Our heartfelt prayers and sympathy go out to all those involved and affected by the horrific shootings in Arizona.  But the solutions voiced by the radical liberal media to ban guns and censor speech are alarming and unconstitutional.  My thoughts are racing in a "what if" direction.  What if this killer had been taught throughout his life that life is precious and valuable because each one is created by God in His own image and likeness. That God has a meaningful plan and purpose for each life from conception until natural death and "Thou shalt not murder" is a command from the One who gave us life.  Every person's life is so important to God that if someone intentionally destroys that life, his own life will be taken from him.  What if this killer had been taught the truth instead of horrible lies about just being an animal who evolved without purpose or significance.  What we are taught and what we think makes a difference in who we become and what we do.  Instead of trying to prevent crime by taking away all our God-given freedom, why don't we ban and censor all the lies that our children are learning day after day, year after year in schools that have removed that very truth that will build good character and hold all life sacred.
