There Are No Words For What Happened Today
I have spent nearly thirty years in the business of words. That’s what radio is for the most part. Words broken up by (hopefully) a lot of songs. But, after hearing of the horrific school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut today, there are no words. I don’t know who is responsible and don’t really care. What I do care about is numerous children had their lives taken today.
I am not a radio guy today. I’m a father who is celebrating his son Adam’s 12th birthday. Instead of that joyous occasion, I sit here…my hands nearly shaking in anger over…evil. How else can you explain the blackest of black hearts that it must have taken to commit this…atrocity?
I had a number of things I wanted to accomplish today. And now…I just want to go home and stay there. And pray. I know that evil will not win in the long run. Revelation 20:10 tells me that. But, as a dad, it’s hard to get a grasp on how days like today happen. There just aren’t words for days like today.
