God Bless the little souls lost in School Number One in Beslan, Russia on September 1, 2004….at the hands of Islamic fundamentalism.
From Gateway Pundit:
It was the first day of school.
A group of 32 armed Chechen separatists and Islamic fundamentalists, including one Saudinational, took more than 1,200 schoolchildren and adults hostage at School Number One (SNO) in the town of Beslan, North Ossetia-Alania.
Little did the children and parents know what the next 56 hours would bring.
……..Guns, wires, and bombs.
During the siege the terrorists separated young girls from the other children and took them out of the gym to be raped. The Islamists forced their hostages to clean up blood off the floors from the dead children and adults. It was so hot the children were forced to strip off their new clothes. They drank their own urine to stay alive. They were not allowed to move. After the explosions in the gym one boy dragged his younger brother through the halls. He pulled his limp body through a broken window……
…..When the school blew up, one of the children was blown outside.
The child climbed back into the school to be with her teacher. The photographer who took this picture said later that, after she had climbed back in, he never saw her again.
Shortly after that the roof collapsed…………
……The attack ended Sept. 3 when Russian forces stormed the school after explosions were heard inside…..
Watch this touching video if your heart can take it…
The grief those left behind is immense and I’m sure will endure forever.
Tragic. Senseless. Evil acts.
I’ve shed a tear each time I watch the videos and see and read pictures of the events that day. Literally sickens me.
Perhaps its the mom in me….or the sheer grief of those people.
Perhaps its the fear of it happening to our kids…
Imagine our country and our children….could it happen here?
Hardly a week, sometimes even a day, goes by that I don’t remember the children of Beslan when I take my own kids to school.
Pray for those little souls and those left behind to pick up the pieces after such evil.
God rest their little souls.
