This picture of the 8-year-old boy killed in the Boston Marathon terror attack is making everyone in the newsroom cry. Parents - are you talking to your children about the deadly explosions? What are you telling them?
Truthfully, I'm telling them not to believe a word you guys print about this tragedy.
Another here—almost certainly a First Communion picture.
When he’s old enough I will tell him that Satan rules this world. We are citizens of Heaven who are temporary legal resident aliens here. We are nevertheless called upon to do good here as much as possible, but we can’t be surprised when Satan’s forces win some battles.
Ah, nice picture of him. :(
I don’t recall writing that politically correct nonsense with my markers when I was in grade school. We should teach children the evils of Islam instead.
The left will use this photo as a rally cry to out law guns, personal protection and total big government control over every aspect of our lives to protect us from ourselves.
Are flags at half-staff around the country at public schools? One wonders what school teachers are telling the kids today...
From the article above...
“The two bombs that killed three people and injured at least 176 at the Boston Marathon on Monday were made from six-liter pressure cookers packed with shards of metal, nails and ball bearings and stashed in black duffel bags, police sources revealed today.
The deadly devices ... have previously been used in terror attacks in Afghanistan and Pakistan and were also used in the foiled Al-Qaeda attack on Times Square in 2010.
I don’t think flags should be at half mast over this.. The leftists have bastardized this symbolic gesture and it’s an affront to every member of our military who has died in combat, or any high level gov’t official who has died. Half mast is NOT appropriate here.
Will this poor young lad’s liberal parents or teachers now convert to conservatism? Or will they lay the blame at the feet of conservatism?
Still and all, heartbreaking. Poor little angel. However, you can't lose your head in emotion, that is what they count on.
From the Daily Mail:
Tragic: Martin Richard, right, is pictured with his family. His mother, Denise, has undergone brain surgery and his six-year-old sister Jane lost a leg in the blast, while his older brother, Henry, 12, escaped injury. They were at marathon to watch his father, Bill, cross the finish line
One Tin Soldier
Listen children to a story that was written long ago
‘bout a kingdom on a mountain and the valley folk below
on the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone
and the valley people swore they’d have it for their very own
Go ahead and hate your neighbor
go ahead and cheat a friend
do it in the name of heaven
justify it in the end
There won’t be any trumpets blowing
come the judgment day
on the bloody morning after
One tin soldier rides away
So the people of the valley sent a message up the hill,
asking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they’d kill.
Came an answer from the kingdom “with our brothers we will share.
All the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there.”
Now the valley cried with anger,”mount your horses, draw your swords”
And they killed the mountain people, so they won their just reward.
Now they stood beside the treasure, on the mountain dark and red.
Turned the stone and looked beneath it; PEACE ON EARTH was all it said.
Thank you to all those fearless people who rushed to help the injured and their families. As these people remember the horror of this event, your concern and kindness will be a comforting memory.
