A Hartford Courant Editorial: Unimaginable Sorrow

Not again. Here. In a school.

All over Connecticut Friday, people greeted each other with downcast eyes and a few mumbled words. Many cried, churches opened for prayer, events were canceled. Some veteran police officers and news reporters found it hard to keep their composure. Even the president fought back tears while speaking of the deaths.

The day felt, to those who remember it, like the somber, chilly day in 1963 when President John F. Kennedy was shot.

Read it all.

    Reading this story a phrase caught my eye & I wonder if many of our national problems don’t really start there. The phrase is “churches opened for prayer”. I remember when churches were never closed. God have mercy, Christ have mercy, God have mercy.

    Yes, our prayers do go out for everyone involved in this horrendous tragedy, and I know we and they will have to struggle and contend with its causes, but the question must be asked: How much longer, o Lord? How many more innocents must suffer? How many more people have to die before we see to it that things like this don’t happen again? We can’t go on like this!
