Attack on children in Pakistan

More than 126 people, most of them children, have been killed after a group of gunmen stormed an army-run school in the Pakistani city of Peshawar.

The number of the injured is quickly rising.. As is the casualty count of the dead..

The vast majority of those dead are
Children.

This from the Associated Press dispatch only minutes prior to this post being written:
The overwhelming majority of the victims were students at the army public school, which has children and teenagers in grades 1-10.

The horrific violence, carried out by a relatively small number of militants from the Tehreek-e-Taliban group, a Pakistani militant group trying to overthrow the government, also sent dozens of wounded flooding into local hospitals as terrified parents searched for their children.

Sone children were shot execution style one by one, according to witnesses who escaped..

Government troops arrived at the school and exchanged gunfire.. At least 500 were in the school when large explosions were heard..

There are fears the numbers of dead and injured are not done rising..

This is a developing story..

The Sydney siege was yesterday's nightmare before Christmas.. Today's is much more violent and deadly..

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …
