I am once again trying to wrap my head around the news of another school shooting. In the blink of an eye, another six people are gone, three of them children. As a mom, these constant shootings terrify me. Those could be my kids. I don’t think anyone wants this to continue happening, but yet it does. And I wonder, why can we not find some common ground and make this stop?
I’m scared and angry.
They were too young to join you just yet.
The others should still be here too.
we fail to find the courage
to join together
and find a way to make it stop.
Surely, there is a way.
Lord, give us the faith to put
our differences aside
and work with others
to discover what that way is.
Write lawmakers and encourage them to work together to find a reasonable solution to address these situations.
