This morning 20 little kids were sent off to school by their parents, were met by the school administrators, and were welcomed to their rooms by their teachers.
Tonight there is only sadness in their homes and across the nation because they are not coming home - not being hugged by their parents - or tucked into their beds - or celebrating Christmas or their special holidays.
May God bless them and their families.
We pray for the teachers and school administrators who did not get to go home today either.
May they rest in peace.
