Este pasado Domingo de Todos los Santos, veintiséis santos, que van desde unos meses hasta setenta y dos años de edad, se les robo sus vidas inesperada y violentamente cuando un pistolero abrió fuego en medio de la adoración en la Primera Iglesia Bautista de Sutherland Springs, Texas. La pequeña congregación ha perdido un número significativo de sus miembros, incluida la hija de catorce años del pastor y varias generaciones de una familia, que perdieron ocho miembros por causa de la violencia. La pequeña y pacífica comunidad de Sutherland Springs, en cuestión de segundos, perdió el 4 por ciento de su población, y no hubo nadie en esa ciudad no fuese afectado por la maldad del pistolero.
