This tragic mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut is a clear indication to me of just how much evil there is in the world and how the devil does not care one single, solitary bit about whom he attacks. It is also an indicator that we as human beings must get our lives together righteously, serve God with love and joy and try with all our strength to elude what is evil, being cautious to avoid the devilâ€™s tricks. To me it is also a sign from God that He can take you at any moment, and it behooves us to be ready.
In spite of Hurricane Issac keeping Carolyn Haines for returning for Luncheon with Books in August, Haines and her newest novel â€śBonefire of the Vanitiesâ€ť were right on schedule Thursday at noon.
â€śI always look forward to coming to West Point. Issac would just not let up and the flooding around Mobile was relentless,â€ť said Haines. â€śIâ€™m really glad to make it here around Christmas. Iâ€™ve been in Columbus at MUW. I had never been to Columbus before and wish I had had more time to explore. With my animals at home I canâ€™t be gone for very long at a time.â€ť
It was heartbreaking to hear of the school shooting in Connecticut that took the lives of 26 people, 20 of whom were children. Adam Lanza is the person who decided that killing these innocent people and then himself was a good idea. All these parents put their children on a school bus or dropped them off at a place they considered safe. School. I take my own girls to West Point High every morning and fully expect to pick them up.
