'I will talk to you in my prayers': Letter from best friend of 6-year-old Newtown victim Jack Pinto

Heartbreaking.

Jack Pinto, 6, was among the first of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre victims buried on Monday. USA Today reporter Yamiche Alcindor tweeted this photo of a note reportedly written by one of Jack’s little friends.

“Jack, you are my best friend. We had fun together,” wrote John. “I will miss you. I will talk to you in my prayers. I love you Jack.”

    Out of the mouths of babes and infants directly to God’s ears.

    I do hope there is a God.

      There is. He’s waiting to hear from you.

      There is, and I think He’s crying too.

        I know God feels our pain, and so He has such tenderness and compassion towards those who are grieving. But those children- they’re in heaven and happier than they’ve ever been.

        • Lady 12

          Absolutely. Any tears shed, even by God Himself, are not for those children but for the people left behind missing them.

      There is and He is kind and compassionate and is all you have to do is talk to him and He will talk to you. He is grieving over these children and all the other children that died that day, through accidents, starving, aborted, beaten, sick, drowning, killed. He promised in His Word that He would never give you more than you can handle. He is close to the brokenhearted. Phil. 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

      There is Dennis…..In all the sincerity of your heart and in humility, with a true desire to know ask Him to let you know…..He will….

      Remember that God lost His son due to an incomprehensible act of violence as well. He knows how it feels…

      There is a G*d and he knows you by name. He has it written on the palm of his hand and he dances over you with joy.

      • LeRoy

        Why did you spell His name G*d? It isn’t a crime to say GOD. Not yet at least.

        • Retired Chief Petty Officer

          The hebrew tradition does not put vowels in the name of G*d out of reverence for His name.

    • SuperLogic

      You should read the book “Heaven is for real”. It sure helped confirm for me that there really is a heaven. :)

      Father God will give you the faith just step out and recieve it. It is free. This is the best gift you can have this year and always. Salvation.

    • Diana Hedin

      All you have to do is ask Him to make Himself real in your life; He will. He wants us to go to Him and save us from our wicked ways.

    • http://www.facebook.com/brian.mayers.3 Brian Mayers

      The only part of a relationship with God, that He will not supply, is your willing heart–He does ALL the rest. Talk to Him and ask that He reveal Himself to you and show you why so many of us could never turn back from what we have thru Christ. He will not force you and a tiny (mustard seed) faith is plenty to start.

    • c2

      There is. I have personally experienced things that could simply not all be coincidence, having to do with my deceased parents (I don’t like to talk about them online because of the inevitable ugly response from atheists) – I have not one doubt. Not one.

    And to think the Liberal Ghouls with all their hysteria and panic can’t calm down for two seconds to let this little boy and others like him grieve.

    • John P Joyce

      Just to let you know a Republican put this info onto this blog. Not a Liberal Ghouls. Please keep politics out of this. At this time we must come gether to help the president stopping this type of crime.

      • Brenda Travers

        To John Joyce… the only way to stop things like this from happening is to put PRAYER back in school. As you know we already have enough gun control. This nation has experienced devastating moral decline with divorce rates skyrocketing, teen pregnancy, abortion, violent crime SINCE we took prayer out of our schools. That’s fact not opinion.

      • http://johngaltreport.blogspot.com/ John Galt Report

        “…we must come together to help the president stop this type of crime…” Amazing and revealing. First error of conceit is that this type of crime can be stopped. Second error is the the president has the best, or even a viable solution.

      • joe

        Yep…the President can fix everything. I bet after the 20th passes you’ll say the President was responsible for over riding the mayan end of the world disaster because he is a god!

      • Cheryl Walker DeFelice

        How is he going to stop crime? It’s a heart issue, you can’t put laws on morality. Sin is the problem. Instead of looking at the weapon, look at the person and blame the person.

    John is a very astute little guy. Our loved ones are “just on the other side”. We can talk to them and pray to them and pray for them and our angels will look over us, and comfort us because we miss “seeing” . They see us.. and are with us.

    That’s the age of innocence speaking. We left that behind once the world got hold of us and wore us down. It will always be the little child that leads us back to God…

  • allenbarr

    Jesus does love the little children.

  • Janna

    That is precious and beyond heartbreaking. The Lord hears the prayers of the children. I don’t know how all these poor people are handling this. This is too much.

    OMG that was heartbreaking!

    Memory eternal to all these precious ones…young and older.

    And may God grant those remaining the grace to deal with the media vultures and unholy politicians using them for their own twisted goals.

    There is only one Biblical verse appropriate here..

    John 11:35.

  • Guitarstar

    Crushing sadness our children have to go through this loss.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    One gun and this little boys might have been spared this life-altering pain. Fucking infuriating. Motivation to fight for the right to protect people.

  • wayned315

    My heart breaks for those who are gone. We need to remember however those that are calling for stricter laws would have killed all those children before they got to school, in the womb. Life is life, whether just starting or near its end. Unspeakable evil is what we face.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    That is just a gut shot in my stomach, it hurts my soul, god bless these kids.

  • $29520529

    Unfortunately this beautiful letter can not be read in a public school near you, this boy mentioned “prayers” and that would be unacceptable to those who do not believe in God. It would be an act of state sponsored religion. Sorry this if te America you want, by letting others take your religious liberty..

    Matthew 18

    New International Version (NIV)

    18 At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”

    2 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. 3 And he said:“Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.

    The little ones are closer to God than we grown ups are.

    The innocence of children is one reason we should always be protecting them from bloodthirsty types. Always.

  • http://www.facebook.com/cristy.david Cristy Bowman David

    On this day I am confident that GOD
    was was present, heard the prayers of the teachers and students and many lives were spared. The children are aware. We just need to nurture them and be by their side.

    All the efforts of the progressives and atheists has not yet erased God from all the schools.
