It was a sunny morning in Newtown, Connecticut. It’s Friday, the last day of school before the weekend. Mother’s are waking their children to get ready for school. Maybe as they ate breakfast they discussed happy plans for the weekend. The Moms and Dads kissed and hugged their kiddies and sent them off to school. Some for the last time.
No one knows yet what transpired. All we know is that 20 babies are dead, shot by a person who had to be a total lunatic. What was on his mind? What was he thinking? Why a classroom full of babies? We may never know.
These children cannot have died in vain. Every American needs to pray for the victims, their families, the people who have to deal with the bodies of the babies. Americans need to pray for ourselves and our country.
For the next while, do a good deed at least once per day. Help your neighbor. Put an extra dollar in the Salvation Army bucket. Say something nice to somebody. Call a loved one you haven’t spoken to in awhile. Tell all those around you that you love them. Fill your hearts with grace and spread it far and wide. Let something good come from this horrible, senseless tragedy. Remember those babies with goodness in your hearts.
