This year our little Stinner Family has been very blessed. Our children are doing well in school, we are all happy and healthy and we are expanding our business. So WHY is the world falling apart? Day after day there are reports of shootings, stabbings and crimes against children. I almost can't bare to watch the news any longer.
Last week the unspeakable happened...20 children and 7 adults guned down at school. Why? This is the question I keep asking myself. Has the world gone mad? So many news agencies reported that the gunman had Aspergers, a form of Autism. It set off a fire storm of acusations against those struggling with Autism. My little Grif is the most gentle child you can imagine, he would never hurt a fly. So blaming this senseless rampage on human beings with a learning disability is discrimination. I would hope that most people would educate themselves before judging.
A few days before Christmas a crazy man started fires then started murdering the firefighters who came to the rescue. Senseless! A man dressed as Batman unloading at a movie theatre. Disgusting! A masacre at a Military base. A Travesty!
What can we do as parents to prepare our children for the crazy world we live in? I ask this question every day. All I can do is pray. Pray that I teach them right from wrong and ask God to protect them when I can not.
During this season pray for those that have been lost to these unspeakable acts and protect your children the best you can.
