Continuing to remember the families of Newtown, Connecticut. Funeral services begin today for two of the 20 young victims of that elementary school shooting that happened on Friday.   Officials couldn’t say whether Sandy Hook Elementary, located some 60 miles from New York City, would ever reopen.   The district is considering eventually sending surviving Sandy Hook students to a former school building in a neighboring town.  The children killed were aged between 5 and 10 years old. The first funerals planned Monday: Jack Pinto, a 6-year-old New York Giants fan who might be buried in wide receiver Victor Cruz’s jersey, and Noah Pozner, a boy of the same age who liked to figure out how things worked mechanically.   http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2012/December/Grieving-Town-Begins-Funerals-for-Sandy-Hook-Victims/

The President speaking at a memorial service last night in Newtown, Connecticut. Several scripture verses were referenced during his remarks to the small community and the nation including:   2 Corinthians 4: 16-18 (NIV)  –  Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”  

Matthew 19:14 –  “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”         www.christianpost.com/news/we-must-change-obama-says-about-school-shooting-86754/

From ‘middle earth’ to tops at the Box Office:  Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” bringing in over 484 million dollars, making it one of the biggest December movie openings ever.  FYI: Be prepared to use the restroom before the movie starts, cause the film runs at east 3 hours long.http://www.pluggedin.com/movies/intheaters/hobbit-an-unexpected-journey.aspx
