Monday, Monday, Monday! Let’s see what’s going on in the news, shall we?
Jeeeeeeeeebus. Shooting on the Auburn campus in Alabama, leaving three dead and three wounded. It was at a party, apparently, and as I write this, they still haven’t gotten the suspect. (CNN)
Abdul Baset Sieda has been named as the head of (part of) the opposition bloc in Syria, where there continue to be massacres and “unrest.” (CNN)
Oh hey! Mexican drug cartels are moving into small town America! (CNN)
Colorado fires have grown to 8,000 acres. (CNN)
Creflo Dollar, a megachurch pastor in Atlanta, was arrested for domestic violence. His daughter wanted to go to a party, and things got physical. It sounds like they got pretty bad, with him allegedly trying to choke her. Ugh. Come on, Christians. Be more Christian. (CNN)
Oh. This article says that the megachurch preaches that God rewards faithful people with tons of money, which makes me think that it’s not a very good representation of Christianity. Do you think his last name is really Dollar? (CNN)
Spain is getting $125 billion in loans to help it from falling apart. I’m worried about Europe. (BBC)
Technology is making cleaner water possible in Africa, which is super cool. (BBC)
At least five people were killed in a church blast in Nigeria, and there appear to be many other casualties. Ugh. (CNN)
I’m going to come out and say it: I think tightrope walking over Niagara Falls is a stupid thing to do. (NPR)
That’s it for now, chickadees. Be a force for good in the world.
