Guns taking our youth
It's getting to be awful in the world today. Young folk using guns and killing each other. We as older parents and grandparents have become so very fearful for our youth. Recently a gunman went in a dance club with an assault weapon and shot up the place, killing and injuring our young people, where they were minding their own business, dancing, partying and enjoying themselves. Many were students, everyday workers never to breathe life again. All some mothers child, some brothers sibling, somebody's love one. Not to be seen again or in critical condition or traumatized to no end! In Orlando, FL. A place where happiness takes place, where infants on up to seniors smile all day long! Where you constantly hear laughter, babies crying, folk screaming joyously on roller coasters. Disney is a place where seniors like to retire simply because the weather is good and there's constant fun to be had. But hey some person who evidently sucks on lemons all day, and festers in his heart a hate that passes all understanding, came to a happy place to stop it from happening. I am so sadden by this situation and all situations that involve guns and our youth! It gives us no peace individually or as a people to see this happening. You can't just bury your head in the sand (although I'd like to), without worrying about yourself and your family.
My prayer is: Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification..Romans 14:19
