It's so hard for children to comprehend a tragedy like this. I wish you the best of luck with your meeting, it's a tough but very important job. :hearton:
One of my favorite passages from the N.T; shows the special love Christ has for children. I'll use the "Living Bible" translation rather than the "King James", since it's easier for kids to understand (often adults too!) :smile:
Mark 10: 13-16
Once when some mothers were bringing their children to Jesus to bless them, the disciples shooed them away, telling them not to bother Him.
But when Jesus saw what was happening He was very displeased with His disciples and said to them, "Let the
children come to Me, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as they. Don't send them away!
I tell you as seriously as I know that anyone who refuses to come to God as a little child will never be allowed into His Kingdom."
Then He took the children into His arms and placed His hands on their heads and He blessed them.
