We Americans are so busy. We are time poor. Let us take a moment to let our souls catch up to our bodies, to reflect and to pray:

Nine people were killed in church by a man with a gun given to him by his uncle for his birthday. He had several magazines worth of bullets.  (Silence.)

A five year old child was saved by playing dead. This happened in the United States of America in 2015. (silence)

Gun companies have made record profits since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012. (Silence)

In the State of the Union Address in January 2013, the President, referring to the Sandy Hook massacre, shouted several times “they deserve a vote. ” Congress has done nothing. (Silence)

Over 30,000 people a year die from gun violence in the USA every year. (Silence)

“With God, all things are possible.” Matthew 19: 26. (silence)
