I don’t know how this particular perpetrator became so savage. It is a relief we don’t have to suffer through a post-tragedy trial, but it would have made closure easier if there were some explanation. Yet the simple explanation for unspeakable evil is choosing, time after time, against guidance from God.
The path away from evil is toward God. May we ever follow the path leading us closer to God, and may we lead all children there with us.
God bless the families suffering the loss of a beloved child, family member, or friend.
