Church Is No Refuge From New Year's Eve Gunplay
"A FALLING bullet shot during New Year`s Eve celebrations has tragically killed a four-year-old boy.
The boy, Marquel Peters, was inside a church in Decatur, Georgia, playing a video game when he suddenly collapsed at his parents feet, WSTV reports. "
A reveler, full of drink and Lord only knows what else, celebrates the New Year by firing a gun into the air. Oblivious to the fact that he has killed a four-year-old boy, he probably spends the night with a sloppy blond who was delighted and impressed with his reckless abandon.
A family eschews drinking and debauchery and attends church on New Year`s Eve with their four-year-old, and you know how this story ends.
Write your own moral:
Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die?
Guns don`t kill people...
Party in the streets, not in church
