Prayers for the Martin and Zimmerman families
Yeah, that's all. As tempting as it is to join with the media and other special interest groups to ramrod agendas at the expense of two human beings, it's nice to remember the old Christian notion that humans aren't convenient chattel only useful for the ramming of agendas. A young man is dead. Another young man's life is forever changed. The dead young man had issues that may be ignored to the detriment of those who idolize him. And yet, it appears he was doing nothing wrong in the neighborhood in which he breathed his last. The living man is already subject to such hatred that it chills the bones to witness it. And in it all, two families have had their lives forever turned upside down. Two families who have done nothing at all wrong, no matter what the two young men were guilty of. They will need all the prayers they can get. Prayers for healing. Prayers for peace. Prayers for forgiveness. Prayers for safety. Prayers for justice. The list goes on and on.
