Why 😭 ???
Why would someone choose to do the unthinkable and murder and injure so many innocent people? Why would they plan so carefully to randomly shoot strangers who were gathered at a music venue? What could have caused someone to be filled with that much anger and rage to do such a thing?
Fifty nine people killed and over 500 injured in the worst mass shooting in recent USA history. The authorities are saying that some of the injured may also succumb to their injuries and pass away too. Lives destroyed and shattered...Why?
There is so much evil in the world. We are seeing it more and more every day. You can't turn on the news or log onto Facebook without seeing man's inhumanity to man. Sick and twisted people are torturing people who do not agree with their ideology , trying to out scream each other and tossing out labels on anyone who does not think the same as they do, rioting and destroying property, setting up roadside bombs to maim and kill ...I just don't understand this level of hatred and evil.
Our world has gone absolutely crazy. It only seems to be getting worse and worse. What scares me is that as a Christian, I know that it will continue to escalate. I am seeing it happen all around me. I worry about my adult children and about my grandchildren. When my husband and I had our kids we could have never imagined what all they would have to deal with in their lifetime. My grandchildren are growing up in very scary world and try as we might, we cannot shield them from all of this. My oldest two grandsons have had to deal with the fear of people who hate and target their daddy, Chris, just for the uniform he wears. When my son Josh was overseas, serving in the Middle East, I lived in constant fear that something would happen to him. I thought some of that fear would go away when he returned stateside. He pointed out to me recently that he is probably even more at risk here due to the uniform he wears also. Our baby grandson Steven, a happy little guy, will all too soon realize that there is evil in the world. My heart aches knowing that he, like his cousins, will have times where they are fearful for the lives of those they love and maybe even their own.
I know we are living in the last days. I know things will get worse. All I can do is pray and try to speak and show love to others while the world around me seems to be going insane.
