I have been watching the news for the last couple hours. We had another school shooting here in Colorado and it was very close to where we live. This is in our county and in our school district and it is very hard to hear this news. The school my wife teaches at and our kids attend was put on lock down as well as other schools in our district. The shooting happened at a K-12 S.T.E.M. charter school in Highlands Ranch, which is about 15 minutes west of us. They said they have two shooters in custody and they are still looking for a third (as of 3:40 MDT). There are multiple kids (at least 7 confirmed now) who have been injured and some of them were taken to the hospital right up the street where our kids were born. We don’t know the ages of the kids or the extent of the injuries. Please pray for all the kids who were injured and please pray for our community. Douglas County is a great place to live and we have a very low crime rate here. This is a very bad day for our community and I pray the Lord brings peace and healing to all those who were injured.
There is a lot I want to say about this shooting and the state of the world in our time, but now is not the time. Now is the time to lift this tragedy up to God in prayer.
“…The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”
God bless you all
