Give Them Strength

Yesterday was a very sad day. I spent most of my evening glued to my computer as a terrible story was unveiled. 


A sophomore at Marinette High School (A school in Wisconsin – just minutes away from my parent’s house) held his classroom at gunpoint yesterday afternoon, 23 students and 1 teacher. After a 5 hour standoff 5 students were released and then minutes later the situation ended quickly when the gunman decided to take his own life. At that point a Rescue Crew quickly got into the room and brought the rest of the hostages out and to their families. 


As far as we know the only injured person was the gunman. It hasn’t been announced yet but from what my dad heard on the scanner, the 15-year old gunman passed away last night and his body was sent to Green Bay for an autopsy. 


The school has been closed down for at least today.

Please pray for all of those affected by this tragedy. Give them the strength to get through this!


Pray especially for those who witnessed the end of this young boy’s life.
