I feel such a sense of tragedy and loss today. After the awful events that took place yesterday at Va Tech. My heart is heavy. I want to find answers, but I know there really aren't any. I have a daughter who is a college student.. I can not imagine the pain that the families of those killed and wounded must feel.
I am so very sad.
After I wrote this post this morning. I thought that by perhaps perusing some other blogs I frequent, I could find some solace. I ended up at Phos' Blog and left the following comment, which seems to be my message to myself and to all:
I think we look to God to make everything right as if he had some magical powers. If you believe in God then you may believe that we are made in his image. A God of Love. And yet many turn away from the love..and focus on Hate, racisim, intolerance, war, violence Greed, etc... We keep forgetting that we were born with the gift of free will and the brains to figure out the difference between right and wrong. That is what makes us different from other animals isn't it? Seems some do not bother to take the time or energy to do that.Some days I wonder how long it will be before we just go extinct. We don't seem to be doing such a great job of living in harmony with each other or our planet.God is not the problem..people are.My heart is heavy today..my heart has been heavy since March 2003...all I can do it seems is to try to live a life that reflects the goodness I know is there. The love, forgiveness and tolerance that we were all born with....even in the saddest times.What can I do today that will make the world a better place?~sigh~
