A sad day in America

— What has recently happened again here in the good-old U.S.A. is very sad, especially for those who were directly affected. It is also sad that the one (Boston Marathon bombing suspect) had to be killed without a chance to learn a better way of life.

It is also sad to hear that the younger brother (and other bombing suspect), who is still alive, had written somewhere that he doesn’t have one friend here in the USA, and that he just cannot understand the people here.

Is it any wonder when mostly what those people see is what is on TV every day, specifically the awful movies that come out of Hollywood, or wherever, packed full of violence, immortality and all that is evil.

And then they hear that we are a Christian nation. And even among professing Christians, the love of money and affluent lifestyles seems to be the acceptable thing in our day — what we seem strive for. May God help us. Maybe our nation is ready for judgment.
