Return To What We Know Is Right

Looking back to the awful killing of this nation’s children in the different schools across our nation it is so sad, so devastating to the families, the community and the world. It is such a tragedy, to not only the children especially, but also the adults, the parents and the nation. A person my age has to ask this all important question; “What has happened in our society today that has made these school shootings so frequent? If you just take time to look a blind man can see it.

Things need to change in America. We do not need more gun laws, or more police patrolling the halls of our schools. I have written many articles on this, but I feel like enough is never said about this. Morality in our public is gone and prayer was taken out of the public schools in 1963. Since 1963, several trends have occurred. Teenage pregnancy has risen, divorce rates have tripled and violent crimes and drugs have become lifestyles.

These trends have resulted in children in single-parent homes where the child has been deserted by one parent or the other,sometimes both. These children feel abandoned and are scared in heart, mind and spirit. They have no one to turn to and often end up engaging self-destructive behavior.We need to allow God back in the classrooms and return prayer to our schools. We have put God out in the cold. God is gone from our schools and now we have mass killings of our kids, drugs, sex, and who knows what else in our schools.

The people who stopped prayer in schools are partly to blame. These children need a friend to turn to and have a personal relationship with. They need God. We need to pray for America to change from its promiscuous lifestyle. That lifestyle has resulted in more than 60 million babies being aborted. This act will never be justified by our Heavenly Father. If we as a nation want our schools to be a safe haven again then we must have God as a part of our school system.

It was eleven days before Christmas, around 9:38,

when twenty beautiful children stormed through Heaven’s gate.

Their smiles were contagious and their laughter filled the air,

because they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.

They were filled with so much joy they didn’t know what to say,

and they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.

“Where are we?” asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse;

“This is Heaven,” declared a small boy, “and we are spending Christmas at God’s house.”

When what to their wondering eyes did appear,

but Jesus – their Savior – and the children gathered near.

He looked at them and smiled and they smiled just the same,

as He opened His arms and He called each by name.

In that moment was joy that only Heaven can bring,

when all those children flew into the arms of their King.

While they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,

one small girl turned and looked at His beautiful face.

He knew fully all the questions she had,

so He gently whispered to her, “I’ll take care of mom and dad.”

He looked down on America so far below,

and saw all of the hurt, the sorrow and woe.

He closed His eyes and stretched out His hand,

“Let My power and presence re-enter this land!

May the country be delivered from the hands of fools,

and allow my presence back in the nation and back the schools.”

He and the children stood up without a sound,

“Come now my children and let me show you around.”

Excitement filled the space as some skipped and some ran,

all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.

I heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,

“In the midst of the terrible darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT.”
