Every Parent's Nightmare

The massacre at Virginia Tech this week is every parent's nightmare. You send your child off to college knowing that the world is a scary place. But you never expect a massacre of students in the classroom and dormitory. I cannot even imagine the grief those parents are feeling.

I also cannot imagine the pain that Cho Seung-Hui's parents are feeling. Not only have they lost their son, they live with the knowledge that he was a deeply disturbed individual who killed 32 people in his final spasm of violence.

Pray for all the families including Cho's parents. What their son did is unimaginable and evil. But they need God's love right now, just like the families of Cho's victims. God can heal the hurt and wrap his arms around them. I pray that the Church of Jesus Christ will embrace these folks and let them know they are loved. They certainly need it.

Come Lord Jesus, Come.
