Just watched a man on CBS in his hospital bed be interviewed after being shot in the Colorado Shootings. -
When he was asked: “Why do you think he did it?”
He said something along the lines of, “There’s evil in this world. Unfortunately there is an enemy. But there’s a good that is SO MUCH greater than this evil and overpowers it.”
When asked,”What do you think of him?”
He said, “He must be so angry. I can’t imagine what it must be like to wake up every day with that much anger. I know this isn’t popular opinion, but I feel sorry for him.”
Interviewer: “So you don’t hate him?”
Man: “No. I’m going to pray for him.”
That my friends is Christianity.
Recently in Aurora, Colorado a 24 year old man named James Holmes, open fired in a theatre at the the sold out Batman premiere. He shot a total of 71 people, and killed 12. The victims of this tragedy had not asked for this, and did not deserve this. Among them were a 6 year old girl, who’s mother is in critical condition from the shooting and has not learned that her baby girl is dead. Another victim lost his life while shielding his girlfriend of 2 years.
My heart and prayers have and will go out to the families, and friends of the victims and also to the people wounded, as i hope that they fully recover from this tragedy.
Please reblog this even if it doesn’t fit your blog type, it wont make your blog look “ugly”.
I would really like to see how many notes we can get this, to show the families of the victims that they are in our hearts, and we are praying for them.

Oh, Father forgive him, he didn’t know what he was doing.

In some cases saying ILOVEYOU prematurely can be very unloving thing to do. Unless those words are sincere and expression of true commitment, they are meaningless and can cause great pain. — done reading boy meets girl(say hello to courtship) by Joshua Harris (via im-an-openbook)
Sweet reality. And by the time you will be revealed to me, and I to you, I’ll have to sing you the song “God bless the broken Road”. ^^, I’m excited for you. God is great!
