You TV news watchers out there are likely already aware of this, but I just received a tragic notice from the Wall Street Journal that the University of Texas no longer holds the “record” of experiencing the deadliest campus shooting in US history.
Apparently this morning, a little after 7:00AM at Virginia Tech, a gunman opened fire in a co-ed dorm and then later in a classroom killing at least 21 and injuring dozens more. I don’t think any motives are being offered yet at this time, but the verse that comes to my mind first is Matthew 24:12, “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”
The early AP article on the tragedy can be read here.
May God’s Kingdom come quickly.
