It Was My School


I don’t even know what to say. Things like this don’t happen in my quaint hometown. This isn’t supposed to happen to a school I prided myself on attending as a five year old 19 years ago. My heart is sinking. Friends and family I know are affected. We are all beside ourselves as we feel for those who lost precious loved ones. Times like these make me long even more for that awaited day when Jesus will come riding on His horse and wipe away all our tears.

Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd,

I shall not be in want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures,

he leads me beside quiet waters,

He restores my soul.

He guides me in paths of righteousness

for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk

through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil,

for you are with me;

your rod and your staff,

they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me

in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil;

my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and love will follow me

all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD

    My family and I are so sorry that all this has happened in this school. You all have our sympathy to those children and adults who thier lives were taken. We will continue to pray for you all.
