President Donald J. Trump has ordered that the American flag is to fly at half-staff in honor and remembrance of the victims and families of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Flags are to be flown at half-staff immediately until sunset, Monday, February 19th, 2018.
I pray for all those affected by this tragedy. Here are a few Bible verses to help during tragedies:
