Never Watch the News Again

This world is filled with such horrible people today. Why do there have to be so many evil people out there. I know I am pregnant and that I am an emotional wreck sometimes, but last night I was brought to tears by the following story about Baby Grace. Sometime back, they found a toddler in the Galveston Bay and named her Baby Grace. Well, yesterday the 19-year old mother came forward and confessed that she and her 24-year old husband (step-father) murdered the child. The story reported the following:

In a statement to police included in the affidavit, Trenor, 19, said she and Zeigler, 24, killed Riley on July 24.

The girl was beaten with leather belts, had her head held underwater in a bathtub and then was thrown across a room, her head slamming into a tile floor on July 24, Trenor said in the document. She said they kept the body in a storage shed for one to two months before they put it in a plastic bin and dumped it into Galveston Bay.

I can't stop thinking about this little girl and how much abuse she must have suffered even before this event. How can people do this? How can they hurt such an innocent and beautiful child (she has the face of an angel). I know my daughter could never upset me so much that I would even consider something like this. Why does stuff like this continue to happen in this world?

Anyway, I am sorry to post such a downer post...but I just can't stop thinking about it. I didn't even know who to pray for when I watch this. I am just so appalled by some people's actions. It upsets me even more that these people will probably plead temporary insanity and live out a sentence in prison. They should be beaten with belts, drowned and their heads slammed into a tile floor. That would be the proper justice for their actions.

Do you ever notice that the news these days is basically one horrible story after the other? It's like this feeding frenzy to get the most salacious stories. I am reminded of the scripture, Philippians 4:8 - "Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things." It goes without saying that all these horrible stories could be reported in a general way, but I think the newsmedia thrives on getting the gory details...in other words, they aren't exactly fulfilling that verse. As Christians, clearly we shouldn't dwell on them, but continue pressing on to show others a better way...and maybe in doing so we may be preventing these horrible incidents from happening in our own circles.
