Catherine+ has posted a piece of Barbara Crafton’s Response to The VT Horror

April 17, 2007


Over at Come to the Table, Catherine has posted a piece of Barbara+’s response to the VT tragdey through her daily eMo. You can view it here, and drop in and pray with Catherine and Barbara for all those trying to comprehend the uncomprehendable. Virginia Tech Worse Case Scenario.

Barbara’s words provide something of a framework for what has happened/is happening.

May God have mercy on them, and on us all.

    Amen.

    But while we can never, ever be fully in control, we do make policies and decisions that affect our common life, including its violence. (As someone said about five presidential campaigns ago about homeless people, “That’s public policy you see walking around on the streets.”) See my blog for the link to Sam Kobia (Rev. Dr. Samuel Kobia, Secretary General of the World Council of Churches)’s fine statement on control of small arms trade. or go straight to the World Council of Churches website.

    Jane – It’s a good point – we are helpless to repair the finality of what has happened, but, we can certainly work hard to try to prevent this from happening again.
