Please keep Sandy Hook Elementary in your prayers.

How could they do this?
27 killed, 18 CHILDREN.
How could they take this towns bliss?

The town next to me,
5 minutes from where i was,
A tragic killing spree,
My school in a buzz.

My schools doors locked,
Police surround,
Everyone was shocked
There wasn't a sound.

In just moments the nation knew,
This doesn't feel real,
How could this be true?
It's numbness I feel.

Im shaking,
Im scared,
I can't seem to grasp it...

I sit here in my tears,
Surrounded by fears,
Please keep the adults and children in your prayers. <3 RIP
I know I dont write poetry or even write on Deviantart....but this directly effected me...i knew kids there...my teachers cried..my principal made the announcement during my normal Algebra class...

I cant believe this happened 5 minutes away from where I was...it doesnt feel real..

I pray for those families and kids <3

A family that used to live in our neighborhood went there. 3 of the 5 kids they had went to that school and were there when it happened. Non of them died, luckily. I'm still worried for their sanity, though.

we had an intruder drill a few days before this.... never thought much of it. everyone was talking the whole time, and the teacher yelled at us. then this happened...man, if that happened at my school, i'd probably be dead now. i'm definitely gonna take those drills more seriously now... *goes to cry in corner* :(

I was in lockdown for 2 hours. We're maybe 20 minutes away from the school. My mom is in tears beside me. My friends have family there. Some went there themselves.

I live about a half hour away....it's just a tragedy what happened. I'm so sorry for you all and for the students and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School. We found out around 2 this afternoon. I was in shock. I'm terribly sorry that you were so directly affected with this terrible event. I can only hope that you and everyone that was affected as well are okay. My thoughts and prayers will be for the mourning families for a while.

Oh my gosh. Everyone's been in my prayers. I don't live anywhere near Connecticut but when I found out, I instantly was shocked and if I wasn't sitting when I found out, I probably would have fallen over. I just couldn't help but imagine all those poor, scared children there. It furiates me that people are so insane these days that they'd actually kill innocent kids, too. And so close to Christmas, it's so depressing. I hope the kids you knew there are alright and I'll be keeping everyone in my prayers.

Its devistating. I turned on my tv just a minute ago to get my mind off of it, im not even on a news channel and theres a picture of a crying child. I started crying so hard. There was no reason all those innocent children had to be killed. 27 families are devistated. My town is right next to it! 8.5 miles. I go to newtown every wednesday!! I feel like this world is getting worse, we were always told we were a safe town...

I know, I feel like the world is going down the gutter. I just can't help thinking about all those children. My mom said that if she wasn't at work she would've started crying right there when she first heard of it. We were talking about it this afternoon and she was saying how she thinks maybe it's a way to open our eyes to how bad the world is getting and to help unite people but I don't know. That sounded a lot better in my head. Did you hear about the first grade teacher who barricaded her and her students in the bathroom to hide from the gunman though? I think that just shows that there are some serious heroes hidden in the world that don't reveal themselves until times of need. I almost started crying when I heard about it it was so moving for me.

i heard about that, that woman is a hero. she saved 15 kids lives. we need more people like her. and i think your mom is right, this is a way to open our eyes. i really feel like this world is spiraling down..7 shootings within the last 6 months! starting with the shooting at the batman movie..which made me afriad to see that movie....now an elementary school in my county? im terrified to go to school....we need to come together and make this place safer to live as a nation...i mean even obama had to hold back tears while making his speech

Exactly. I didn't find out about the shooting until I was on the bus on my way home from school and I was absolutely freaked out, I was scared to get off the bus. I almost sprinted home because I was scared people would pull a chain reaction or get inspired or something. We all really do need to come together and make this world a better place. The phrase of "Tragedy ends segregation" has been pulsing through my brain all afternoon. The unexpected insanity of it all was racking my brain so much I ended up writing a short story inspired by it just to get it all off my chest. I don't even know how I'm going to sleep tonight though.

we need this world to be better. my uncle thinks people are going crazy over the "world ending" crap, he thinks when thats done, everything might become okay again. its going to be so hard to go back to school tomorrow, seeing everyone wearing our support shirts...hearing our moment of silence...i dont think i can make it thru the day....

Thts whats making it such a reality to me. I was driving to my dads house in danbury, and i look over to the traffic on my right (because newtown is closed) , and that also made me realize this is actually happening...scary to think we were that far from the worst school shooting in america
