Our country once again mourns the senseless killing of innocent lives. What has become of this nation? How can this be?
The root cause is a change in our culture. The value of each unique person, the respect for the dignity of life has become less. Abortion is also the taking of innocent lives.
Violence begets violence. There is also an increase in bullying in schools, domestic violence, child abuse and teen suicide. We have changed in the last 60 years. Back then it was unthinkable anyone would open fire, for example, on a school full of young children.
I give up on politics being the answer. Rather the answer is prayer. Do we find the time to pray? If not, why not?
