I had something else in mind for my post this week, but the atrocious gun violence in Seattle recently has made that seem pretty inconsequential. Seven people have been shot this week and five of them have been killed. My prayers go out to the victims in the hospital and to all of their families.
It boggles my mind that people will open fire in a public place to take the lives of other human beings. Not to say it is good to shoot someone in another location, but so many people get caught in the fray, are in the wrong place at the wrong time, and are victims to this senseless violence.
We only have a short time on this earth, why do selfish people have to shorten it? Life is a gift and we need to treat it as such. If you are in a dark place and want to hurt yourself or others, there are people to help you, just ask.
I pray you are all safe and surrounded by the ones you love.
