I’ve gone back and forth over whether I should write anything about the tragedies in Connecticut and China that occurred last week… How do I respond to the senseless taking of innocent lives? What words of comfort do I offer to those who’ll be left with the physical and mental scars? There simply aren’t enough words to convey the sympathy that I feel for all of those who’ve been touched directly by these tragedies.
I can’t begin to say I understand how the parents feel to lose their children in such a senseless manner, but I do understand the spirit of fear that grips your heart when you’ve been touched by the unimaginable. But God did not give us a spirit of fear, he wants us to face each day with renewed strength and courage. To those who are dealing with grief, fear, and anger I want to say draw strength from your family and friends, accept the kindness of strangers, and lean on the Lord.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. Always.
