Other students witnessed this tragedy. I'm grateful CJ did not, but she's heard other children give details. She saw teachers on the floor sobbing. Images that won't be quickly forgotten.
If you will, please pray for the family, the students & the faculty. This is going to be a long road, and we need Jesus to carry us through.
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD
for the display of his splendor.
~Isaiah 61:1-3 (NIV)
