There are no words to say as 27 people lost their lives in an elementary school shooting – an elementary school shooting – in Connecticut today. I will not engage in the predictable debate over gun control that is almost certain to follow this tragedy. I will not attempt to offer commentary. I will simply pray that we may be the ones who create a civilization of love where we do not use violence to “solve” our problems, that we may become instruments of peace, that we may simply learn to love one another.
God help us all.
