“Evil might not prevail in the end, but it certainly doesn’t fail to devastate in its time.” ― Richelle E. Goodrich

hope-on.jpgThere is so much I could write about today; how school is going, my ASL 1 class, my math struggles, my journey searching for a job. There is only one thing that keeps coming to mind though. The tragic events that have been happening in this world. So much death and devastation is going on and it breaks my heart. Just yesterday, a man walked into a LDS church and shot 2 men. The worst part? It happened in front of everyone. When I say everyone, I mean men, women, and children. Of course, there is never a good time to commit murder but, to me, it’s even worse when so many innocent children have to witness it. I was not there, I don’t know the whole story. I can say that it must have been awful. A similar thing happened to a bishop in the ward I am in now. That was in 2010 and I remember hearing about it at seminary because the bishop of the building I went to seminary in was his brother.

I am honestly at a loss of words, how and why would anyone think about doing these things? My heart breaks for the families affected. I pray for comfort. Hug your families tight today, you never know when something tragic will happen. That’s the sad part of today’s world.

To close this post, I will post a couple of articles about yesterday’s shooting as well as the one that happened in 2010 in my ward building. Please pray, send good vibes, or whatever you do. This family needs it.

“When sore trials come upon us, it’s time to deepen our faith in God, to work hard, and to serve others. Then He will heal our broken hearts. He will bestow upon us personal peace and comfort. Those great gifts will not be destroyed, even by death.” —Russell M. Nelson, “Jesus Christ—the Master Healer,” Ensign, Nov. 2005, 87

“There is terrible suffering in our world today. Tragic things happen to good people. God does not cause them, nor does He always prevent them. He does, however, strengthen us and bless us with His peace, through earnest prayer.” —Rex D. Pinegar, “Peace through Prayer,” Ensign, May 1993, 67
