In the wake of so many senseless deaths that have occurred in Jacksonville Florida, there is a greater need for prayer and a higher concern for our youth who may be subject to people who act before they think. From the “Stand Your Ground Law”, to “Vehicular Manslaughter”, or just plain “Murder”, there have been numerous acts of violence that left parents without their children and the guilty parties serving time in prison or walking the streets to live their lives.
Do you recall the criminal cases that happened a little more than a year ago? The families have not forgotten.
- Parents of Trayvon Martin send thank you letter to son’s supporters
- Somer Thompson killer is finally sentenced, but not to death
- Jordan Davis is killed & another statistic for the 'Stand Your Ground Law'
- JaNay Jackson is killed as a van plows into her bedroom
Some people are upset and want to blame racial profiling, but some of the crimes listed above were not White on White, or Black on White, or Hispanic on Black crimes; they were crimes committed by people who were not thinking before they acted. None of the offenders were charged with premeditated murder.
Travon Martin will be remembered in love, but what about the other deaths that have taken children away from this earth too soon? After the news media have moved on to other cases, what about the families who hold the memory of their loved ones deep in their hearts? What about the crimes that are committed and there is no consolation? What about the families who are left behind? What is the solution?
The answer is not in having a gun to protect oneself; nor is it in a “vigilantly movement”. The only answer is to turn to God in times like this. 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” Heal the hurt, heal the confusion, heal the injustice and heal the people of this land. We tried everything else and it’s not working.
