I was thinking more in political and cultural terms.
Never did I think it would happen this way.
And never before in my life have I ever wished to be more wrong.
Indeed, it IS a sad day. Many, many more ahead.

They volunteered to serve and protect our county from any clear and present danger and, in this case, the entire world, remembering the UN's warning of "serious consequences..."

If the 'boy'(he was 17) as you say had been taught to respect others and his surroundings he would still be alive. As I said sound can be painful if not down right deadly. The Army has sound weapons.

God is great and God is Good,
And we thank God for our food;
By God's hand we must be fed,
Give us Lord, our daily bread. Amen.
Now, before I run to play,
Let me not forget to pray
To God who kept me through the night
And waked me with the morning light.
Help me, Lord, to love thee more
Than I ever loved before,
In my work and in my play
Be thou with me through the day.
Amen.
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God's love commits me here;
Watch over me throughout the night,
keep me safe within your sight.
God of Light and Truth,
thank you for giving me
a mind that can know
and a heart that can love.
Help me to keep learning every day of my life,
for all knowledge leads to you.
Let me be aware of your presence
in all things and at all times.
Encourage me when work is difficult
and when I am tempted to give up;
encourage me when my brain seems slow
and the way forward is difficult.
Grant me the grace to put my mind to use
exploring the world you have created,
confident that in you there a wisdom
that is real.
Amen.
I hear no voice, I feel no touch,
I see no glory bright;
But yet I know that God is near,
In darkness as in light.
God watches ever by my side,
And hears my whispered prayer:
A God of love for a little child
Both night and day does care.
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep:
May God guard me through the night
And wake me with the morning light.
Amen.
We thank Thee Lord, for happy hearts,
For rain and sunny weather.
We thank Thee, Lord, for this our food,
And that we are together.
I ASSUME YOU'RE BEING IRONIC? IS IT JUST ME OR IS EVERYBODY ELSE STONED TOO?

Prayer for God's Children
Father God, I come before your throne of grace with your dear children heavy on my heart. Father I thank you that you are a merciful God full of love and compassion for your people. Lord God, I ask you in the name of Jesus to touch your children all over the world with your hand of greatness today. Touch the broken hearted and bind up their wounds. Touch the sick and heal their bodies. Touch the hopeless and the helpless and speak words of encouragement to their minds, body, spirit and souls. Father your people are in need of strength and direction, Lord be a strong tower and a compass for your people today Lord. In the name of Jesus. Amen

As I get ready to leave I want to say my thoughts are with those lost, left behind, and morning.

Oh! One other thing. I noticed when the president was talking the lost children's future he mentioned graduation, marriage, and future children. Along with a few other things. But he didn't mention Christmas. Now I wonder why, especially this time of year he wouldn't mention that? Just seemed curious to me.

There is no law against playing music. Btw, that killer has been charged with murder one. It was in a gas station c store parking lot, he fled, the kid was unarmed. You should be ashamed of yourself. It's stupid ignorant logic like yours that gave that killer a sense of entitlement to the point of taking a life.

You are making a goofy statement. WW2 we had millions who were taught to kill in defense of our country and we did not have these kinds of horrible events. Don't blame the military, that is just a liberal excuse.

Read it again moron. You stopped before you came to "Even if there is such a provision in the agreement, the most that can be required of you is to pay the union fees... agency fee".
This made my point that no one is REQUIRED to join a union, just pay their fair share of negotiating and enforcing a contract.
"Under the NLRA, you cannot be required to be a member of a union or pay it any monies as a condition of employment unless the collective bargaining agreement between your employer and your union contains a provision requiring all employees to either join the union or pay union fees. Even if there is such a provision in the agreement, the most that can be required of you is to pay the union fees (generally called an "agency fee.")"
A distinction without a difference. If you join, you pay fees. If you don't join, you still pay fees. Plus, you will be harassed by thugs in the workplace and out. Calling a dog a cat doesn't make it a cat. It just insults the dog.
