No Words

prayer church acljDAVID FRENCH, ACLJ

There are no words that can adequately convey our sense of sorrow at the horror in Connecticut. We mourn for and with the victims of [Friday’s] shooting and pray for the fulfillment of Christ’s promise in the Sermon on the Mount:

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”

May God bless the parents and families of Sandy Hook Elementary School.
