What We Can Learn from Tragedy

I have been quiet in this space.

A week ago Friday, the landscape of our country changed.  Good versus evil collided in a way that none could have imagined and it has left us shaken, sad and questioning.

It did not feel right to write anything that wasn’t related to what is on everyone’s mind and heart.  At the same time, life has to go on.  Work, wrestling matches, Christmas preparations. It is a difficult juxtaposition.

I wrote a bit about what I am learning from the tragedy over at The MOB Society.  {click on the link to be taken to the article}

And, while we go through our Christmas and holiday traditions and love on our families, please lift the families of those lost a little over a week ago up to the King of Kings.  The victims names are listed below:
