I am so Sad and Angry

To the families, the first responders, the cops, the community  in Connecticut, I give you my prayers, blessings, and condolences.
To the monster who did this, damn you into the hellfire, and the jaws of the pit, you will  burn.

This is Psalm 63.  It was a favorite passage of scripture of Gen. George Patton, a war hero of mine, since my grandfather served under his command in the European Theater during WWII. He favored it when things got tough and everyone and everything was coming down around him for the actions he took during his command.

"O God, you are my God, early will I seek you: my soul thirsts for you, my flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;

To see your power and your glory, so as I have seen you in the sanctuary.

Because your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise you.

Thus will I bless you while I live: I will lift up my hands in your name.

My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise you with joyful lips:

When I remember you on my bed, and meditate on you in the night watches.

Because you have been my help, therefore in the shadow of your wings will I rejoice.

My soul follows hard after you: your right hand upholds me.

But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.

But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that swears by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped."


  1. That is a good one dear Vicki.

    Evil will not always be with us.

    Love and hugs to you ~ FlowerLady

  2. I think no-one can remain untouched by this man's madness, least of all the families of those slain. My thoughts and prayers go out to them.

    Hugs to you as well Vicki, and thank you for your quotation from Psalms.

  3. Vicki, none of us can imagine what those parents and loved ones are going through,nor can we begin to understand why.

    I had never read that Psalm before. Thank you for posting it.

  4. What can one say. Yet another mindless idiot that should have been locked away years ago. And what was his mother doing with all those guns? I despair.

    1. One can never tell what someone else might do with someones firearms when they get them. It's unfortunate and very sad.
      It's now, of course, a great time for panic thinking and control measures.
