1. I am impressed with President Obama’s eulogy to the people and survivors of last Friday’s violence. He spoke of love, prayers and God. He reminded us that we are all together in this time of sorrow and that Newton, Connecticut is not alone. His ending paragraph gives me hope that he will lead us in the right direction.
“May God bless and keep those we’ve lost in His heavenly place. May He grace those we still have with His holy comfort. and may He bless and watch over this community, and the United States of America.”2. To the people of Newtown, Connecticut, especially the families of the victims, you are in my prayers. May God watch over you and help you through this time of sorrow. May He provide you the strength to continue with your lives.

So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger.
When they saw this, they made known the message that had been told them about this child.

And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.
Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them.
