They Have Earned A Place In The World To Come

A mother in Belize City, Belize has taken the lives of three of her four children. Sources say the children ages 1, 2 and 3 were killed by drowning. A fourth child, age 6 is reported to have escaped. What could have driven the young mother to take the lives of her children? 

Nobody knows what she was feeling. It could be that she was suffering from postpartum depression which is a serious illness. It's time that we confront the dragon, mental illness in Belize!

When a tragic killing like this occurs, immediately lines are drawn between the "good" and "bad". It is important that we take a few moments to fully get a grasp on what actually happened. A lot of us are asking how could a mother who maybe looks normal, do this to her own children?

Rather than jump into a great debate let us pray for her, for those who are crying, and the souls of the departed little children. They have earned a place in the world to come.

"Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because dawn has come."
