Another Fearful Massacre

OMG. News just in that the death toll in the latest school shooting, this one at an elementary school in Connecticut, has reached 27, eighteen of the victims being children. The shooter, who is reportedly the father of a child at the school, is among the dead.

Kyrie eleison. And pray for the injured and the families of the victims.
