Thoughts on the events of this past weekend

I haven’t posted about the horrific mass murders that occurred over this past weekend.

What could I say that isn’t being said?

There just aren’t words. We all know that.

And yet “words” are what stoked these mass shootings. Because of unspeakable words, people can do unspeakable things.

Inflammatory words by the media, all media. TV personalities on both sides of the political spectrum. They are all without excuse.

We know that a huge majority of Americans believe in tighter gun controls. The largest majority believe assault weapons should be banned. We should all be praying for congress to act.

Prayer can move mountains AND congress.

It is no wonder, is it, that so many people are feeling anxious these days? I even think that all this violence has proved to be a trigger for depression for some people. Why wouldn’t it?

So if you are one of those for whom this news has just been the last straw, I want to remind you that there is far more good in this world than there is evil.

There is hope that things will change, that soon mass shootings will be a thing of the past.

There is hope because you are in this world.

There is hope because I’m in this world.

As long as there are good people, there is hope that this violence will end. As long as there are good people making their voices heard, this violence will end.

God bless and have a good day.
