Pray for Tucson

I would like to offer a prayer for all of the families and friends of the victims of the horrible tragedy that occurred last Saturday in Tucson Arizona.  This was the work of a totally deranged person.  At a time like this, we need to resist the knee-jerk reaction to assign blame to this.  There is absolutely no evidence that this had anything do to with politics as some pundits have tried to suggest.  This is not a time to use this horrific incident to get in political points or assign blame to political philosophies that had nothing to do with this.  Unfortunately, there is no way to completely prevent this type of tragedy.  In a country of over 300 million people, there are going to be insane people that will do insane things.  I feel that our focus needs to be on the victims of this event, period. Read the stories of the people involved.  From those that perished to those that exihibited extreme heroism in face of unspeakable terror.  America will survive this and become a stronger nation if we keep this in perspective and continually strive to make this a better place.  Violence is never the answer and we must reject it always.

    I was a long time resident of Tucson and actually met one of the victims 18 years ago. I feel horrible about the events that have taken place in Tucson. I now live in Maricopa County, but this still hit home in a very big way with me, 3 of my children still live in Tucson, I do business in Tucson. My heart aches for John and Roxanne Green, how horrible this must be for them, my heart aches for the other victims and their families. It is absolutely right, the shooter was a deranged individual who had no feeling for anyone, not even himself, this sad event had nota thing to do with politics, Palin, or any other political acts. May God Bless and be with the victims and their families in their time of need.

    One by one, two by two, Show a little Love in all you do..In GODS world, His will be done yet until we Love, we’re all alone. Help a neighbor, lend a hand, show a smile and understand, GOD wants everyone to be full of Love and charity. Don’t hate today, don’t raise your hand, don’t harm yourself don’t spoil this land, Reach out to someone else today show a little Love in every way, One by one , Two by two…….
