Across the nation, the flags are flying at half, a somber reminder of the horrific school shooting in Connecticut last Friday. Amid the calls for more prayer, more gun control and tighter school security, there is an anguished cry rising up: Why, God? Why did this happen to innocents? It’s not a new cry; we’ve all heard it – perhaps even voiced it – after some of the most heinous crimes, terrorist acts and natural disasters have taken lives.

Today we’re giving you a space to voice what you’re feeling in the aftermath.

One Response to Why, God?

    I still feel bad about what happened in Connecticut but I don't feel that video games is the cause to the problems of shootings. I do believe that it's more of a parents fault then the video games fault the reason i say that is because its the parents who buy them the video games to play with out now what the games are about. Know me I play a lot of different type of video games i don't want to go around hurting people because I play them type of games.

    Know I do think that the parents who let there kids play rated M games when they are way to young to tell the difference between what is right and wrong are the problem. It's not the kids fault that the parents let them play games like that and its not the games fault either it's the parents.

    But in the ends its not just the parents fault it is a hole mix of circumstances that cause things like this to happen putting the blame on one thing is wrong you don't wake up one morning and decide your going to do something like this. Its a hole list of things that lead up to this and people need to realize that even if you put more gun controls an stop making Violent video game, movies, TV shows, and music this kind of stuff will still happen if you don't get the the root of the problem and that is that people don't have any morals anymore and have fallen away from God, and have stopped obeying Jesus. It is the thing that happens when county's don't have God as there focus it happened all through the old testament not only to other country's, but it also happened to Israel when they choose to stop fallowing God and his word. Consequences of there sin always happened because they were sinning God uses these consequences to lead his people back to him that is the one thing I pray happens out of this hole thing that has happened.
