Saying Goodbye to 2021

As the year draws to a close I am most grateful that God has brought us through yet another year. With the COVID-19 pandemic, many did not survive and many familes had to deal with the sorrow of losinng their loved ones. Going into 2022 things are not looking any brighter with the current surge in new case. However we must not give up hope and continue to take whatever steps neccessary to stay safe as we adjust to a new norm. I wish for one and all a brighter and more proserrous 2022. Have a Happy Bew Year!

Parents Accountability is the Right Move

Oxford school shooting: Parents charged with manslaughter

School shootings have become something of a norm in the USA. Nowhere else in the world do they have repeated school shooting without anything been done about it. Thoughts and prayers cannot bring back a dead child but it appears that is all whichever party is in office, has to offer. Holding the parents of Ethan Crumbley’s accountable for the shooting death of four students is the right step moving forward.

Buying a fifteen- year-old a gun as a Christmas gift was irresponsible. After being called to the school twice in response to their son’s bizarre behavior they did nothing about it. Taking the gun and locking it away safely should have been a priority. Instead they argued that he should remain in school fully knowing he had the means to carry out the acts depicted in his drawings. Their lack of responsible parenting has resulted in four families mourning the loss of their children.

I hope this serves as a deterrent to others. You have the right to your second amendment, no on can deny that. However, that right should not infringe on the rights of others to live. A gun is not a toy to gift a child. Be responsible parents and gun holders.

It is Almost the end of the Year

Can you believe it. We are in te month of December. Another year is coming to a close. It seems like just yesterday we were welcoming 2021 and soon we will be saying goodbye to it. Many of us had hoped we would be able to say goodbye to COVID-19 too but alas a new variant is upon us. The normal that we seek to return to is still out of reach. However we must give thanks we are still here and we can only pray that eventually man will win the war against this virus. For now please stay safe.
