Pray for our friends and families in Omaha, Nebraska. If you don't know what happened there, watch the news.

This really disturbs me. I have cousins who literally live down the street from this mall, I remember going there last time I visited them. I can't get in contact with them right now..............

Default Life is precious

Please never hold grudges. Life is too short and we never know when death
will come. We're all part of the human family and we should all start acting like it. After several thousand years you'd think we would start to understand this. Practicing compassion every day is the key.

Yeah, how does a person ever get to that point?

Wow. I just read about it right now. How sad, really. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims. I cant imagine the horror/sadness they must be going through.

Unbelievable.

From reading the news articles about the shooter, sounds like a kid who's gotten the message he's a loser all his life. His story reminds me of Shane, a kid my son befriended in 4th grade. He's 24 now, and everytime I hear about something like this I pray to God it's not Shane who did the killing.

Those two uniquely American traits, throw-away kids and easily available guns are the main ingredients in this recipe. What a tragedy, what a waste of 10 lives.
