I fell off to sleep last night waiting for more details on the massacre in Binghamton. I woke up this morning to the horror of another in Pittsburgh. What is going on with the world? Who declared war on the common man?

And how come the neighbors, coworkers, and loved ones of the suspect always say that he was a quiet person. Is there some correlation between being "quiet" and plotting to kill strangers for no apparent reason?

And whatever happened to the "big city" being the dangerous place. The killing sprees lately have been in rural America. Does this mean that no place is safe anymore?

I'm just sick of turning on the television and seeing that innocent folks, going about the mundane business of their daily lives are suddenly murder victims. How do you reconcile that? How does that fact NOT creep into the back of your mind at the most inopportune times during your day?

Your comments--priceless!!

    It's sad and unfortunate these tragedies are happening all over the United States. They're also happening over in Europe and Canada. Not too long ago a man helf a bus hostage and decapitated a student for no reason at all. What's going on now is and has been laid out in the Word....God did say all this would happen, we just haven't seen the worst of it yet but it's coming. There is no reconciliation for these horrible crimes and no answer for the motivation of the "person that was always quiet, with the good family, etc" suddenly snaps. But with the economy the way it is and layoffs, it's going to get worse before it gets better. We have to say prayed up!! Famine is next.

    Who declared war on the common man? That is a GREAT question. I hate to say this, but it is almost as if the common man has declared war on the common man by refusing to love him/herself, thereby rendering him/her utterly unable to love his or her neighbor. The only way to combat this is to spread love and pray. You may appear to be ridiculous to others in the process, but that is a small price to pay for potentially saving a life down the road.
