Nearly four years after the massacre, Sandy Hook Elementary School is reopening. In December of 2012, 20 children and 6 teachers were killed when a 20 year old man opened fire.
Thinking back on it I remember a report from The Wall Street Journal, and these lines jumped out at me: “Evil visited this community today”. Those words by Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy were appropriate for the situation and no one would disagree.
However, it should be noted that evil did not arrive that day. It had always been there and still it. The forces of evil that provoked the attack on those children is a present reality all over the world, and at all time. It doesn’t visit. It just becomes visible.
