Why this week?

What is it about this week? Unspeakable violence dwells at April 19th, and knows its neighbors by name, as I've blogged before (yes, I've been doing this blog thing for a while, regardless of readership).

April 19, 1993. Seige at Waco ends with 81 deaths.

April 19, 1995. Oklahoma City. 168 dead.

April 20, 1999. 13 victims dead.

Now this. April 16, 2007. Nearly three dozen dead in Virginia.

We live in a broken world. But God is good, and triumphs evil even when we can't understand.
