Why did the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy happen?

A church Christmas show about Christmas without Christ
last night the Christmas show brought tears to my eyes, just three days after Sandy Hook


Why did the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy happen a few days ago?

I don’t know.

No one can say for sure.

They can’t.

And even if a note is found (and maybe there has), and the killer wrote a reason, are we really going to believe it to be the gospel truth?


And here’s my first take after only three days since the tragedy:

  • may overwhelming love comfort the Families directly and indirectly impacted
  • may the media stop feeding the frenzy and hysteria of negativity, and blame
  • may everyone pause, for longer than we have in years, and look in the mirror
  • may we ask ourselves to be this concerned over the small, unrecognizable, daily tragedies in that mirror
  • may people reading this have the patience to figure out what I just said…

to be continued…
