People must learn to observe Godly rules, regulations

The awful tragedy in Newton, Conn., could have been in any one of our schools. Iím an elderly woman, not a special person until it comes to poor choices that are evident in this world, such as violence on TV (itís there every day, the drinking, immorality, the arrogance and terror of crimes inflicted in a country that was founded on faith, endurance, kindness, tolerance and compassion, as you read history of our early ancestors. They werenít perfect (no one on earth becomes perfect). But when our nation openly disgraced the Ten Commandments in the courtrooms and prayer in school at baccalaureates and commencements, and places of respect and dignity, for the cheap conversations, dirty talk, jokes, liquor, divorce, cruelty to children and elderly, we must be blind or so indifferent to Godly principles.

If anyone asks why does God allow this, He doesnít. Itís by human wickedness and carelessness while millions of dollars are squandered for the millions of things that actually help no one. Does it take such awful atrocities to wake us up for a few weeks until another violent thing comes along? Why donít people write our congressional representatives and demand some changes in the laws?

People must learn to observe Godly rules and regulations and enact them in every way they can to help prevent such atrocities in our beautiful world.
