I'm not the best Catholic, but I went to church today and I prayed for the victims and families of the senseless violence and school tragedy that happened at Sandy Hook in Newtown, Connecticut, on Friday. Nothing can be said that will bring the dead back or provide solace to the families of those lost, but let's make sure that our words are not just that of political debate during this time of sadness. Instead, let our words be that of comfort for the mourning, remembrance, and resolution. Pray for the souls of the children and teachers that died. Pray that this type of tragedy never happens again. Pray that the people assigned with the task of addressing this problem make the right decisions. Until you are elected into office, your political opinion about the issue doesn't make a difference. If you're not a politician, then save it for the polls. However, you are one thing... You are human. Your posts would be better served if the message was to show love and support for your fellow man. As I said before, I'm not the best Catholic, but I'll be praying. I'll be praying for answers, not posting solutions. My sincerest sympathies to all of those impacted by this tragedy. May God bless each and every one of you.
