The awful events at Newton Sandy Hook Elementary School has shocked people around the world. 28 are dead of which 20 were very young children. I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking that the American gun laws have a lot to answer for both in this tragic event and several others in the last few years. I was impressed by one father who lost a child. In a moving statement he said that we must pray for the victims and their families who are mourning their loss but we should also pray for the perpetrator and his family as well. That father illustrated how the Light of Christ can shine through such dreadful circumstances.
