In our sorrow, we must draw upon our faith in the Lord

To The Editor:

Evil has yet again reared its ugly head. Anyone with a soul has been brought to tears by this latest domestic act of terrorism in our schools.

Although our country has faced yet another tragedy, we must pray, move forward after mourning in our own way to show our respects to those lost.

Life will always have its tragedies. as I have known all too well when I lost my only sister when she was  3 years old. Then, six years later, I lost my best friend/brother when I was 13 and he was 18.

I’m sure most of us have experienced a loss of a loved one and, yet, we always pull away from it a bit stronger. But the reality of it all is that the pain may fade a bit, but will always still be there for the remainder of our days.

Those children that survived this act of terrorism will forever be changed and our thoughts and prayers go out to them and their families.

Out of bad, we can make something good; this could be a pivotal point in our country as we turn this tragedy into a desperately needed spiritual awakening. At least that’s what I’m praying for.

As a parent of five children and soon to be six, words cannot express the sorrow I have for the loss of those children, but in that sorrow my faith remains with the Lord.
