Central Ohio Mourns With Newtown, CT COLUMBUS -- The first Sunday since the tragic school massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary brought more people to the places of their faiths.In temples and churches across central Ohio, thousands of people gathered to sing, pray and just think about those who lost their lives. "For healing," St. Philip Episcopal Youth Director, Anthony Thompson said. "Strength for the family and for the souls of those kids who lost their lives at such an early age."A father himself, Thompson was moved by the way parents and teachers came together after such a horrific event."As we move on from what happened here, what happened to so many people, let it not turn into something that defines us but something that inspires us to be better, more compassionate and more humble people," said Robert Parker, father of Emilie Parker, one of the children killed.Those few words hit home for Thompson and St. Philip Episcopal Father Karl Ruttan."Our faith, our hope will not be defeated," Fr. Ruttan said. "Of course, it reminds us that we live in a deeply, deeply broken world."An awful reminder but a reminder nonetheless, feelings telling us that we are alive. The emotions those parents feel in Newtown, Conn. are being felt right here in Ohio. The heartache is shared."It means everything to us and to parents all around the world," Thompson described it.No matter what faith, he believes the world can overcome this tragedy and become stronger.

5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee;(GOD ORDAINED OR LIVES BEFORE WE WERE EVEN CREATED IN A WOMANS BODY)(GOD NEVER CREATED ANYONE HOMOSEXUAL)(AND THIS TELLS US ABORTION IS MURDER) and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
GENESIS 4:8-11 (THE FIRST MURDER)
8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
9 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?
10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.
11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;
GENESIS 6:11-13 (EARTH DESTROYED BECAUSE OF TERRORISM,MURDERS)
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
13 Thou shalt not kill.(Murder)(THAT INCLUDES ABORTION)
12 He that smiteth (MURDER)a man,(OR BABY) so that he die, shall be surely put to death.(THATS THE DEATH PENALTY PEOPLE)
20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils,(OCCULT) and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries,(DRUG ADDICTIONS) nor of their fornication,(SEX OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE) nor of their thefts.(STEALING)
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
6 But whoso shall offend (HURT) one of these little ones (CHILDREN) which believe in me,(JESUS) it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.(THATS THE DEATH PENALTY FOLKS)

Sandy Hook School
The school's motto is "Think you can, work hard, get smart, be kind."Like most other elementary schools in town, Sandy Hook has a cafetorium, which is a room used both as a cafeteria and auditorium. The school does not have a language lab but does have a math/science lab.At the end of the 2009-10 year, principal Donna Page retired and was replaced by Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung, the former principal of Mitchell Elementary School in Woodbury.
Rachel D'Avino Obituary
Rachel D'Avino (Handout photo)(AP)
THE MEDICAL EXAMINER SAID ALL THE CHILDREN WERE KILLED BY THE RIFFLE NOT THE HAND GUNS.AND THAT ALL THE CHILDREN KILLED WERE GRADE 1 STUDENTS.
THIS IS ONLY MY TAKE ON WHAT HAPPENED.NOT THE OFFICIAL HAPPENINGS IN THIS TIMELINE.
ITS 1:43 PM SUN DEC 16,12
ADAM LANZAS MURDER RAMPAGE AT NEWTOWN CONNECTICUT SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.ITS REPORTED ADAM LANZA HAD AUTISM.
WHAT WE KNOW
-The possible motive was the day before the shooting THU Dec 13,12.Adam and three of the 6 dead Adults killed on Friday had a confrontation of some sort.I never heard what the confrontation was about,but this probably got Adam so mad,he snapped and decided hes going after them the next day.I figure he had the confrontation with the Principal,the Physchologist and Rachael (D'Avino was a behavioral therapist).We will find out when the Police give us their motive if i was on the right track with this one.But he had Autism so I figure these 3 would be dealing with Adam.
Since Rachael was just new to the school,and maybe somehow got to know Nancy Lanza.Maybe Nancy wanted to try to get help for Adam.But he refused and wanted nothing to do with it.If the 3 did have a confrontation about the situation.It would probably be about him attending special classes in the School or something like that.And Adam might only let Rachael help with him at his place only.He wanted nothing to do with classes at the School.And this situation could have set off a confrontation and Adams inside rage.
-Adam Killed his Mother Sometime before 9:30 AM fri Dec 14,12.
-Adam goes to Sandy Hook and parks his car near the Front Door of Sandy Hook in the Parking lot.
-Adam shoots out the front door or breaks the window with something.
-So we know Adam broke the window.So it was at least 9:31AM when Adam broke the window because the way the alarm system was set up at Sandy Hook.The doors automatically lock at 9:30AM when school starts.And after its locked.You need to ring so you can get in from the Office i presume.And your face is on camera so they know who you are.
-Reports says as soon as he broke in the teachers and students start hearing pop,pop,popping sounds.
-Instantly the office members-The Principal,Vice Principal and Phsychologist go in the hall to see whats going on.The Principal and the Phsychologist were shot and killed.The Vice Principal was shot in the Arm and leg went running back into the Office.There was 600 Students and 50 faculty members in the school at the time.
-Adam must have came in just after 9:31AM or in that area of the Hall there would not have been some children or Adults.
-We know this all happened near the front door of the School were the 1ST grade classes and the Office was.And there must be a Washroom in that area because we know some of the children were huddled in that washroom when they were shot and killed.In a press Conference the Officer said it happened in one section of the school in two rooms.
-At 9:41AM the 911 calls started coming into Police.
-We know Adam shot in the hallway.So i am just speculating here.He must have shot the Adults first as the Office was right near the Main Door.
-Adam must have seen Children from one of the grade 1 classes escaping the gunfire by going into the washroom in the area.
-Now today Sun we just Find out that it was Lauren Rousseau's first grade class that Adam Lanza first entered.Lauren was just at Sandy Hook 6 weeks.And Lauren just became a fulltime teacher.So it must have been Laurens room were most of the Children were killed and some of them probably escaped and went in the Hallway washroom and Adam then went in and killed them.We will see when the Official timeline comes out.Now we know no one was killed in the hall washroom.Forteen of the fifteen children died in this class.One child pretended she was dead and survived.
-The Medical Examiner said the killings were all up close and personal in all the 20 dead children who had from 3 to 11 bullets in their precious little bodies.
-Then Adam went to Grade 1 class Vicki Sotos class.all speculation on my part.And by news reports-Adam shot Vicki who told Adam there is no Children in this class as Vicki told the children to hide before he came in the room and killed her.Reports have it.But as Adam was killing Vicki,the Children came out of hiding oviously and wanted to get out of the class.And Miraculasly one child held the door open for some or the rest of the children from the class and they escaped out the front door.We do not know if all the children made it out or not.But my guess is not all the Children did make it out.We now know in Vickis room 7 children escaped and probably here is were the 6 children got shot in the washroom.
-I should add here that someone opened the office microphone so the whole school knew,something was going on but they did not know exactly what.They just knew they heard gunshots and screaming going on.
-We know by reports that once the Police came on the scene.Adam killed himself.And it was probably in Vicki Sotos room is my guess as we know he never shot himself in the washroom.
-We know 2 children were taken to hospital after the Police came on the scene.As latter on in the afternoon we were told 2 children died in the Hospital.And the third one taken to the Hospital injured was a parent of one of the teachers reports said.She was not killed and i am not sure if shes out of Hospital yet as of SUN DEC 16,12 2:45PM.
-It was reported by the Medical Examiner that all the deaths were from a Riffle,Not the 2 Hand guns that were by the dead killer.
-As reported falsely Adams Mother Nancy never worked at Sandy Hook.
-Adams Brother Ryan was takin in for questioning.But he was set free after that.
-Adam Killed his Mother Nancy Lanza at His or Her home in Newtown Connecticut.Before he Killed the OTHER 26 Children and Adults at Sandy Hook School.
-Ryan Lanza lives in New Jersey,not in Newtown Connecticut.
-When the final timeline by POLICE COMES OUT.I WILL UPDATE THIS STORY.
-Adam wanted to go in the Army.But Adam had phobias about being touched and going places.Nancy was disapppointed with Adam.
-Adam was into computers and Nancy was ok with leaving him alone for a couple of days at a time.
BEFORE THIS SHOOTING THERE WAS ONLY 1 PERSON KILLED IN NEWTOWN CONNECTICUT IN THE LAST 10 YEARS.

WEAPONS USED IN THE SHOOTING
So sad. The last photo of a first grade class at Sandy Hook Elementary School shows 15 happy faces just months before they were all tragically killed by gunman Adam Lanza. Substitute teacher Lauren Rousseau was also killed along with the class. How tragic.Hand Gun - 9MM By Glock Semi-Automatic
Hand Gun - 9MM By Sig Sauer Semi-Automatic
Rifle - A-R15 Type .223-caliber Semi-Automatic (ALL 3 LEGALLY PURCHASED BY NANCY LANZA)
Adam Used the 2 Hand Guns in the shooting at the school.But the Rifle was found in his car outside the School.I JUST HOPE ADAM DID NOT DO THIS BECAUSE HE BELIEVED THE MAYAN HOGWASH END OF THE WORLD NON-SENSE.BECAUSE THE WORLD NEVER ENDS.
There now saying THURSDAY Adam had some kind of trouble at Sandy Hook with 3 of the killed Adults.Some kind of dispute.

http://wkml.com/fastfeed/abc-digital-news - ABC DIGITAL NEWS(NEWTOWN, Conn.) -- There was so much gunfire rocking the Sandy Hook Elementary school that one teacher doubted that she and her young students, locked in a bathroom, were going to survive.A third grade student said the kids were so scared she thought she was going to throw up. Another said he hid in a closet.The gunfire erupted during first grade teacher Kaitlin Roig's morning meeting with her 14 students, what she called "a happy, amazing part of the day."That day quickly turned into a nightmare."Suddenly, I heard rapid fire... like an assault weapon. I knew something was wrong," Roig, 29, told "World News" anchor Diane Sawyer."It was horrific," she said. "I didn't think we were going to live."Alexis Wasik, an 8-year-old third grader, was startled when she heard someone rapidly firing off rounds inside another classroom. At first, she didn't know what was going on, but then she began to hear the sirens wail."We heard an ambulance and police officer come and everyone was a little scared crying and I felt actually a little sick and like I was going to throw up," she said. "Kids were crying, not really like screaming, but they were all huddling together. They felt so sick."It was 9:41 a.m. when the first 911 call came into Connecticut State Police that multiple students at Sandy Hook Elementary School were locked in a classroom with a gunman. Adam Lanza killed 20 students and six adults at the school.When the shooting began, Roig said she quickly got up and closed her classroom door and ushered the children, all aged 6 and 7, into the class bathroom. She helped some climb onto the toilet so they could all fit. Roig said she then pushed a wheeled storage unit in front of the door."We all got in there. I locked us in," she said. "I don't know if [the gunman] came in the room... I just told them we have to be absolutely quiet.""If they started crying, I would take their face and tell them, 'It's going to be OK,'" Roig continued. "I wanted that to be the last thing they heard, not the gunfire in the hall."Roig said she just tried to stay strong for her students, but she didn't think they would make it out of the classroom alive."I thought we were all going to die," she said through tears. "I told the kids I love them and I was so happy they were my students... I said anyone who believed in the power of the prayer, we need to pray and those who don't believe in prayer" think happy thoughts.Throughout the ordeal, Roig said her students were being very good and she tried to remain positive for them."They asked, 'Can we go see if anyone is out there... I just want Christmas... I don't want to die, I just want to have Christmas," she said.The gunfire didn't last very long, Roig said, but even when it stopped, she refused to take the kids out of the bathroom. When she heard knocking on the door a little while later, she said heard voices saying they were police officers, but she refused to open the door. Scared it was the gunman trying to lure them out, Roig told them to slide their badges under the bathroom door to prove their identities."I didn't believe them," she said. "I told them if they were cops, they could get the key... They did and then unlocked the bathroom."Students who spoke to ABC News Radio told more stories of teachers who protected them during the shooting rampage. One 9-year-old boy said his class heard "a lot of bangs" and at first they thought a custodian had "knocked stuff down." Then they heard screaming.
"Police came in, said like 'Is he in here?' Then he ran out and then our teacher, somebody, yelled, 'get to a safe place.' So we went to the closet in the gym," the boy said. "The police were like knocking on the door and they're like 'we're evacuating people, we're evacuating people,' so we ran out." After the police got Roig and her class out of their room, she said she and the children were taken to the nearby fire station, which had been set up as a staging area for parents to come pick up their kids.That fire house, where Christmas wreaths and poinsettias are for sale, has been turned into a place of grief where frantic parents were either reuniting with their children or learning that their children are dead, or were still waiting for word.Children stared wide-eyed as they watched state police troopers in body armor, holding raised rifles, quickly rush to secure the scene at their school. Parents said they had never been so panicked. One father, hoping to preserve a semblance of innocence, shielded his son's eyes with his forearm.Wasik's mother said she found out about a shooting through the school's alert system, which sent her a message about a lockdown, and is still in disbelief."It just doesn't seem real," she said. "It feels like a nightmare. You drop your kids at school, hugs and kisses, have a good day, I'll see you later and see you at the end of the day and you never know… in 20 minutes from now what's going to happen. And you count your blessings everyday for what you have."

KAITLINS NEW MESSAGE ON HER SITE AS OF SUNDAY DEC 16.THE OTHER MESSAGE WAS ON YESTERDAY YET DEC 15,12.
Hello first grade friends and parents! Welcome to our class website! You will find many useful resources and information on our page! Check back for updates!
Police find "good evidence" on motive for Connecticut school massacre
The attacker, identified by law enforcement sources as Adam Lanza, opened fire on Friday morning at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, which teaches children aged 5 to 10. The shooter killed 26 people before turning the gun on himself, and was suspected of killing another person before the massacre.
"Our investigators at the crime scene ... did produce some very good evidence in this investigation that our investigators will be able to use in, hopefully, painting the complete picture as to how - and more importantly why - this occurred," Connecticut State Police Lieutenant Paul Vance told a news conference.
The shooting has tormented the town of Newtown, once listed as the fifth-safest city in the America but now in crisis.
Yale-New Haven Hospital opened a crisis-intervention center in the wealthy suburb of 27,000 people about 80 miles from New York City. By mid-morning about 50 cars were parked outside. A sign warned media to stay away.
"If healing can come some day, that's what I want to ask God to do," said Andrea Jaeger, who placed a small candle at the makeshift memorial for the victims at the entrance to the school's driveway on Saturday morning. "Children's lives were lost and that's something we all feel."
The tragedy moved President Barack Obama to tears on national television on Friday and rattled a country that has grown accustomed to mass shootings, but not with victims so young. It also stood to revive a debate about U.S. gun laws.
"The kids who died were in two first-grade classrooms (6-year-olds)," said Mary Ann Jacob, a library clerk who described leading children out of danger during the shooting.
Vance, the police spokesman, declined to describe the evidence gathered about the shooter's motives but did say the gunman forced his way into the school, as opposed to being let in.
Crime-scene investigators worked through the night and moved the bodies to the state medical examiner's office for autopsies, police said in a statement. Victims' names had yet to be released.
The adult woman found at the secondary crime scene was related to the shooter, a police news release said, and many media outlets have reported it was the shooter's mother, Nancy Lanza.
POLICE INVESTIGATE THE GUNS
Nancy Lanza legally owned a Sig Sauer and a Glock, both handguns of models commonly used by police, and a military-style Bushmaster .223 M4 carbine, according to law enforcement officials who also believe Adam Lanza used at least some of those weapons.
"We're investigating the history of each and every weapon and we will know every single thing about those weapons," Vance said.
Nancy Lanza was an avid gun collector who once showed him a "really nice, high-end rifle" that she had purchased, said Dan Holmes, owner of a landscaping business who recently decorated her yard with Christmas garlands and lights. "She said she would often go target shooting with her kids."
Vance pointedly urged the news media to leave alone the families of the shooting victims and said a police officer had been assigned to each family "to help to maintain that solitude."
Former classmates of the shooter remembered him as a quiet loner - someone who dressed more formally than other students, often wearing khaki pants, button-down shirts and at times, a pocket protector.
"(His mother) pushed him really hard to be smarter and work harder in school," said Tim Arnone, 20, who first met Lanza at Sandy Hook.
Newtown was ranked the fifth safest city in America by the website NeighborhoodScout.com based on 2011 crime statistics.
"This wonderful town that we all love for its peace, beauty, the great schools - all of that - has become Columbine," said Julie Maxwell Shull, a sixth-grade teacher at Reed Intermediate School, referring to the high school that was site of a 1999 shooting in Colorado.
"We came here because it was going to be a good, safe community for our kids, said Catherine Hunyadi, as she and her husband wiped tears from their eyes. "You don't send your kids to school thinking something like this might happen."
Obama on Saturday urged Americans to join in solidarity as they mourned the victims, saying the hearts of parents across the country were "heavy with hurt."
Obama, in his weekly radio and Internet address, called for "meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this," but stopped short of specifically calling for tighter gun-control laws.
The president wiped away tears in a television address on Friday, telling the nation, "Our hearts are broken."
The holiday season tragedy was the second shooting rampage in the United States this week and the latest in a series of mass killings this year.
It revived a debate about gun-control in a country with a flourishing firearms culture and a strong lobby that has discouraged most politicians from any major efforts to address the easy availability of guns and ammunition.
The death toll exceeded that of one of the most notorious U.S. school shootings, the 1999 rampage at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, where two teenagers murdered 13 students and staff before killing themselves.

The first official says Adam Lanza's older brother, 24-year-old Ryan, of Hoboken, N.J., is being questioned by police.
