We don’t get to choose when tragedy strikes but it’s up to us to help out the victims even when there are more every day. God’s not going to fix anything.

… a town will try to rebuild, heal the wounds (physical and mental), and help those that are now stuck with finding a place to live and covering medical bills that they might now have insurance for. Put yourself in their shoes… what would you do?
