On 14 December 2012, a tragedy occurred in Connecticut that resulted in senseless mass murder. Among the dead are twenty children.
Elementary school-aged children.
There is no way to describe the the sorrow of such a tragedy. It is very difficult to make sense of this.
We have endured mass shootings in our Nation’s history. Columbine. Virginia Tech.
But what happened in Connecticut on this day is very hard to deal with.
Murder is a Sin.
It is a Sin and when it involves innocent and defenseless children, it weighs heavily on the heart.
I am not writing this to say what is right or wrong. I am not writing this to state what is good or evil. I am not writing this to make a political statement or drive political agenda.
I am writing this to simply state that this country is going to want action.
I am deeply saddened by what has happened today. You all know my stance on guns. But you all know my character, my morals, and my ethical values.
I do not write this to push what I feel should be done. I do not write this to push what I feel should not be done.
I write this how I see it. Emotional, but unbiased.
Families lost a lot today. This Nation lost a lot today. Humanity lost a lot today.
Angel of God, my guardian dear
to whom God’s love commits me here.
Ever this day be at my side
to light, to guard, to rule and guide.
