Man in a Santa Suit Kills at Least 8 at a Party

The New York Times reports on another senseless killing, and this time the tragedy involved not only children but a killer who dressed as one of the most symbolic representations of Christmas - Santa Claus.

What's saddening is the nightmares and trauma of those who survived, and the re-living of this event on the day the world celebrates the birth of Our Savior Jesus Christ. May we all pray for strength for the survivors, mercy for the victims who died and forgiveness for the killer.

I really can't imagine having a tragedy so closely associated with Christmas...the Tsunami of 2004 comes to mind
