The folks inside the beltway in Washington D.C. should sit down and listen to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director David Rausch.
He spoke about the tragic mass shooting that took place in Nashville on Monday. The shooter opened fire on students and faculty at Covenant School, killing six including three children.
Covenant School is a private Christian school where approximately 200 students attend preschool through 6th grade.
The TBI Director offered up prayers to the victims and families of victims as well as the community. After his prayer, he said that they knew he would be criticized for doing so but said, “that’s the way we do it in the South. We believe in prayer, and we believe in the power of prayer, so our prayers go out to these families.”
What a beautiful and simple defense of the power of prayer. But Rausch was right on target about the response. It did not take long before there were meltdowns in social media by the woke population.
Leftist actor John Wesley Shipp wrote this angry tweet: “If you believe that prayer works—and you & GOP gun lobbyists keep praying—how do you explain that your prayers aren’t working, as the number of children and adults murdered with easily-obtainable military grade assault weapons continues to rise?”
Shipp just failed to see the real power of prayer. It doesn’t paralyze man’s free will, so bad things may continue to happen. But prayer brings overwhelming peace and comfort to those who are hurting.
When other tragic acts of violence have happened across the country, people have responded with prayer vigils, prayer walks, and prayer gatherings.
Any person of real faith will tell you how much prayers have meant to them in times of great need.
You can seek solutions to prevent future mass shootings and pray for those who are impacted by them…no matter what the left says.
