LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Listen to our youth before it’s too late

“Enough is enough is enough.” These cries ring out especially from those caught up in these massacres occurring throughout our nation. But still nothing has happened. Why? Do they need more time? How silly we are to think such things.

We have massive school shootings like the one in Columbine High School, Littleton, Colorado, April 20, 1999, where 12 students and a teacher were killed by two teenagers, ages 17 and 18.

Shall I go on? April 16, 2007, Virginia Tech, Blackburg, Virginia, where 33 students were killed.

Dec. 14, 2012, Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newton, Connecticut. Twenty students and six teachers were killed.

Feb. 14, 2018, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Parkland, Florida, where 17 people were killed by a 19-year-old.

Of course, there are other massacres, leaving bodies of all ages behind for others to clean up. They say many are affected by such violence. They still, to this day, hear those gun· shots and see the bodies of their friends lying in pools of blood, and nothing has been done. They also say that 22 million kids live in homes where a gun is kept. Kept under lock and key or easily accessible? They say 239 school shootings happened, leaving 438 wounded and 138 killed, since Sandy Hook. It’s only our children who want to do something about it. Says a lot about our rulers. They say it’ll take time. Really?

Back in the 60s, a woman came to town and declared that there is no God. It was like overnight, laws were changed and God was kicked out of this country, our homes, our schools, and our government, especially from our courtrooms.

Those Ten Commandments should still be on our walls of government. But they say they might offend someone. I hate to tell you that every day a judge has handed down a sentence to someone who broke one of those commandments. “Thou shall not lie, steal, kill, and commit adultery.” But the courtrooms have taken down these laws of God, because you don’t mix God and country together. Why not? We’re in trouble as is.

The foolishness that has risen should be noticed at the next election. Do we really want a repeat of our history again? Our children want things done now, right now.

Crime rate has increased. The death penalty is argued, but because they are human, they should not be treated in an inhuman way. Yet, the victims, who are also human were treated in an inhumane way. But that’s alright, we’ll treat them with kindness, give them movie and book rights, while the victims are forgotten.

The scales of justice are so unbalanced. But yet in that same logic, abortion is made legal because women want the right to kill their unborn for their unselfish ways. This whole process was built on a lie. Yet, courtroom judges, who know what grows in a woman’s womb is a child, and needs nine months to grow, make it legal. How many women want to bear a child, but can’t because of some medical reasons? And these women want to destroy. Logical? I don’t think so.

We have so many drug issues now, but our politicians want to add a drug, not aware of what this drug does to the unborn, and make it legal. But that’s alright, it’s only a child and our health care (system) will take care of that. See how foolish our country has become, but we have ourselves to blame for that, electing those same jerks, time and time again. There are some good ones in the midst, though, but they don’t speak up.

There is only one Almighty God, our heavenly Father, who has a Son, called Jesus, that has promised He will return, and He has a book that teaches His way for us to obey, When He returns, “Every knee will bend and every tongue confess that He is Lord”. What a day that will be! All those who teach lies, preach lies, and treat the innocent as we do, will be held accountable in the end. Our forefathers thought a lot of that Bible.

First laws were built on that book and that book will be our judgment. I really do believe if we don’t listen to our youth in these tragedies and do something, we will listen to the Almighty in the end. One day He will have enough.
