Sadness in SLC

I am not posting anything today except this request for everyone to pray for the victims of last night's shootings at Trolley Square and their families. For those of us who live in Northern Utah, Trolley Square is a place we have all been many times, either to shop, go to the movies, have meal, or a beer in The Pub. Last night an eighteen year-old young man, wearing a trench-coat entered the mall and calmly started shooting people with a shot-gun and a handgun. He killed five people before being shot and killed by police, including an off-duty Ogden City policeman, who happened to be in the mall at the time of the shootings.

Let our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and their families and, as difficult as it is, to the obviously disturbed killer. Of course, we should all always be thankful to the men and women who daily walk the thin blue line, putting themselves at risk to keep us safe.

Holy Mary, Comforter of the Afflicted - pray for us.
