AMIDST CONDOLENCES: WE CRY ALOUD; BLOOD OF THE INNOCENTS AT NEWTOWN CRY TOO!

Once again,we send our condolence to the bereaved families, including the family of the gunman and the entire community of Newtown Connecticut.Without any doubt,the barrage of news flow following the massacre of 20 innocent children and some adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School increased the anxiety, shock and sorrow over the unfortunate incident.In the flurry of reactions,unconfirmed reports had claimed that the gunman’s parents had been killed; one at home and the other in the school inside her classroom.The gunman’s elder brother was also initially wrongly named as the killer. Latest local authorities’ reports now confirm a more reliable picture. The 20-year old gun man,who was alleged to have killed himself later,has been identified as Adam Lanza, while the elder brother was found to have been elsewhere at the time of the shooting. The parents were no longer together and the father was quite safe and alive. The gunman was reported as having shot and killed his mother. Agape Focus is sorry to have included the unconfirmed reports as such in our initial reactions. Our primary concern at Agape Focus was about review of gun laws in order to avert a recurrence of such massacre. We appreciate the reactions of the State Governor on gun laws.The expressed deep concern of President Barack Obama is also highly appreciated and noteworthy.The previously expressed views of the Mayor of New York City,Mayor Bloomberg,are also highly appreciated. We hope that gun laws would be reviewed very soon. WITHOUT EQUIVOCATION,THE BLOOD OF THE INNOCENTS CRY ALOUD FOR A REVIEW! Tears alone cannot avail. We are deeply concerned and so WE CRY ALOUD TOO! When the time comes for gun laws to be reviewed, we do pray and hope that restrictions, monitoring and stricter measures would be put in place to avert another massacre. May God Almighty comfort the bereaved families and the horrified community. May abundant grace and wisdom be given to the Law Makers at the various tiers of government in the USA to make the right review. Amen.
