Mental illness doesn’t excuse, explain mass shootings

May the truth be told, I’m tired of people saying that because someone goes around shooting up schools, clubs, churches and shopping centers and killing other citizens that they are mentally ill and that mentally ill people are going to pop a pill and go somewhere and sit down or lie down.

It’s nothing but hatred and a lack of love for themselves or others, plus they don’t have the good Lord in their hearts. Their hearts are hardened, otherwise they wouldn’t think about doing something that mean in their lives.

Keep hope alive. Keep love, peace, joy and happiness, people — and God’s grace for us — alive too.
