“Evil visited this community today,” thus, sums up the horrific tragedy yesterday in Sandy Hook in Newton, Connecticut. It was like Columbine all over again, but this time, it was more wrenching. Twenty kids, most of them still in kindergarten, massacred in broad daylight. Six more adults were also gunned down in cold blood.
All throughout yesterday, I glued myself to the Internet, television and satellite radio for news updates. As a parent myself, I grieved. As a pastor, I prayed. As a human being, I wondered and asked God for illumination about this tragedy.
