A Light in the Darkness

The earth seems to have dimmed since Friday when 20 innocent souls were ripped from this life too soon. Many of us have cried tears of anguish. Many of us have tried to contain our anger. Many of us have thought about never letting our babies out of our sights again. Most of us are strangers to these poor families, and yet we are not. A collective grief has united us as brothers and sisters. Through this darkness, we have reached out to grasp one another’s hands. And in these acts of kindness, that light slowly returns to chase away the darkness. It is Christ’s light, shining though us. We cannot destroy darkness with guns. We cannot erase it with hate and anger. We can only destroy darkness by letting God’s love flow through us and between us. With God’s love, there is no room for evil and hatred.

  1. Such a tragedy. I try to avoid the news right now, to avoid having to face this over and over again.
