No Funnies on this Friday: In the wake of a tragedy
There just isn't anything funny about this Friday. Last night, a 24 year old man walked into a sold out movie theater in Aurora, Colorado and within minutes, 12 people were dead and dozens were injured. My heart is heavy for everyone involved, and the community as a whole. I have seen differing views of this tragedy in regards to media and gun laws, all with valid points. But, we all agree that is was a horrible, senseless act of violence. In the end, no amount of arguing and debating about the what if's will change what has already happened. I do believe in the power of prayer, and more than ever, we need to be praying for the individuals and families affected by this tragedy and the community as they mourn the losses of loved ones and try to make sense of something that will never make sense. Like I said, there just isn't anything funny about this Friday.
