Children are the very definition of innocence. They freely forgive without hesitation, they love tenderly without judgment, and they are spotlessly pure from the sins of an aging life. There are no words reverent enough to speak of those children who are robbed of their beautiful precious lives and those who chose to spend their days protecting and serving these angels from God. When a tragic event claims its right to a human soul the earth mourns and dies a little with those who are left behind to try and pick up the pieces. Sixty miles north of New York City one can find the small scenic town of Newtown Connecticut. Newtown is known as a quaint little place where everybody knows everybody, warm smiles are often exchanged, and visitors are always welcomed. This inviting carefree town was shaken to its core on a cold December morning when the darkest form of evil wrapped its murderous fingers around the very heart of every American. 20 year old Adam Lanza shot and murdered his mother Nancy Lanza on the morning of December 14, 2012 .He then continued his hell driven rampage to the local Sandy hook Elementary School. Once there Lanza shot his way into the school around 9:30 am. He then proceeded to take the life of 6 heroic teachers and shed the most pure and innocent blood of 20 beautiful bright-eyed children between the ages of 5-8. News of this sickening tragedy spread quickly and pierced the heart of every American. Leaving the nation humbled and in a hollow shock.
