My friend Stan-the-Lutheran-minister posted this elsewhere.

Gracious God, heavenly Father, You alone know all the shock and sorrow of the unfolding events of this day at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Mercifully embrace the frightened in Your love, empower the weak with Your strength, and restrain the wicked by Your might. We commend to Your keeping all who work to bring rescue and relief. Give them courage in danger, skill in difficulty, and compassion in service. Sustain them with bodily strength and calmness especially as they attend to those families who mourn the loss of loved ones; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

My first encounter with this tragedy was through smart-phone news headlines. They are making this a politicized issue, demanding "gun control."

As if any sort of law could have prevented this tragedy, or the next one. Or previous ones, like the gay dance club in Florida, or the country music festival in Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, my heart is simply breaking for the families of those who lost children and friends in this senseless violence.





Life is so good in America. Why can't we just appreciate these blessings?
