Some Thoughts on the School Shooting

Briefly, my friends, because I am sure that you, as I, have been inundated with news reports about this tragedy...here are my thoughts on what happened in Connecticut on Friday..

First, I am saddened beyond words about the loss of those precious children..and of the adults, as well.

However, via the Internet, I have watched over and over again the liberal media trying to make sense of it all. I have listened to the outcry of "We need stricter guns laws!" and "We need more police officers at the schools!"

I have seen many, many people reaching out to those families who are grieving.

And I have heard President Obama's attempt to comfort the people of Connecticut. I hope it brought a measure of solace, but at the same time his words were hypocritical (a man who approves of and encourages the murder of thousands of babies every day actually values the lives of others? seriously?).

Where is the outcry over the thousands of innocent babies who are murdered in their mother's wombs because of "convenience"?
Where aren't they broadcasting photos of the post-abortion babies as they lie in 5-gallon buckets, only to be disposed of in the garbage receptacle like rubbish? (I worked as a counselor at a  crisis pregnancy center and saw these photos for myself.)
Where are the people who want to reach out in love to the broken and distraught mothers who have their babies' blood on their hands?

People want to know...when will they figure out the "why" of what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary? There are many blame games being played right now.

Some people blame the gun laws.

Some people blame the schools.

You see, you can blame anyone or anything.

But the fact of the matter is..."The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?" ~ Jeremiah 17:9

There is a cure for all this, my friends.  "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." ~ Romans 5:8
"..that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." ~ Romans 9:10

May God have mercy on our country.

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." ~ Psalm 33:12
