Much has been made of the community's forgiveness of the man who did this heinous crime. They believe that it is their duty to forgive because they have been forgiven by God. They do struggle with their loss, and understandably. They, like many of us, must work daily to forgive, it is not often once and done. They made a decision to forgive. They have reached out to the widow of the shooter and to his children. This family has been devistated by this crime as well.
Today we remember, and we pray for the families, that they will have peace that passes all understanding.
