Right now, I don't want to lock schools down. We can't lock down every public place in the world. I don't want cops at every school. I want less cops in general -- and, yes, you heard that right, too.
Safety created by man is an illusion, at best.
These and a dozen other conversations twirling around the tragedy in Connecticut are trite and, frankly, stupid right now. Yes, this is the tone of chastisement. IF you are a believer, you should be longing for the day when every sword is beaten into a plowshare (see Isaiah 2:4). Seriously, it's our American non-sensibility that loves guns and thinks they equal freedom and protection. But, again, I'm weary of that conversation and it's not the time for it.
Pray, folks. Send words of encouragement, hope and healing to Connecticut. Fast. Weep. Mourn. Hug your children. Pray for your family. Work to turn America to God...
Otherwise, in my un-esteemed opinion...hush.
There is simply too much chatter.
