APRIL: THE MONTH OF VIOLENCE

My brithday is April 21st. And usually about a week out, I get nervous. Why?

APRIL 19, 1993- the seige at Waco, Texas comes to a violent and bloody end. APRIL 19, 1995- the Oklahoma City Bombing. APRIL 20, 1999- Columbine. APRIL 16, 2007- the Virginia Tech shootings. Yesterday, APRIL 15, 2013- the Boston Marathon bombing.

Investigators are still looking for suspects in yesterday’s tragedy. Maybe they should look no further then their own backyards. All of the above incidents were “home grown” in their violent execution and ALL of them took place between April 14-21st. Needless to say, when this time of year comes around, I hold my breath and pray that nothing bad happens to add to the registry of violence. But that wasn’t the case yesterday.

I guess, if you have to find something positive from any of the above, its that we are resilient in our return to normalcy. We cope and deal with the pain and try quickly to find answers, despite the fact that more questions ultimately present themselves in the process of the healing. And, yes, we will find out soon enough who was responsible for the bombings in Boston yesterday. But the question “why” will always be in play. Until then may God bless Boston. Mourn the lives lost and pray that the many injured both physically and emotionally heal quickly.
