Across the nation, the flags are flying at half, a somber reminder of the horrific school shooting in Connecticut last Friday. Amid the calls for more prayer, more gun control and tighter school security, there is an anguished cry rising up: Why, God? Why did this happen to innocents? It’s not a new cry; we’ve all heard it – perhaps even voiced it – after some of the most heinous crimes, terrorist acts and natural disasters have taken lives.
Today we’re giving you a space to voice what you’re feeling in the aftermath. Leave your comments below, and do check out our “Related Articles’ section today for the latest news from a faith perspective. In our first segment, we’re joined by Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action, a fierce advocate for marriage, family, life and liberty, about how to make sense of something so senseless, and what some of these proposed fixes could mean for our nation.
The education arm of this organization is Wisconsin Family Council, and here Julaine works to forward Judeo-Christian principles and values by informing citizens, churches and policymakers about important pro-family legislative and cultural issues so they will be inspired to get involved in preserving and strengthening marriage and family in Wisconsin.
