,
So He picks a rosebud,
before he can grow old.
God knows how much we need them,
and so he takes but a few
To make the land of Heaven
more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult still
somehow we must try,
The saddest word mankind knows will always be “Goodbye.”
So when a little child departs
we who are left behind
Must realize God loves children,
Angels are hard to find.

candleRest in peace little Angels.

  1. Hi Mollie this is a most heartfelt post and we do so agree. The last line what we have always hear with a child dies…”God needed an angel”. Mom has felt very blah all day…sick relatives during the holidays who have lost their independence and are not coping well and now the loss of these precious children and their teachers and such suffering of the families. No answers for sure….Mom cannot imagine the loss of a child…in such a senseless act. One thing we are sure of the criminal will spend an eternity paying for his sins.
    Lots of hugs
    Madi and Mom

  2. What a beautiful post about something that’s so very hard to talk or write or even think about. It’s just beyond all reason. There are many rosebuds in heaven’s garden after yesterday…..and many broken hearts among the people of Newtown and the world today. Thanks for sharing the poem – it does put into words something that’s difficult to express.


  3. Today is a very sad day and one that will be remembered for a very long time…Those poor children, instead of being remembered for all the wonderful things they might have done are now only to be remembered as victims…What a tragedy

  4. What a beautiful post, Mollie and Alfie. We have done nothing but pray. This is beyond horrible. It’s such a tragedy. Tonight on the news, the students names and ages were revealed. Most of them were just 6 years old. So very sad.

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  5. That is a very beautiful poem for the little ones. Just such a sad thing to happen, so much hurt and no understanding of why.

  6. Oh my, that is beautiful but a real tear jerker.
    Somewhere, deep inside, you do believe in God and please believe that this is not His work, it is the work of the devil. We can only pray for God to give the parents of these children strength in what must be the most horrendous time of their lives.

  7. If believing in God helps people through tragedies then it is something bootiful.

    This is a terrible thing to have happened and Mummy spent a long while just cuddling the little hoomans. Normally whee would be jealous but not this time. Our hearts break for the families of those taken far to soon.
