A Long Path Back

Have we become numb?

Ten years ago today, a deranged shooter walked into a Connecticut school and killed 26 souls; 20 children and 6 adults. This one hit close to home for me as it happened about 30 minutes from my hometown, and one of the children killed was the daughter of a former coworker.

In May, another deranged shooter walked into a Texas school and killed 21 people; 19 children and 2 adults.

After ten years, have we learned anything?

Alas, these are not the only school shootings from the past ten years. And I am ashamed to say I have lost track of the others, let alone the many mass shootings at grocery stores, work places, Christmas parties, parades, etc., etc., etc. over this past decades How about you?

Yes, we’ve become NUMB!

All the while, congress, lobbyists, activists, and partisans still argue.

LORD:
Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth, the peace that was meant to be.
With God as our Father, neighbors all are we.
Let us walk with each other in perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me, let this be the moment now.
With every step I take, let this be my solemn vow; to take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me. Amen!
