We are all still coming to grip the horror of the shooting at the Newtown School on Friday but we cannot change what happened. What we can do now is to learn from it and plan (as schools) how we should prepare for such situations if they may occur. The Newtown teachers were exceptionally brave in the face of terror and I just hope that all of the survivors are given all of the counseling and support that they need to help them to cope and carry on with their lives.
The bravery of the heroic Newtown teachers is truly embodied in this quote: "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." –Martin Luther King, Jr.
Let's keep the families of all of the Newtown teachers and students in our prayers.
