Each innocent life lost in the December 2 violence in San Bernardino was precious. Each was intimately connected through family and friendship to many others, who now survive them and bear a burden of unearned suffering.
Pursuing justice in this matter is in the hands of law enforcement. Our task as Christians is to pray for those persons whose lives were ended by the inexcusable cruelty of others.
