God Was At Marinette High School Last Night…

November 30, 2010

The community is in shock today after the hostage situation here yesterday.  Students are home from school, counselors are talking to anyone who needs help coping, parents are wondering how to keep our kids safe, law enforcement is trying to figure out what happened.  Shock.  Chaos.  Hurt.  Sadness.  Maybe some anger.

Who at?  I’m not sure.  The gunman?  Maybe a little, but he was still just a boy with a lot of hurt and unexpressed feelings  bottled up inside.  But why?  What caused him so much pain?  I keep coming back to the question “how does something like this happen?”  Was there something someone should have seen?  Why didn’t he talk to somebody?

From all accounts he was smart and well-liked.  He wasn’t a troublemaker.  Basically your average 15 year old boy.  What happens to his parents now?  How do they cope? What about his brothers? 

I hope that they lean on God.  Because He was there.  He heard, and He listens.
