Can tears wash away tragedy? Can prayer heal broken homes and hearts?
Too many times this week too many people are asking this question.
West, Texas. West, the Czech Stop. Everyone that drives 35 to Austin or Dallas knows West. It's where we stop and get kolaches. Wonderful square pastries filled with fruit. A town full of dueling bakeries each looking to entice travelers to come to their shop.
Nothing bad could happen to a town built with dough, sugar and fruit.
Twice this week the things we never dreamed could be tragic have been struck by the unthinkable.
People have been saying the world has become too full of evil. Too full of ugly. The bad outweighs the good.
In these times, in these times of despair, of sadness, broken people, of loss, these are the times we choose. We choose who we are. We choose what we still want the world to be.
So many good people feel there is more bad than good. Now is the time to face evil. To face senseless loss. Defy the hate. To look the ugly and the evil straight in the eye and say; "There are more of us than there are of you".
And with that we rebuild.
