Sad Day In America

There a voice heard, lamantation, weeping, and great mourning...

Sad Day

As a former teacher and principal, I feel so sad for the teachers and young children that started their day taking books and lunches — teacher getting last minute things together – maybe a bagel in her mouth as she runs out the door — then the unthinkable happened — shots, panic — then all was silent — 19 children and two teachers will not be going home.


In Rama was there a voice heard, lamantation, weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.” Matthew 2:18
The nineteen students and two teachers killed in the shooting were:
  • Uziyah Garcia, 9
  • Xavier Javier Lopez, 10
  • Jose Flores, 10
  • Miranda Mathis, 11
  • Eva Mireles, 44
  • Ellie Garcia, 10
  • Tess Marie Mata, 10
  • Eliahana “Elijah” Cruz Torres, 10
  • Annabell Guadalupe Rodriguez, 10
  • Irma Garcia, 48
  • Nevaeh Bravo, 10
  • Makenna Elrod, 10
  • Maite Yuleana Rodriguez, 10
  • Alithia Ramirez, 10
  • Jayce Carmelo Luevanos, 10
  • Jailah Nicole Silguero, 11
  • Rogelio Torres, 10
  • Alexandria “Lexi” Aniyah Rubio, 10
  • Amerie Jo Garza, 10
  • Jackie Cazares, 10
  • Layla Salazar, 10
The children were in the second, third, and fourth grades. The teachers were Irma Garcia, age 48, and Eva Mireles, age 44, two fourth grade teachers who taught in the same classroom. –Wikipedia

Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him.

Psalm 127:3
