5 year olds, Really??!

I am appalled and shocked like everyone else over the school shooting today. I shouldn’t be though. But this shooting has seem to hit me hard in the heart. Children are so innocent and trusting. They are pure. How could anyone want to include them in their rant and shooting spree??? I know this isn’t suppose to make any sense since the shooter would obviously have to be mentally ill. But our minds still tend to try to figure this out. I am grateful this shooter’s mother died today in the aspect that she does not need to see the devastation her son has caused. Not sure if I explained myself correctly in that. I hope that the children who were shot died instantly and felt no pain or suffering. I pray for the children who witnessed any part of this. I cannot imagine what they are feeling or going through at this time. The only thing that makes me feel a little better about this is that those children who died went straight into Jesus’ arms. I do truly believe that. I want to believe they are comforted and loved so much that they do not remember anything before that.

This world sucks! And I think it is just going to get worse. Hang on for the ride. We have no choice but to keep going. Tell your family and friends that you love them and just be ready when its your time. I know I am. I’m not sure why God allows heart-break but I will see the big picture when this is all over. Just pray for all of those involved that were left behind.

As far as the gun aspect….. this to me would be more of a reason to ARM up. I have a gun but if I didn’t I damn sure would get one now. I never want to be nearby and see someone shoot a child in front of me. If guns were made illegal then these losers with mental illness would still find a way to get one. They aren’t exactly following the letter of the law.

Here is the lyrics to the song When the Children Cry by White Lion. So fitting to hear this song today.

“When The Children Cry”

Little child
Dry your crying eyes
How can I explain
The fear you feel inside
‘Cause you were born
Into this evil world
Where man is killing man
And no one knows just whyWhat have we become
Just look what we have done
All that we destroyed
You must build again

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
‘Cause when the children sing
Then the new world begins

Little child
You must show the way
To a better day
For all the young
‘Cause you were born
For the world to see
That we all can live
With love and peace

No more presidents
And all the wars will end
One united world under God

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
‘Cause when the children sing
Then the new world begins

What have we become
Just look what we have done
All that we destroyed
You must build again

No more presidents
And all the wars will end
One united world under God

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
‘Cause when the children sing
The new world begins

What have we become
Just look what we have done
All that we destroyed
You must build again

No more presidents
And all the wars will end
One united world under God

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
‘Cause when the children fight
Let them know it ain’t right
When the children pray
Let them know the way
‘Cause when the children sing
Then the new world begins
