We recently had a tragic incident with the school shooting. What do our leaders do? They attack the tool not the cause. A gun is a tool; it can be used to provide food, as a sport, target shooting, for protection, for the protection of the country and, yes, as a tool of destruction, as in the school shooting.

During my lifetime, I have seen prayer and God taken out of the schools and the Ten Commandments banned from all public areas. I think one of them says: “Thou Shall not Kill.”

Maybe we have pushed God so far out of our lives that the devil has moved in on our country. I don’t know just maybe.
