Let's Pray

I cannot help but think about the families of those killed earlier this week at Virginia Tech...each of those thirty-two families, all their neighbors and friends, those who suffered injuries, and the parents of Cho Seung-Hui are all facing pain I can't imagine. Although they can point fingers and try to find reasons behind this senseless killing, ultimately there is no one with whom they can reconcile.

I'd like to ask that you pray for all of those effected by this tragedy. Pray not only for the families of the victims, but for every person who touched Cho's life trying to help. They must be second guessing every interaction, wondering if there was some way they should have known. I can't imagine the guilt they may be feeling...even though they really couldn't have realized it would come to this. Pray for those who's last interaction with someone who died was less than pleasant...those people who wanted to share their love but didn't...those who had to be involved in the clean up...those who have to somehow go on with their lives.

Each one of these precious people needs to find the ability to forgive so they can move forward with their lives. All we can do is pray.
