I’m going to skip away from my normal devotional to ask that question. There are moments of tragedy, moments of shock that are etched on the mind not just of individuals but on communities.

The next generation is marked by assassinations. Where were you when MLK and later JFK were shot?
For us, at least for Americans, that question is asked about the tragic events that occurred thirteen years ago today. I was a youth pastor in Webster NY, the first… only one in the building when the children’s pastor called and asked, “have you heard?” I acknowledged my ignorance and she, through choked up words managed to get out, “You need to turn on the TV.”
