Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and families of the recent Connecticut shooting incident. We are saddened and grieve that such a thing can happen and sometimes we wonder, “how can God allow this to happen?” Humans, having been given free will, God can only look on with deep concern. But having the “free will” to do bad, we also have the free will to do good and that is what God is looking for… that we can rise up above the evil, despair, confusion, anger and rage. And realize that we are really all one family and that we need to help each other. Let us resolve… to work and pray for forgiveness and peace in this world where we all help each other as one family.
