Seven score and ten years ago Abraham Lincoln was facing a country divided by slavery, but today we face a different kind of division. Republican vs. Democrat — Christian vs. Humanist, gun control vs. gun rights, and Abortion vs. Pro-Life. If I was Abraham Lincoln today and was facing a country so divided, I would not know where to begin. Being brought up in a Christian home, I suppose I would begin by encouraging Christians to live and die completely for God. But I do not think that is enough to bring this nation together to fight economic and political ruin.
by Dr. Sam Heiks For better or worse, my family decided to take the plunge and add a puppy to the ranks. With the exception of leaping all over guests and peeing on the carpet early in the mornings, we have enjoyed the experience. Like any good experience in life, we are learning something about ourselves as a family along the way.

Twenty elementary school children and six adults were assassinated by an American terrorist. This latest tragic massacre is a bi-product of a lack of mental health services, our gun culture and the easy availability and access to high-powered weapons. That combination is deadly. A recent “Mother Jones” study has listed 61 mass killings in the United States in the last 30 years. This carnage is senseless, but continues making us all potential victims living in fear of that next attack.
Since 1933 more Americans have been killed by firearms in the United States than in all our wars combined. We need to stop taking body counts and seek positive, common sense legislation to stop this madness. We should all be angry, but direct that anger for reasonable enforcement of and solutions to this firearm danger.
