    The recent shooting, by another mid-East immigrant crazy, has made it to the headlines of our nation. Will it stop? Who will be next? And more importantly, do you fear sending your kids and loved ones off each day, not knowing if there will be some crazy with a bag of automatic weapons waiting down the street outside the theater, mall, library, school, or local playground?

    I know there is little else we can do other than trust Him, and be prayed up for the inevitable, but how is all this madness really affecting you?

    We try not to go out for groceries, food, gas, etc. once the sun goes down, but if we do, we are mindful of our surroundings. We are doing that regardless what time of day it is. We avoid some shopping areas in town day or night.

    Nothing has changed with me. Most of the time I forget to lock the doors at night. I feel like nothing is going to happen to me that God does not cause or allow, so why worry?

    We've made our home more secure, but we still live life normally.

    Personally, I am more concerned with the crazies running the country.

    Rate Of U.S. Gun Violence Has Fallen Since 1993, Study Says


    "Firearm-related homicides dropped from 18,253 homicides in 1993 to 11,101 in 2011," according to a report by the federal , "and nonfatal firearm crimes dropped from 1.5 million victimizations in 1993 to 467,300 in 2011.

    There were seven gun homicides per 100,000 people in 1993, the Pew Research study says, which dropped to 3.6 gun deaths in 2010. The study relied in part on data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Some of the same crazies running the streets are the same ones sitting in our congregations on Sunday morning. [​IMG]
