interfaith prayers to honor the ones who have lost their lives.
ones at the Connecticut shooting today, and we pray for the safety and security
of the ones shaken by the incident, and pray that confidence is stored to the
children and families who are scared.
As Americans we have to come together to mourn and reflect on this tragedy, and
find sustainable solutions. We have to assure our children, or those children
who have no one to assure, that what happened is bad, and we all have to work
to prevent it.
We have to remember that no matter how hurting it is, we cannot blame an
ideology or guns; it is the reckless attitudes of the deranged individuals that
caused the killing. They need help, if we spot such individuals, we need to
report them to find help for them, it is our silence that is bad, and we need
to let our children know that if they see any one behave unusually, they need
to tell the parents or their teachers in school. We have had four incidents
this year in Colorado, Wisconsin, and Illinois and now in Connecticut and we
cannot have our children live in fear.
We pray for peace and kindness to prevail, and seek the divine guidance to
bless us with guidance to prevent these tragedies. At this time, we have to
come together to express our support to the victims and their families.
We have to work on developing a society, where no American has to live in
apprehension, discomfort or fear of the other. We are all in this together.
Join us tomorrow for interfaith prayers, at 3:00 PM at 1210 E. Beltine Road,
Richardson, TX 75081
