On my way home this afternoon I opened my Twitter app up to find this news being broadcast. I heard small bits of news from a CNN satellite broadcast that the gunman was “White, had a 9-11 tattoo, wore a white T-shirt and black pants.” Some of the tweets (Tweets have to be discerned carefully since they are always developing in real time) had stated there was a possibility of more than one shooter but I have not heard this confirmed since more information has come out. I do not have cable tv so what I get is usually pieced together from various online sources and online tv. It takes me longer to process than other blogs. This is obviously a deep tragedy and a senseless act. Many people on social media are expressing angst and hopelessness since this attack has come so closely on the hinges of the Colorado tragedy. There is evil in this world and it’s increasing. I have hope in Jesus Christ who is my savior and the Only Savior. I pray that through this terrible time there will be those in the Sikh community as well as those watching these news broadcasts who cry out to Christ for answers. Jesus Christ is the only way. No one will say that on MSM (Mainstream media) and it’s not politically correct, especially to those who are of another faith who are the victims, but they are also God’s children nonetheless. Christ died for them as well and it would do us good to minister to them and to witness to them. This is not condemnation it is hope. Because I am a Child of the Most High God I have hope and assurance that this world is not my home and that my time here is a vapor. I understand that my sins are forgiven by my Savior’s act of sacrificing himself for me, and the world. If you’re at a loss of words, if you’re heart is aching, if you are wondering why so many bad things are happening, I encourage you to seek out for yourself who Christ is and what He has done to give you hope and to give you eternal salvation.
For those like me who are cable deficient you can watch this live broadcast. I heard there will be a press conference tomorrow at 10am est.
(I know the irony, it’s FOX, those who know my comments on Fox. But if you want to get info –free–it’s a local station.)
