  • Finding lasting peace when asking “Why?”

    Heinous. Vicious. Atrocious.
    None of those adjectives come close to describing the murder of 20 defenseless first-graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.
    Incomprehensible.
    We simply can’t fathom how someone could be so sick, so deranged to force his way into an elementary school, the home of bright eyes, toothless smiles and looks of wonder.

    How could anyone methodically aim a gun at such innocence and pull a trigger? Not just once, but, according to reports, multiple times.

    Sin is rampant today and the devil is on the move.
