Once again we are faced with senseless violence. I want to say something like this time it’s against the most innocent among us but that makes it sound like these small children deserved it less than the victims of other random acts of violence. That doesn’t sound right. None of them deserved it.
My tendency to over think things leads me to want to write about the larger picture, about the why and about what this means for the future. That would be wrong. Maybe later. Maybe after Christmas.
Right now instead of thinking and talking about the why, about what the future holds, about what to do, what laws to pass and what measures to take, we should be thinking about, and praying for, the parents who lost children, the children who witnessed this tragedy, the people of that town who have lost innocence and their sense of safety and security.
We need to pray that they will find a way to go on from this. There is no making sense of it. The only peace, the only strength, the only security they will ever find is in Jesus.
