Last Rights

This past Friday, the 21st, a nationwide moment of silence was held for the 26 victims of the Newtown, Connecticut school shootings.  I don’t have children and I’ve never been a victim of a violent crime.  Thus, I can only imagine the extraordinary pain the victims’ families must be enduring right now, especially the parents of the 20 kids murdered in that rampage.  Who could believe in a god after a massacre like this?
