This week in County Cavan a father killed his wife, his three children before killing himself.
He left a note, but it will never explain why he could put his wife and children through such horror.
They were both school teachers.
Everyone is numb with shock.
Sadly this kind of thing is becoming more frequent.
In New Mexico there was the most horrific murder I ever came across a 9 year old girl on the eve of her 10th birthday was injected with crystal meth raped killed and dismembered, her mother and the mothers boyfriend are accused.
We have to be more aware of the evil that stalks our land.
Say a prayer as you wait for the green light for the innocent lives taken from us.
