I Found This to be Very Beautiful and Sweet.... so much said in the words of this little boy.... I wanted to make sure all the DU folks had a chance to see this if they already haven't

The funeral for 6-year-old Sandy Hook shooting victim Jack Pinto was held on Monday in Newtown, Conn. Following the service, USA Today reporter Yamiche Alcindor tweeted this photo -- a letter to Jack from his best friend, John, with pictures of the boys.

Jack Was Buried on Monday along with Noah Pozner, who was also 6

Jack, You are my best friend.

We had fun together.

I will miss you.

I will talk to you in my prayers.

I love you Jack.

Love, John

2. Devastating.

They shouldn't have to face this kind of thing at such a tender age.

6. Or at all...

nobody should ever have to face this.... sometimes with the kids tough, I think they understand things in an unfiltered way and they get to the point of what things really mean to them much faster tan older folks...

He was his friend, he will miss him and he will pray for him.... any adult couldn't have said it any better in a thousand words...

Kids are amazing

3. I'm just sad this 6 year old wasn't armed with 9mm

 

So he could save his friend from the killer.

The root cause here is gun free zones.

America demands compulsory target practice after milk and cookies and before nap time.

4. I'm glad you posted it again. I had missed it.

It is beautiful, but painful at the same time. It's going to be one of those bittersweet memories that will stick with me for the rest of my life.
