That is the appropriate response right now. For those of us outside of the loop – which is the majority – pray, or hope if you’re of a more secular bent, for peace.
It’s easy today, with access to keyboards and our opinions just gushing to get out, to run forward and use what is happening to the best of our agendas. But I think in this case, no.
Rather than slip into that tendency, let’s just come together to hope and/or pray for that ever elusive peace.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. Psalm 46.9
