RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Pastor Greg Laurie issues the following statement following today’s school shooting at a high school in Parkland, FL:
“Only three weeks after a fatal school shooting in Kentucky, our hearts are broken once again by news of yet another, this time in Broward County, Florida with multiple lives lost. We mourn with the parents and families who have lost their beloved children, and for the community of Parkland, FL that has just had its world turned violently upside down.
“Students should never be afraid to step onto their school’s campus, and parents should never have to see images of their children fleeing the scene of a shooting on the news. Let us pray for God’s comfort for all the victims and let us never grow tired of praying that these types of mass shootings will one day soon come to an end in America.”
