  1. Oh Heavenly Father. I lift all the students, teachers, first responders ,parents , and medical personnel be comforted and please bless them. Give them strength and your courage.
    In Jesus’ name amen.

  2. God just let Jesus come back now and end all this corruption, it’s going to end one way or another in the end of times. May all you call home RIP. Amen

  3. Someone working for that school should have had a concealed weapon permit and engaged with the shooter before he had a chance to shoot. Most likely someone hypothesized to do this be the Democratic left agenda. This is no reason to gun grab law abiding gun owners.

  4. Prayers for these innocent victims and their families. This should not be happening in America. God love and Bless them.

  5. So sad our society has degraded to this point. Schools need well trined armed guards like firmer military. Stuffer sentences and capital punishment in all 50 states!

  6. So sad and heartbroken over this, God rest those little children. Prayers for everyone involved. This is such an upsetting sad world and place that we’re in and I will never understand it.
