Having been through a ministry related shooting incident in my home (with our children there too) and going through quite a time dealing with it, and helping the kids deal with it- (did not show with some children until they were in Bible College) I am thinking, are we ready to go through this kind of thing again? I know you all are prepared to protect your homes, but it is not easy to hurt someone else who is attacking your family, no matter what the reason. Even though you know it is the right thing to do, our bodies still react to the stress- how are you preparing your family to go through what could be one of the most horrific times in America that we've had? (If things continue to worsen) It is one thing to read about trials of this nature, another to experience it. What are they doing for the soldiers who return from the war? That may be a starting place. My starting place is with God, He gives grace in the time of need- but he also gives us the knowledge to be forwarned.
