Newtown School Shooting

Updates on the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting

New Milford closes schools due to threat

|

New Milford public schools are closed today because of unspecified threats.

The New Milford police Department made the announcement on Thursday night, saying that although there had been multiple threats there was no immediate danger to students.

The rumors were investigated and determined to be unsubstantiated, police officials said in a statement, but in light of the mass shootings in Newtown a week ago it was determined to be in the best interests of the community that schools be closed.

    Twenty-six persons
    Were murdered that day
    Not counting the mother
    And the son that had strayed
    A confused young man
    Rained bullets from hell
    Upon the teachers and students
    They fell… woe… they fell
    Twenty young people
    And six adults
    Five year olds
    Six year olds
    Just babies for sure
    Five year olds
    Six year olds
    No more…Lord…no more
    All the little Suns
    have set now and forever
    Neither dawns nor tomorrows
    not ever- not never
    Our hearts are all shattered
    No words could express
    With sadness so great
    who can make sense
    of this horrific event
    The laughter of children
    has come to a cruel abrupt end
    Only sounds of weeping fathers… mothers…
    sisters… brothers…and … friends…
    It will still be Christmas
    in a handful of days
    But the joy’s been diminished
    in the wickedest of ways
    So many gifts wrapped with kisses
    beneath so many decorated trees
    that will never be opened
    by the children with glee
    There can never be closure
    it’s been canceled by pain
    if tears transformed into clouds
    we’d be drowning in rain
    So please suffer not parent
    dare say it’s so hard
    take comfort and remember
    those little innocent victims

    now rest gently
    in the Kingdom of God
