I sat down to write this blog, and I can’t. I apologize that I don’t have some pithy story for you about science relating to my life and my faith. As I sit here, I am consumed by the grief of the multiple shootings this weekend and their personal connection to me.
When I tried to think of science, all I could think of was the science involved in the trigger starting a spring mechanism that ignites the primer which ignites the main propellant to create the necessary propulsion for the bullet out of the gun. Or I think of the science behind the force of impact of that bullet on flesh, what medically happens to your flesh/organs/veins/nerves when hit by this. It’s too painful and yet all I can think of.
I have no deep thoughts. I am struggling to make understandable thoughts at all. I only want to plead with the world to follow God’s two greatest commandments, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Our world needs more love. My heart aches for anyone affected by the events of this last weekend. I truly wish the world had more love, for everyone.
