It is with horror I read about another young man going on a shooting rampage in a CT elementary school, killing primarily children, and a few adults, including himself.
Lord, have mercy.
And in another story, a small town in Texas adopting needy children. They don't have much, but they share what they have, giving these children not only food and shelter, but love.
Thank you, Lord.
I know I'm going to hug my children a bit longer tonight. Tragedy can strike anywhere, anytime.
