Pray for the families whose children were gunned down in Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Pray for the families of the principal, teachers and others who put themselves in harm's way so that others might be saved.
Pray for the survivors of the Sandy Hook massacre. They will never be the same.
Pray for the community of Newtown, Conn., which now must bury the dead, pick up the pieces and move on. Somehow.
Pray for the first responders who could not have been prepared for the devastation they found inside that school.
Pray for parents everywhere who now must explain to their children why something so terrible happens. How do you answer the question of 'could it happen here?' when it can.
Pray for families with a loved one living with mental illness, who struggle with how to deal with that mental illness every day.
Pray for our nation's leaders, who now must have the courage to draft laws and policies that will protect this country's most precious resource - its children.
After all, it's no longer a matter of 'if' a mass killing will happen again, but when.
