I took the following quote from a news article regarding the two shootings in Colorado over the weekend – when I read this young mans quote I couldn’t help but think how differently I’d be praying if I were in the same situation…

“It was obvious that he was in some sort of pain and going through a lot,” Gibbs [eye witness to the event] told NBC’s “Today” show. “I just prayed God would bring him peace.”

He’s such a better man than I. Personally I’d be praying for personal safety and that God would send a lightning bolt to zap the gunman dead in his tracks. Perhaps I’m a little self centered that way… 🙂
