It's coming out that Adam was living with many disorders. He had a form of autism it seems, a disorder that makes it hard to feel pain, issues with withdrawing and fears of water and crowds. He would supposedly hug the walls at school and avoid people at times.

I don't know for sure, but knowing how cruel students can be, I can't imagine him not being persecuted to some extent, although that hasn't come out in full as of yet. Being brilliant and having issues learning must have been hard, I don't know what they offered, what his mother wanted or didn't want, but this psychotic break might have been lurking for a while.

We have to be more aware of mental illness and not stigmatize. Some people are evil, but others have less control over their actions and that needs to be recognized much earlier.

I pray for all involved, this is a nightmare that will go on for a very long time, forever for many.

Such beautiful and innocent children.





Spring is finally here, the lovely pink blooms on the "spray" tree outside my window are gone leaving a beautiful willow.

Yes...But the trouble is not only this...The problem deals with the folowing question: Which reasons push a guy to kill in that way? What mechanism in a man psycje makes a murderer of him? he could get a gun or not...but the fact is that he WANTED to kill all those people. Why??? scratchead Blue bawling cryB

I've talked with adults older than me a lot about the gun laws since Friday, and all of them agreed that changing the laws won't change anything. If a person like this man who terrorized Newtown has issues as he most obviously did, the changed law isn't going to stop him. And if anything, taking that right away from citizens would cause even more problems, because some people believe very strongly in their right to bear arms.

Well, the current laws in place worked. They say Lanza attempted to purchase a gun 3 days before the incident and was denied. No law is going to prevent someone taking a gun that doesn't belong to them and using it in a crime. Besides, criminals and unstable people aren't going to come by their weapons legally anyway. I'm not saying we should do nothing. I'm not sure why weapons like the high-powered rifle used by Lanza are available to anyone outside of military personnel. It just doesn't seem that new laws are the answer. At least not all of the answer.

Exactly. Couldn't agree more.

THAT is what I want to know. That seriously needs to change.

We need to protect our children more but more has to be done for the mentally ill also. Many people who were bullied or not included become angry and depressed and if they don't just kill themselves (which is also awful) they can hurt others. We choose things in life, but sometimes with other factors, emotional issues, it seems to choose us.

We must be more open to not just hiding mental illness, helping them and not just hiding them, the shame, etc. has to change. We have to teach our children not to hate what's different.

Arming teachers sounds good when you feel unsafe and trying to grasp it all....but can you imagine how many things can go wrong with that?

bawling This is the status on ReindeerCam.com The names will be the only ones scrolling today, then the others will be added back in.





In memory or the tragedy in CT, all of those who lost their lives will be scrolling on the nice list today. Santa and the Elves are extremely saddened by the event and want to pay them respect in this holiday season.

After today their names will not be removed but will be within the names of the rest of the kids on the Nice List.
Santa is almost here!

Thats really nice of them. Sometimes it just helps to know you've done something. We all feel so helpless, when we can't find words .




It is the lack of Christianity that has brought us where we are. Not a lack of churches or religious forms but of the real thing in our hearts. LIW.....Words From a Fearless Heart
