    1. If prayers work, pray that the next shooting doesnโ€™t happen. Oh wait, people do that all the time.

  1. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿฅบ

    At least the police responded correctly. Except for the man bragging and acting like it’s a photo op.

    The poor families ๐Ÿฅบ

    1. They won’t say anything meaningful anyhow since it was an anti-christian hate crime perpetuated by a member of the trans community. (The female subject, whose name I won’t repeat, used he/him pronouns according to the now-scrubbed social media accounts)
      P.s. No, it’s not “Samantha Hyde” – that’s an old Meme.

    1. @I’mYoUrHosT ToAsT O_o Really? So you’ve been here since the beginning of the world. If it gives you a good conscience to think that way, more power to you.

    2. @gulun couloundel nah but cmon it used to be at least 1000x time worse. now individual incidents gets pushed to the front of the news where as before you were lucky to even make it past child birth

    3. โ€‹@gulun couloundel the first US school massacre was by dynamite. So yes it does happen, but we now see it immediately.

  2. May the people who lost their lives Rest In Peace and my deepest condolences to their families and friends.

  3. Our hearts thoughts love and Prayers are with the families of the victims. Our deepest heart condolences are with the families in Jesus name. Amen โค

  4. My heart aches for the children, and the families who have lost their babies. When will we get serious about preventing these murderous tragedies?

    1. @Carol Summers Putting a gun inside the classroom, brilliant, which thimble of giving 70-year-old, 5’1″ Ms. Stephens the responsibility of a firearm in the classroom did that idea come from. Teachers are overworked and underpaid as it is — and you want to give them more burden and responsibility outside of teaching, and an unrealistic expectation at that of learning firearm management. Joke settings there

  5. My prayers go out to the families affected in this horrible tragedy. Home school your children.

    1. Agree!!!! Homeschool, it is not that hard, does not require an entire day , more relaxed, and way cheaper! Plus, they can be kept safe๐Ÿ˜Š

  6. Sending prayers to the the children teachers and all the other people in that school who had to deal with hearing that that’s really bad

  7. Sending prayers for the families and friends that were affected by this horrible tragedy. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

  8. Sending my condolences and prayers to the parents and families who lost their loved ones. And to the First Responders for handling this tragedy in a professional manner! This world is getting more dark and evil!

  9. Here we go….. condolences and prayers…. from the party who wants these shootings to continue!

  10. Keep offering your prayers, people. Prayers have worked SO well so far, and I’m sure it makes you feel so much better about yourselves… “A pair of hands at work are worth more than a thousands clasped in prayer.”
