My heart is heavy as I write this post. The news of the tragedy in Connecticut is devastating. Why would someone walk into a school and kill innocent children? Those children had done nothing to that gunman. They were just going about their day with Christmas on their minds and innocence in their heart.
When I picked my son up at school today the first thing he said was “Mama why?” How do you explain to your child the reasons behind someone insane? How do you explain the senseless murder of children? I put my hand on his and told him that unfortunately in this world there are really bad people. He said their school was on lock down today. It made me feel good that his school was being proactive even as far away as we are. At least knowing his school is taking measures to keep them safe makes me feel somewhat good, but those parents in Conn. sent their children to school this morning thinking they were safe too.
As we go about our lives this weekend, take a moment to say a prayer for the children and adults who lost their lives. Also say a prayer for the parents who have to bury their children before Christmas. I can’t even imagine to understand how they must feel tonight. I grieve for them and pray that one day maybe they can come to grips, but I doubt they ever will. I don’t think I could. The anger is so real in my heart and I’m not the type of person that gets angry easy, but when you mess with children it angers me.
Please hug your children and thank God they’re safe. I know that’s what I did.
May God Bless you and your family!
One thought on “Why is all I can say?”
I was wondering the same thing today morning during breakfast and I asked my husband about it. I wondered if people went through a temporary insanity phase when they shot anyone who was in their vicinity. Or is it that suddenly they snap at something, reach an edge and can’t control themselves? If I were not so much of a cynic of human behaviour, I’d even say that as we get deeper into this century we see more madness from within coming out- like evil just waiting to pounce on a person who is weak. I am not thinking very clearly at this time but once I get my thoughts in order, I’m sure I’d be able to write more clearly.
