Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †
We should all start our day with this prayer, for something is definitely wrong with this world. Our government is in the process of turning right to wrong, and wrong to right, and then when something like the Connecticut murders happen, they wring their hands and say, ‘I don’t know what is wrong with this world. Why do people do what they do. It must be, we need more gun control!’ I think the trouble is, we are not teaching our children to have self-control over anger, and if they can’t, get them help. Teach them how to use guns and teach them that you never point a weapon at another person unless you intend to use it, then if you do, be prepared for the consequences. And speaking of gun control, that has already started. This morning twitter is abuzz with that, and CNN’s Piers Morgan tweeted: “Another day, another horrific shooting. America’s gun culture has to change. When will America deal with its gun madness?”
This shooting that happened in Newton, Connecticut was a horrible incident caused by a young man with troubles, who started out his day shooting his mother in the face.
One of the articles that I read on this young man said that he had troubles. So why wasn’t he helped? It is probably because the parents couldn’t afford it. So the next big question comes to Barack Obama. You want bigger government….why didn’t you help? The answer is, no matter how big the government is, it will always fail when it comes to things it was never meant to do. And, like most of the things Obama wants government to do, this was one of them. And to think that this is something the government has to do, is pure insanity.
But insanity is what we have people. We have the government doing everything it can, with the media’s help, to change the perception of what is right and what is wrong. Like Representative Steny Hoyer of Maryland the other day trying to tell us that “spending does not cause debt,” which we all know for certain that it does. The sad part is, when he said it…not one person stepped forward and said, “you are wrong!”
But to me, this kind of thinking, which seems to pervade the United States in this time, is part of the problem that makes it so children grow into young men, like Adam Lanza, who then think it is okay to go and kill his mother and then go to a grade school and shoot and kill little kids, before turning the gun on himself. I can tell you now, that he is not in heaven, nor will he ever be.
The mentality that we are raising our children with today I think has a lot to do with actions like Adam took. No one can succeed in things anymore…because it will leave the poor children out who can’t succeed in that way. And this is bull. It causes distress to the children who can’t do what others do.
I was raised with the idea that everyone wasNOT equal in talents. If you couldn’t do one thing, you were to search for your talent and then work on making it great.
Schools and government are changing rules now so that there are not ever winners and there are never losers either. There can be NO hurt feelings or feelings that you weren’t good enough. Children can’t take that kind of failure. Yes they can, if they are taught from the beginning that life is not fair, you get what you sow. Sow the right things and things will be better.
But that is not how we are doing it…..and this is so wrong that it reeks.
We are destroying lives with this kind of thinking. And our government is part and parcel of the problem, along with their bedmates, the media. Sadly, this last election proved that the government is winning with this wrong thinking. We re-elected people that we know are not doing the jobs that they were sent to Washington to do because they said they would do better. What makes us think they will if they haven’t yet and don’t show any signs of doing them? Our Senate hasn’t passed a budget in four years now, and yet we give them another chance to fix the economy?
No wonder the Adam Lanza’s of the world are around to shoot other people. There are no adults in the asylum to keep the order.
Heavenly Father, please help this world to start seeing the wrong direction they are going, and lead them back to You. Give Common Sense and dignity a chance to survive and let people know, that we are not all knowing like You are and we need guidance from You. Help the Families who suffered loss in this senseless tragedy feel Your loving arms around them in this their time of need. May all these little children and the others that were senselessly slain find you waiting for them.
