Gun Free School zone -interesting factoid

Off-duty police officers

The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA), which was intended to entitle qualified law enforcement officers to carry weapons nation-wide, does not provide any exceptions to Federal Law per 18 U.S.C. § 926B. Although the GFSZA does provide an exception for a law-enforcement officer performing their official duties, it does not provide any protection for an off-duty officer.[13] An off-duty LEOSA qualified officer is unable to legally travel within one-thousand (1000) feet of any K-12 school while armed unless he/she has a valid carry license issued by that state.[11][13][14]

Christmas didn’t die. Christmas will be celebrated forever because CHRIST LIVES!

JESUS is the REASON for the SEASON.

The day Christmas died?

In 1918, things were happening in the world that were far, far worse than the Sandy Hook murders. Yet Amanda Kennedy was not about to declare Christmas dead. Instead, she expressed an optimistic view by co-writing the song Star of the East, a song that seems very appropriate for Christmas, 1918--and 2012.
STAR OF THE EAST

Star of the East, oh Bethlehem's star,
Guiding us on to heaven afar.
Sorrow and grief are lulled by thy light.
Thou hope of each mortal, in death's lonely night

Fearless and tranquil, we look up to Thee,
Knowing thou beam'st through eternity.
Help us to follow where Thou still dost guide
Pilgrims of earth so wise.

Oh star that leads to God above.
Whose rays are peace, and joy, and love.
Watch o'er us still till life hath ceased.
Beam on, bright star, sweet Bethlehem’s star.

Star of the East, thou hope of the soul.
While round us here the dark billows roll.
Lead us from sin to glory afar,
Oh, star of the East, thou sweet Bethlehem's star.
