An Unimaginable Situation

I really didn’t pay attention to the situation in the Middle East. I saw some horrifying pictures of murdered children last year. I recoiled at first. How do you react to something like that?

I reacted in anger, but anger with who. I am not a soldier, world leader, or God. There is really nothing a person like me can do about all the insanity.

I started down the road of “the good old USA doing something!” However after being at war for 14 years I don’t think more war more can be the answer. War against Who? ISIS or one of a dozen rebel groups? I have read that the US being there for so long and then pulling out may have had something to do with it. I don’t know if there is any truth to that or not.

So back to the dead children. I saw the murdered children. Then I saw the Christians being beheaded. It all made me go numb. Then my wife showed me this video.

It is heart wrenching and shows how it could have been my children. It’s not some random tribe. They are children and families like mine.

Now I still don’t have any good ideas. I still feel helpless. I have heard that dead children have been washing up on the beaches of Europe. About the only thing I think I can do is pray and give money. At least with funds those who can help will be able to.

I don’t know what is going to happen with this horrible situation. I don’t know how anything good can come of this. It just seems like mindless violence for violence sake.

Please Give and Pray

So again. Please pray for those who are going through these horrors. If you can afford it follow one of the links below and give whatever you can.
