Love and Kindness Matter
- Written by Lon Lorton Lon Lorton
It is almost numbing, isn’t it? Way too often there’s another mass shooting with more people killed. It defies rational thought. So we offer up a prayer and file it away in that bulging file “Not Understandable.” Then we move on to read about business or sports or politics.
There’s no one single reason these shootings are happening more often and with greater intensity. You can pick out the people who think they’ve got it all figured out. They’re typically the louder ones in the room.
We are all pretty helpless against isolated, angry, emotionally unstable people bent on doing evil. Some of their weapons include guns and knives and homemade bombs. Most of the conversation among talking heads and politicians have to do with outlawing weapons. I’m hearing very little regarding anyone’s spirituality.
One thing is for sure. No one with healthy relationships, with other people or with God, could do these heinous acts of evil violence. I always think of that person who jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge years ago and lived to tell about it. He said that as he walked to the bridge that morning, if one person had greeted him or even smiled at him, he would not have jumped. Obviously, no one did.
