Soon, people will rush forward with reasons why this happened and solutions to prevent it from happening again. There will be those who will point out how relatively rare these events are when one considers the number of students and number of schools. That will not matter for the people of Newtown. The reasons and solutions are too late. And as far as the rarity of the event; it's 100% for the people of Newtown.
Right now, these people need something I can't give them. They need comfort and I don't know how one is comforted when a child is lost in such a senseless tragedy. I don't know how to say things are going to be okay. I don't know how to tell them that things are going to get better. None of that makes sense to me either.
So, I pray to the Almighty as He has received these little children into His presence that He will give comfort to these families who are feeling the greatest loss they can know. I don't know how He will be able to do this. But He is God and He can do what I consider as impossible.
I know Satan appears to have had a great victory yesterday. I believe that God will defeat him. Satan has always sought to steal, kill and destroy. Right now, it looks like Satan is winning.
So, I take my Lord's lead when I consider the pain of the people of Newtown. I weep as He wept for those who had lost a loved one.
He must also be weeping with them now.
