It's a cruel, cruel world
I don't even know where to begin.... I woke up this morning to 70 degree weather, and opened my windows, crawled on the couch, and started reading a book, happy as a clam. About 30 minutes later a friend calls, to ask me if I've seen the news.... Evidently sometime around 10:30-11:00 pm last night at least 2 churches were set on fire, and about a half dozen were vandalized by robbery, all of them Baptist churches. The only news stories I can find now are here and here. I have never been so shocked and upset about my community as I have been today. Why would anyone do that? What has all these churches done to people to deserve this? Never in my wildest dreams did I think something like that would happen around here. Needless to say, my heart just wasn't into enjoying to beautiful day ahead of me. Please everyone take a minute and send a prayer or a warm thought to those church families that lost a huge part of them, and to those of us rocked by the loss of security in our neighborhoods.
