Pray for the sorry souls on earth

Twenty angels were untimely called to their deserved place in heaven Dec. 14 because of the actions by some cowardly young person who took out his warped frustrations on the young, the totally innocent and defenseless children. I have not shed as many tears since the Our Lady of the Angels school fire on Dec. 1, 1958, when 92 angels were sent heavenly. The fire, by all accounts, was an accident.

This act was willful and demented.

Much will now be said about gun control. Taking away the guns from Americans will not solve the everyday occurrence of useless killings. Gun control cannot heal the sick and twisted mind.

The very next day, in China where no guns are allowed to be owned or carried by citizens, a Chinese man stabbed 21 children at a school. Would that mean they have to take away knives from everyone as well in order to solve the problem of needless killings? Will the taking away of our guns prohibit the gang bangers on the streets of Chicago to stop the killing of innocent children who seek merely to have a normal life but happen to live in a terrible gang-infested neighborhood?

There are the sick who need to be treated and their malady discovered by professionals before they strike at the innocent. When you consider that at the very start of our human race on this plant, and in the very first generation, a man killed his brother. What a great start for humanity, and just another sad day in the history of our existence where man cannot get along with his fellow man.

Ask those 20 angels who have just reached their place in the heavens to pray for the sorry souls here in Earth.
