One of Brian’s Favorite Quotes
Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.”
— Sir Winston Churchill (1874–1965)

According to a YouTube report an issue of People Magazine was pre-shipped to subscribers before the shooting that was reported to have left 26 people dead on December 14, 2012.
The magazine cover reads, “Newtown Tragedy: Unbearable Loss Enduring Love”
One of the articles inside the publication entitled, “Sandy Hook Elementary Shooting: Stories of Heroism and Love” reads;

I love you,” it read simply in remarkably neat first-grade handwriting.
It was the last note she’d ever receive from him, Scarlett Lewis tearfully tells PEOPLE – and thankfully, she caught it on film.
“I said, ‘Oh, Jess, I have to take a picture of that,’ ” she says. “Thank God.”
This week, PEOPLE tells Jesse’s heartbreaking story and remembers the lost in one of the worst in U.S. history.
Twenty students and six faculty members lost their lives in the massacre on Dec. 14. Among the victims were principal , who lunged at , first-grade teacher , who tried to hide her kids in a closet, and four other brave Sandy Hook Elementary School employees who strained desperately to save the children they loved.
Soto died, her cousin Jim Wiltsie tells PEOPLE, “a hero.”
Thanks to her quick thinking, some of her students were able to flee. But many others – including Jesse – didn’t survive.
Tenacious and strong, like Hochsprung, Jesse also tried to rush the shooter (who also , Nancy Lanza, 52, earlier that day), and in doing so, died.
In emotional interviews, his parents tried to put to words a grief beyond compare.
If this information proves to be accurate the implications are unfathomable.
