My prayers and tears are with their surviving loved ones. As a parent I cannot imagine having my children die in such a terrifying and violent manner. It’s a sad generation when sending your elementary-age children to school is a risk, and when being married to an educator inspires fear for their safety.
But “This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope: through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, for His compassions fail not” (Lamentations 3:21-22).
I will be praying for the comfort and healing of all those affected by this tragedy.
