Our prayers go out to the families of these innocent souls. May God forever hold them in our memory and in our hearts.
God, in these troublesome times it might feel easy for us to put blame on you for allowing such things to happen. Please give us direction in these tragic times, for we know that your will is never going to be understood by our imperfect minds. We ask that you warm the hearts of the victim’s families, they need you now more than ever AMEN!
