I am angry!

Tonight I confess that I am angry. Last night a young man who had gone to school with my daughter was shot and killed. I did not know this young man but my daughter did. This is not why I am angry though. The shooting happened across the street from where I live and recently the man who had shot the young man had beaten his wife and she had to go to the hospital. The woman did not press charges against him so he wait not arrested.

Now a mother and father have lost their son. The man who killed him has not yet been found. I do not know how long he can hide and who may be helping him. I only know that my heart breaks for the young man’s family and I am angry that a man who should have already been in jail for domestic violence has taken the life of someone who did not get a chance to live his life.

Please pray for his family.

  1. Wow, that’s tragic. Yes, your anger is not inappropriate but right. Sadly, we live in a depraved world. It’s all around us, even in us. We, nevertheless, have hope that one day all will be changed when Christ rules and reign. I hope that your daughter’s okay, and that this family finds the comfort that only Christ can give.
