Stop. Pray.

A sense of numbness.  I have not felt like this since 9/11.

I don't need to know "why" - that's really so very easy.  We are a sinful people by our very nature.  These things will always happen.

So beyond that, there is an intense feeling that the entire world should just ....STOP.  Stop - and do nothing else, but pray, and absorb and acknowledge and GET what has just happened.  STOP.  And do NOTHING but pray for the souls of those who have left us.  Pray for the soul of the very sick young man who brought this pain on us all.  Pray for those eternally wounded who have witnessed this in so many ways - those who helped, those who survived, those who will help the survivors.  

As a friend said today - get on your knees.  Oh, how I wish that at a time like this the entire world would do just that.  Kneel.  Pray.  Pray for mercy.  Pray for peace.  Pray for wisdom. Pray for understanding.  Pray for faith.  

Oh how I wish the entire would would just.....stop....and pray.
