The Sunshine State is Clouded With Pain

The Sunshine State is Clouded With Pain


If you just looked up at the sky in Parkland Fla. this past Valintine's Day you would have seen beautiful blue skies. It looked like a beautiful day in Florida until the gunshots rang out. Like too many times in the recent and not so recent past lives were lost. One life is too many! My Prayers go out to the families, friends and the whole community of Parkland. There are no words that will console you, I'm sorry doesn't cover it. Our only hope is that our prayers will lift you up and help you to get through the tragedy. 

We ask ourselves over and over, "What is this world coming to these days." We get aggravated, afraid, feel hopeless and helpless. There are so many arguments about gun-control and mental illness in our country. People want answers, they want action, they want to understand why and they want something done. We as normal people can never really know what goes on in the mind of someone that would even be contemplating doing something so horrible as these shootings. If we could we would be in the same condition as those shooters. The real frustration comes from the fact no one, not you, not me, not the government or anyone one else knows the answer to this problem. If there is someone with that type of mental defect among us most of the time we don't know until we hear that person has killed. Then there is the gun-control issue. Yes, the military type weapons could be outlawed but most intelligent people know even this will not stop a killer. They will either use another method or get the weapon illegally and therein lies the rub. 

We think we know the answers we don't so what do we do? Apparently, we argue the point which is totally mute.

Bless you and all the lives you touch,

Susan
