  • Column: Time for action, not just prayers, to end shootings at U.S. schools

    I am writing in response to Joseph C. Hinson’s Friday column headlined “Agonize, pray, repeat: School shooting routine never changes.”
    I disagree with his repeated statement: “This is who we are now, America.”
    I believe this is where “they” want us to be. There is a solution to what is going on, and guns in the wrong hands – or any weapon – is the problem. Prayer is the answer.

    The game was actually stopped in the fourth inning, and early thoughts were to finish the game Thursday night when York made a return visit to Lancaster to finish the week’s mini-series, but the game will go as a York win in League V baseball play.
