Due to the recent, horrific mass killing of twenty young children, at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut USA,  I highly recommend this Bible-based exposition authored by Drs. Akin and Mohler that provides much-needed comfort and encouragement during this grieving time for this senseless, tragic loss of human life.  Also, since this massacre in Connecticut, Dr. Mohler has written an insightful article entitled, "Rachel Weeping for Her Children: The Massacre in Connecticut." (simply click on the two hyperlinked titles to read)

Additionally, six dedicated staff members were also quickly shot dead by the 20-year-old gunman at Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday morning, and then he killed himself as law enforcement personnel entered the building.  Even worse than Hitler, the young shooter killed his own mother with multiple gunshot wounds before going to the school to commit mass murder. Sadly, we live in a very sin-sick world where violent physical death is increasingly commonplace. 

Amid our pain and tears, let us remember that there is no sorrow on earth that heaven cannot heal. U. S. President Barack Obama will attend an interfaith service this evening to comfort and support the Newtown community in their time of need. Truly, life in this world is not always fair. It is helpful to realize that there is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of one small candle. Let us pray for the grieving, victimized families as they desperately try to regain a sense of normalcy after this gruesome massacre.
