Next week we celebrate Christmas, the season of peace. Unfortunately, rather than peace, we’ve seen some pretty horrific examples of violence occur around the globe.
Down under, in Sydney, Australia, the world nervously watched as a Muslim terrorist, who had previously been involved in murdering and setting on fire his wife, had sexually assaulted a whole series of women, and had sent threatening letters to families of fallen Australian soldiers, held 17 innocent hostages for 16 hours in a coffee shop. Among the demands he made were than an ISIS flag be sent in so he could proudly display it over the terror he had wrought on these innocent people. The standoff ended with his death, and the deaths of a mother of three young children, and the coffee shop manager.
