Corinthians 4: 8-9 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed. Perplexed, but not in despair. Persecuted, but not abandoned. Struck down, but not destroyed.
You read the headlines and the you cannot help but think on these very words. The question of why? Comes to mind. The question of how? Comes to mind. When we see tragedies we tend to hold our love ones closer. We take extra precautions. We are vigilant for awhile. Then some other evil person does something else crazy. The thing to remember EVIL does not look like the stereotypical depiction in the movies. Every time I see crazy stuff that happens, the person looks like your average everyday person. We need to realize that. Stop giving the devil a pass. Somebody knew or saw this guy buy/order all the stuff he ordered be it on the Internet or physically from a store. Because he did not look "suspicious" he was given a pass. Yet a kid coming home from a store with skittles and a soda is shot for nothing. So let's get this right, the devil is busy and he is using everyday average people to do his dirty work.
