Yesterday was a tragic day for our nation when a 20-year-old young man allegedly entered an elementary school and shot and killed 27 people. (He was also killed in the rampage but I’m not sure if he killed himself or was killed by someone else.) Most of those killed were 10 years old and younger. He is also reported to have killed his mother.
Words fail us because our minds cannot grasp the insanity of this kind of killing.
One of my daughters posted her thoughts on her Facebook that I think should cause our nation to stop and consider the real implications of this tragedy. Human life is no longer regarded as sacred so why should we be so shocked when someone takes innocent lives to express his own emotions, but applaud expectant parents who do the same in abortion clinics?
All life is sacred. All of our children are innocent, regardless of whether they are in the womb or in the fourth grade in school.
