    Sandy Hook School Girl Plays Dead, Survives Elementary Shooting; Pastor Jim Solomon Recounts Story (VIDEO)

    So much courage from the adults who tried so hard to help, to save the children. And, now this - a little girl who played dead.

    There is just no end to this horror.

    And it will continue to happen until we protect our children.

    Hard to imagine what they have to deal with now. How can they understand what adults don't? Its impossible for any of us to understand little babies with "multiple" gun shots because the shooter had a semi-automatic/30 round magazine.

    And, on the other side of the world, little Chinese babies having to cope with (single) non-lethal knife wounds. Those children are suffering too but at least they get to live.

    Will that little girl ever have a normal life after enduring that?

    For as long as America clings to its gun culture, this will continue to happen. More guns won't solve the problem - it will make it worse, and I guess you would want to solve that problem with yet more guns.
