Another school shooting grips our nation as we struggle for answers. Eight students and two faculty members are dead. Thirteen others were wounded by an angry student armed with a shotgun and pistol. But unlike the Parkland school shooting, for the most part students and parents aren't calling for more gun restrictions. They've banded together in prayer. Santa Fe School District is where a famous Supreme Court ruling said students couldn't use loudspeakers for the purpose of prayer. That didn't stop them from praying though. They've continued to pray without the microphones and they're still praying today. They're response to this tragedy reveals that the root cause of violence is a heart issue. And going to the Creator of our very souls for solace and lasting solutions is a good place to begin.
