Fort Hood Shootings Hit Home

Three Army Reserve units I have been assisting in their preparations for deployment were in the building when the shooting took place. I'm the one who typed up their orders that said, "You are hereby ordered to active duty..." Five of our soldiers were killed, and ten were wounded. One of the wounded was a friend that I helped get a position with one of the units.

I know it isn't my fault the people got hurt and killed--blame lies squarely on the man who shot them--but it hurts to see my comrades gunned down. I have only met one of these soldiers face-to-face (my friend), but they are like family.

Please pray for the wounded to recover and for God to bring comfort to the families of the slain soldiers. And please pray that we can find some way to bring a peaceful end to this war.

Show me a man who is twenty and not a liberal, and I will show you a man with no heart.
Show me a man who is forty and not a conservative, and I will show you a man with no brain.
