Tragedy.   1 comment

We live in a terrifying world.  As a parent and a teacher I cannot imagine the sadness or fear that the community of Newton, CT, and particularly the Sandy Hook Elementary campus, are going through right now.  My heart is breaking for them, and I am sick to my stomach over this senseless tragedy.

I simply cannot understand what would ever cause a person to commit an act as  horrendous as this.  How Satan can have such a stronghold on an individuals life as to lead them to essentially massacre young children at their school is beyond me.    One of my dear friends put it this way, “We can’t understand the hopelessness that people feel without Christ… that would lead them to think this is their only choice…”, and I can’t think of better words to describe this situation.  The love of our Savior is something that we all desperately need, and those without the Father’s love feel lost, Satan sneaks in and takes control of their lives.

I also cannot understand how we miss signs that things such as this are in the works.  My district has spent time this year dealing with educating students and staff members on topics such as bullying, suicide and texting while driving.  We have been teaching ourselves and our students to look for signs of potential danger, to ones self or to others, and discussing ways to prevent and reach out to those in need.  But, how do we see signs in grown adults?  As of this post, 27 people, many young children, have been confirmed dead, and then numbers continue to rise.  I saw in one report that one of the shooters is thought to be the father of children who attend the school.  HOW CAN SOMEONE DO THIS!  How could a parent destroy the lives of so many?

Please pray for those involved and affected by this tragedy.  Every student, teacher and staff member at that school has been affected for the rest of their lives.  Their sense of safety has been shattered, and the pieces will be difficult to put back together.  Pray for the families of the those lost, that God grants them some peace and comforts them in their hours of need.  Pray also for the community as a whole, as they have all been affected by this senseless tragedy.
