USA Mourns Massacre Of 20 Children Ages 5 and 6

It’s the news story that has replaced all other news stories around the world; an unstable 20-year-old armed with guns, one an assault semi-automatic rifle, deliberately kills his mother and then goes into the school where she worked and killed 20 children aged 6 and 7 along with 6 adults before turning a gun on himself. It brings back memories of Aurora and the problem of evil. In this case one may not be able to speak of evil as such if the young man had a mental illness but as well as raising questions for America with its gun culture, it also raises the question of suffering and evil which Lee Strobel addressed at the time of Aurora.
