One day of tragedy...

I was watching the news yesterday and was amazed at all the things that happened. First of all the six kids who drowned at the Red River. Everyone went to the river yet there were no adults or children who could swim to save the kids who fell into a sink hole. The man who went back to where he worked and shot co-workers along with himself at the end. Then locally a 16 yr old stabbed his cousins who were 11 and 14 yrs. old, the 11 old died. A woman in Orange County was stabbed by a transient who asked for money in the parking lot. I'm sure stuff like this goes on all day long in different parts of the world but sometimes I wonder what motivated some of these things to happen. Was it a full moon or what?

some people have more evil in their mind, heart and soul than others. what other explanation is there for the kind of crimes they commit but pure evil.

I think it was sad about the cousin who stabbed his two females cousins. I wonder if anyone saw that coming or what made him snap that day? At work I can imagine it might have been something done out of what happened that morning since he was gonna get fired he got angry. Either way they decided to commit the crimes but what really went on?

PDBME2, All I can say is that if we live our lives in karmic ways then we will just have to bear the consequences. People everywhere seem to blame their parents, friends, enemies, Satan and even God for whatever had befallen on them but they (including me) always fail to point that finger at themselves (me) for the faulty choices where James once said : “each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed” . So, when we disobey God by sinning or throw our moral compass out of the door and commit heinous acts, let’s not shift the blame or justify our actions with the faulty “the devil made me do it” theology. Or, the werewolf's full moon theory....

I understand Skysuccess that everyone has to be accepting of the choices we make. Honestly though I did notice one full moon nights people acting wierder. We used to joke around it at work. Yes no one can blame their parents, friends, etc. when we choose to make wrong decisions. You can't stand in court to blame others because you will still be sentenced for what you do. I know on juddment day you can't blame others for what you chose to do. My criminal justice teacher said the same thing that it's a person's own decision to commit a crime yet you have a prison full of criminals who blame everyone else except themselves.

Herro PDBME2 I, sadly, was not amazed. I live in a large city, 1m+. As we watch the nighttime news we see a lot of violence. Shootings, knifing's, auto accidents, etc. T%hen add the non-local news, such as the stories you mentioned. My thought is from a Christian's perspective. God told us the world would be more violent as the time for Jesus's second coming got closer. Is that because Jesus is returning, the violence is increasing? No, it the violence that is increasing due to man's greed and violence. Look at Iran and nuclear power. Look at North Korea sinking the South Korea ship. Look at the pirates kidnapping the ships and demanding ransom. Look at Israel and Gaza. And that is just the ones in my immediate memory. Sometimes a full moon does contribute. Why? I don't know. Prosperous mylotting

So true, from a Christian perspective it's sad to see mankind becoming more evil and violent. It just amazes me when it comes in a downpour like yesterday. Some days it's so quiet and peaceful. I just mentioned the full moon because I used to work for the phone company and on full moon nights I'm not kidding alot of wierd people would call.
