America is Not Having Bad Luck With Mass Shootings

America is Not Having Bad Luck With Mass Shootings

Inside 26 white chairs have been placed, with the name of each victim painted in gold on them. Each chair had a red rose tied to it, except for one that had a pink rose for the unborn baby.

If the shooter was stopped by an armed citizen, then gun control opponents, who use him as an example of this theory are saying 26 deaths is a successful example of the argument. A recording of scripture readings from a previous church service played as small groups of people walked around the room silently. The normalization of the domestic attacks makes it hard for us to remember.

Mike Ritch, a chef who co-founded Smokin' Angels BBQ Ministry after Hurricane Harvey battered the Texas coast, said Sunday that the exact tally hadn't been determined but that it exceeded the group's $50,000 goal "by some portion". We will remember the innocent lives that were lost at First Baptist Church Sutherland Springs, Burnette Chapel and Mother Emanuel AME and so many others over the years. He says all of the money will go directly to the families.

The Sutherland Springs shooting proved the argument wrong again when 26 people died before the good guy with a gun took out the bad guy with a gun.

The service Sunday was expected to draw about 500 people. Nonetheless, the frequency and visibility of mass shootings could eventually contribute to calls for solutions that might involve more thorough screening of gun purchases - something anathema to Second Amendment proponents.

"You can't buy peace", Pastor Cosby said during an interview. At that time he tweeted "May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas". Mark Collins, a previous pastor at First Baptist, said it was the largest gathering in the church's 100-year history.

AT&T Could Seek White House Communications in Antitrust Review
Previously, the president has blasted AT&T and Time Warner's merger plans - and during the 2016 election he threatened to block the companies from combining under his watch.

While many churches have long had plans for floods or tornadoes, Wohlrabe said violence and bloodshed in a church has always been seen as a societal taboo.

"We had some unbelievable people come and pull off a miracle to basically rebuild the sanctuary in about 72 hours", said Collins. He said this as he fought back tears. His daughter was known as Annabelle R. Pomeroy.

"We want it to be a message to the world that this will not break us", Pastor Pomeroy said.

Members of the media asked Collins if the almost 100-year-old church building will stay. "I know all of those church members killed, some of them my best friends, are dancing with Jesus today".

The crowd stood, clapped and raised their hands to heaven as Pomeroy spoke.

The Serve the City plan was already in place, a partnership with Children's Hunger Fund to feed the community, but after last week's church shooting in Sutherland Springs, the event gained new meaning.
