It is hard not to think about the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The papers say that the shooter, Adam Lanza fatally shot twenty children and six adults. I guess that if you are counting bodies, that is what you get. However, he did irreparable damage to a lot more people than that. What about the brothers and sisters of those victims, the parents, the grandparents, etc? We will never know the extent of the damage that Lanza did.
At a time like this, people simply say that God acts in mysterious ways. I guess so. But I have news! We humans act in even more mysterious ways. We still continue to assume that some intelligent deity who allowed that carnage to happen, is worth praying to. We then thank him for calling all of those 6 and 7 year-olds home when they never had a chance to even sample what life has to offer. Who is more nuts, us or Lanza?
If this isn’t nutty, I don’t know what is.
