Tragedy in Connecticut
“WE ARE A NATION FULL OF INNOCENT BLOOD”
Hosea 4:2 “Bloodshed pursues bloodshed.”
Today, less than two weeks from Christmas, the unthinkable
happened in a small, close -knit picturesque Connecticut town.
Evil came to this community and wrecked havoc. A massacre of the
innocents took place where children, teachers, and their trusting
parents felt safe. That trust was violated in the most grotesque way by
a deluded young man on a mission to kill babies.
Not to take from the recent tragedy, but how many more mass
shootings will it take for us to connect the dots on child killing? Yes,
this was horrible; the most vulnerable and innocent were cut down in a
classroom; they were like lambs being led to their slaughter, trapped in
terror and in their Christmas decorated room. There was no one to defend
them… just like those babies scheduled to be slaughtered at the local
Yes, this kind of thing happens everyday across our nation inside
abortion facilities; innocent babies are massacred…legally. The only
difference between the carnage in malls, classrooms, theaters, and
abortion clinics is the age and location of the human victims. They are
all innocent, but someone else chooses to end their lives. And where was
God? Remember, we kicked Him out of the schools. We have drifted so far
from the Judeo-Christian teachings our nation was founded on that there
is no fear of our consequences, or of God.
But I ask you, could there be a connection between the bloodshed
we have allowed to be shed in the womb and what we see in these mass
mall and school shootings? Could it be possible that when we have
removed God from every part of our lives we have allowed the devil in?
Our nation has been entrenched for over 39 years in bloodshed-on-demand.
What then should society expect? When you sow bloodshed in the womb, you
will reap it in the streets. This is what we are reaping. We have become
a savage nation. We allow the senseless murder of pre-born children
inside abortion clinics; we shouldn’t be surprised when these mass
shootings happen. In fact, we should be prepared for more.
What it will take for us to connect the dots: murder in the womb
leads to murder in a classroom; lethal bullets versus curettes and
suction hoses. There is no difference; both kill.
As reported by media, one little girl who was murdered in the
room was preparing for and looking forward to her first communion.
Another kindergartener was excited to play the angel in the Christmas
play scheduled for this Tuesday. These innocent children and their
teachers had their whole lives to look forward to. It was violently
taken from them. I cannot imagine the horror that those innocent babies
and the teachers felt and saw in the last moments of their lives, the
same horror that innocent babies scheduled to be aborted feel inside
their mothers’ wombs, which is supposed to be the safest place.
How cold and calculated can people be? First Columbine, then the
Amish schoolhouse, VA Tech, the Oregon mall, an Arizona Congressional
rally, Northern Illinois University, now a Connecticut elementary
school. According to police reports, a man killed his mother at home
then forced his way into the elementary school where his mother taught,
massacring approximately twenty children and six teachers. He then took
the coward’s way out and turned the gun on himself.
There is no police force big enough to protect our nation from
the evil within. Our hearts are broken; there are no words to soothe the
grieved. We are sorry, so sorry that there is so much violence and
disrespect for life in our nation; this is indeed a heart issue. We have
to change the hearts of our nation, not laws, if we are ever going to
stop these senseless killings.
I woke up this morning to cold rain; it set the mood to the heavy
heart we have felt for the past 18 hours. I got ready to go to the
abortion clinic where I am every Saturday. I couldn’t even listen to
the festive Christmas music because I cannot imagine the pain of having
to bury a child that was murdered, let alone twenty at this special time
of year. It was only after I stood for hours at the abortion mill
pleading and begging on behalf of those innocent babies scheduled to be
slaughtered today inside the abortion mill, that the heaviness lifted
somewhat when we were able to connect the dots to those parents that
were contemplating their child’s fate and only by the grace of God
that were we able to convince at different times, two abortion-minded
moms not to go through with their child’s execution. Only then did I
feel like I wasn’t helpless, that I was able to do something to
prevent more murders. I can relate to the first responders at the crime
We were joyous with the two precious babies that were saved
through our efforts, but there is so much more that this nation needs to
be doing to stop the senseless murder of innocent children in and out of
the womb. We need to return to a culture of life, or we are doomed.
Please keep the situation in your prayers.
