Each one of us was shocked by what happened to V-Tech. Our hearts are crying, our minds are confused and our eyes are shocked.
How could an intelligent student to take such a horrible decision? Why did this happen?
All kind of questions like these are crossing to my mind and the only thing I do is pray. Pray for the families who suffered this great loss, pray for the safety of my family, pray for the safety of all our children, and pray for this nation who used to call itself “UNDER GOD.”
I know that everybody is digging in this person’s individual life to find the reason, but my heart is telling me only one answer: he was hopeless… He didn’t see any reason to live, he thought that this life was so miserable and it is not worth to be lived.
His heart was empty, his life didn’t have a purpose and that’s why he started to be mad on himself and mad on others. We all use to blame others for our own problems and failures. His problem was so deep and his heart was so empty…
We have just celebrated the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and in this time of hope we see such a hopeless person. I know that the first reaction is to hate him, and to hate him with all our heart, but think about how many people are out there that have the same problem with him.
I think this is a time to show love to the people, I think is the duty of the Church to bring the Good News of the Gospel to desperate people like him.
I used to preach in a high security prison and I was amazed to see criminals repenting and changing their life. We have to act to prevent another V- Tech rampage; and the laws, the counseling and the security won’t change this…
Our only hope is Jesus Christ the Light of the World, AND THE LIFE IS WORTH TO LIVE BECAUSE HE LIVES.
What will you do now? Will you judge? Will you hate? Will you be afraid or will you stand up and say: I will love more! I will share more with the people the love of my Savior!
It’s up to you to save our children’s future and to save our beautiful country… You can bring Hope for the Hopeless.
