So terrible!

Ohio shooting of girl in Amish buggy a homicide

A 15-year-old girl from a religious group dedicated to peaceful religious values. Despite the fact that this type of violence is the act of a violent, immoral, insane (though perhaps not clinically insane) person in the first place, who would do this to a helpless individual like this? I guess I just answered my own question.

Lord, I pray that she is resting peacefully in your arms, and that you bless her community with the same peace and forgiveness that you have given them in the past...
