There are three pictures burned into my mind and spirit now. Three moments. Three children.
Because they are horrific, I simply provide this link so you can choose to see these soul-crushing moments.
I know we somehow can’t find a way to rise above our partisanship on these issues, but my prayer is that some day we CAN rise above and simply fall to our knees and cry out, “Lord, have mercy!”
There are times when we don’t have solutions. There are moments when solutions aren’t the need. They need to come, to be sure. But there are moments when we would SHOULD mourn. We SHOULD weep. We SHOULD cry out in repentance.
Dear GOD, folks, could we not do that in this hour?
