Newtown Gives us Much to Consider

Truth is the breakdown of the family. Adam's parent were divorced and while Mom is getting raked over in the coal by the press, I haven't heard anything about the Dad except he lives in N.J. These 2 parents knew the boy the best, and instead of being partners to help him, who knows what the added stress was due to divorce. Was the divorce because of Adam? Did one parent want to discipline the little monster while the other parent cuddled him? Did Adam feel responsible for breaking up his own family? SO many questions. What was Adam's trigger? He apparently believed he had to die. What made him believe he had to take others with him?

Allegedly the mother was moving to have him possibly committed. She was also pressuring him to get a job and move out of the house. This, in his mind, made him feel rejected by his own mother, that she didn't want him and was trying to get rid of him - and loved the school and the kids she assisted with more than she loved him - hence his murderous spree to kill her as well as the children he felt she loved more than him.

Life is rife with problems and struggles yet most create one problem from another not knowing the wisdom of a loving God. It might be a combination of many things like it usually is. However, to the extent that I have caused myself and anyone else grief by not knowing and listening and understanding God, I am sorry and am doing much better now.

Nothing strikes deeper to the heart than the loss of children. It's one more reason why the horror in Newtown, Conn., has hurt our nation so badly.

I do not believe there is any human suffering like the suffering of a parent who loses a child.

I know it from personal experience. I lost a beautiful, young teenage daughter almost 10 years ago, and the pain never goes away.

When tragedy strikes, we want to do something. It is a natural human instinct that when we suffer, we conclude it is because something is broken and to want...
