Does Lack of Prayer in Schools Have Anything to do With This Tragedy? 

A national tragedy has occurred, one so gruesome that most of us are still finding it hard to process the series of events that have taken place.  It is difficult to understand why something of this nature happened.  I have noticed some Facebook comments which seem to imply that part of the reason for this tragedy is a lack of prayer in schools.  This kind of thinking to me is absurd.  I don’t for one moment believe those little angels died because there is a lack of prayer in our educational system.

Many of us adults go from day-to-day without stopping to utter a word of prayer or give God thanks for all that He has done for us and yet He still protects us what then say He for those little children?  Jesus said “Suffer the little children to come unto Me and forbid them not for such is the kingdom of heaven”  If He takes care of us undeserving as we are wouldn’t He do so even more for the innocent children?

Instead of trying to look outward for answers we need to start looking inwards.  What is happening in our homes?  Are we raising decent upstanding citizens, or are we creating monsters who will at some point in time create mayhem in society?  The home is where it all begins.  It is the place where babies begin the process which will determine the kind of individuals they will become.  If there is an issue with praying, we should all ask ourselves, is there enough praying in our homes.  We need to stop expecting others to do the job that we should be doing.

Adam Lanza appears to have had a lot of anger and hatred inside him;  most mass murderers seem to do.  It is a kind of hatred so strong that they will lash out and kill innocent people without any provocation on their path  We need to look within our homes and communities and try to identify these people. As parents we need to start paying closer attention to our children.  We need to be able to recognize signs of depression.  If you have a son who display unusual or abnormal anti-social behavior pay close attention.  Does he have friends?  Does he get along well with others?  How does he feel about life?  Does he display signs that he might be unhappy with his life or that he hates his family?  Does he feel that life is hopeless and that nothing will make it right?

If someone knows that someone in their household may be a danger to himself and society they should seek help for that person and notify law-enforcers to get help and advice.  We cannot sit by and wait for another tragedy of this nature to occur. We are all in this together and the problem has to be tackled at the source and that is the individuals in our homes whose behavior serve as a sign that they could be a danger to and  society.
