 JUST SIMPLY VERY SAD……………

Memorial Day weekend has brought violence to Chicago, with six killed and at least 22 wounded so far, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

On Friday evening a 17-year-old girl was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, and an 18-year-old man was shot in the chest in the same incident. Later that night another man was shot and killed.

On Saturday, Gregory Dixon, 29, was shot to death about half a mile from President Barack Obama’s Kenwood neighborhood home. Dixon buzzed the gunmen into the apartment building himself, according to police. The attackers then entered through a door left ajar and shot Dixon in the chest and back.

Also on Saturday, and 18-year-old man was shot in the head in a possible drive-by.

On Sunday, police responded to a disturbance call and found Malcolm Dobbey, 27, shot to death in a backyard. Detectives were questioning a “person of interest” in the fatal shooting, but no charges had been brought as of Sunday evening.

Charles Jones, 42, the manager of a gentleman’s club, was shot and killed during an incident in which a Buick LaCrosse sideswiped Jones’ Maserati. When Jones pulled over to confront the other motorist, the driver and a passenger walked to another vehicle and then came back. One of them had a gun and shot Jones dead, police said. A 42-year-old woman in his car was wounded by a shot to the hip or back.

God – Politics – Kids – Opinions – Church

God indeed is everywhere and sees everything BEFORE things even occur. Nevertheless, I have often heard so many people say why God… where was God…..when God in reference to shootings on school grounds.

Well according to legislation that has been passed for some years now, ONE MOTHER did not like that her son had to take part in a prayer in school and she fought to have a right to say NO to prayer. She was so gun ho about her beliefs that a bill was created and prayer from ALL SCHOOLS WAS REMOVED!

Now please keep in mind that was the opinion of only ONE MOTHER – sad to say….there were no marches… no other parents showed a huge concern in disagreement with her, no one else went to Capital Hill to fight against what she wanted the lawmakers to do etc..etc..etc.. churches did not protest or even make the situation apart of their morning sermons like they usually do when there is a public issue –

People mostly felt that this bill would not pass due to it being her OWN OPINION of what she felt her daughter should not have to be doing. Sadly, a great deal of people do not understand that is REALLY WHAT POLITICS is – the opinions of people who feel that their way of life is best suited for most communities, cities, counties, states etc. and they vote on it and MAJORITY RULES!

Another sad thing is that this prayer has been done in schools from the beginning of time ( fourscore and seven years ago as President Abraham Lincoln would say ) and this prayer is DONE IN CONGRESS and they still bypassed that and passed legislation on the same GOD that is written all over our money, school houses, churches and even legislation!!!!

So back to the questions of where was God…why God…when God…
Well I would like to ask this question to the PEOPLE THAT BELIEVE IN PRAYER………. Where were YOU when you got wind that this legislation was brought before Congress?

Because, one lady asked for God to be removed from schools… the flood gates of people did not put up a huge fight for her legislation to be thrown out and some people ONLY talked / complained amongst themselves which meant – YOU DID NOTHING.

Doing nothing is the same as AGREEING –

God does not enter into a place / space where He is not asked to come…..where He is not welcomed into. For the record, God WAS KICKED OUT!!! He is a gentleman and will NOT bo-guard His way into our lives….let alone a situation.

One question, is this not an interesting dynamic! Gotta love America!
