Breaking Point

Standard

A horrific crime recently occurred in the state of WV where four people were shot dead and the shooter ended up taking his own life.  My question is how does someone reach a breaking point in life and do something this severe?  Our minds can be very powerful and conjure up a great story, if we let them.  Our minds can even provide complete justification for the story. Now there may be some truth to the story, but our minds seem to magnify it.  To control our actions, we must be aware of what we are thinking.  Because our thoughts can take us for a ride.  Most importantly, we need to realize that not all of our thoughts are true, even though they are a part of us.  We need to ignore the negative thoughts and focus on the positive ones.  My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all involved in this incident and hope they quickly recover during this difficult time.
