Yesterday's school shooting has left me stunned, sad, and angry. Maybe you feel the same way. The depth of evil displayed there is hard to fathom. Defenseless, unsuspecting kids and adults--all of them someone's son or daughter, brother or sister, or parent. So many precious lives lost, so many others scarred forever.
I'd planned to write about something else today, but then I remembered this post by Crystal Paine, a blogger who shares not only her knowledge about blogging but also her heart with her readers. I really like what she says in her post about what to do when we think we can't make a difference, so I decided to share it with you.
But first, I want you to know that you, my readers, are on my mind right now. I think of you all the time, every day, and about how I might serve you better.
And just as Crystal does at the end of her post, if you are struggling or feeling overwhelmed, I invite you to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and share your struggle with me. I will keep it confidential and will be happy to pray for you, just like I'm praying for the victim's families, the survivors and their families, everyone involved or affected by the school shooting in Florida. That's the best way I know to make a difference in times like these--or any time.
