DiscoverChristianSchools.com mourns with those families whose children have been slain during the past week in school shootings. The entire staff of DiscoverChristianSchool.com is praying for those who have lost their children.
Harold Naylor, co-founder of DiscoverChristianSchools.com expressed his deepest sympathy for these parents and notes that the Amish parents of these precious children have become a remarkable witness to the watching world. "It is devastating to think that in the normal course of sending your children to school each day, the unthinkable could happen. Our hearts ache over the tragedies that have occurred in Pennsylvania and across the U.S. in the past week, and we willcontinue to pray for parents, children and our culture. We also highly commend the entire Amish community in Lancaster, PA as they have become a perfect model of what forgiveness is all about. One mourning family member told the family of Charles Roberts, the man who shot the children that, 'Christ forgave us, so we forgive Charles'. This is a profound and life-changing example of what living out true Christianity really means and sends a passionate message to the culture of today."
Statistics have shown that public schools have a higher percentage of violence than do private schools in the U.S. For more information, visit www.DiscoverChristianSchools.com.
