sometimes I really dislike having a newspage as my home site when I turn on the internet...
today is one of those days.
In Virginia today, at a community college, at least 22 people (possibly more) have been shot dead in the case of another deadly school shooting (according to the CBC). As I read it, I couldn't help but enter into that horrific spot, that place of hearing gunshots resonate through the building, 30 to 40 times...the sound of screaming...it's all too graphic for me, and nearly brings me to tears.
What's going on in our minds these days? That's where it starts.
I pray for these families that had to wake up this morning to a phone call, or a police officer, or, worse yet, the news, telling them their child (or husband or wife or father or mother or daughter or brother)... has been murdered.
It's times like these that the thought of having no God, having no order, is far scarier than having a God who seems to "let these things happen."
