The response of the older sister to one of the 9-year-old victims of the horrific shooting that took place at a Nashville Christian school is one of the most heartbreaking things you’ll ever hear. The comment happened during a vigil for the victims that was held on Monday evening. If you can keep from just breaking down into pure weeping after reading this, well, you’re either made of steel or you have no soul.
“The older sister of Evelyn Dieckhaus, a third grader who was shot at The Covenant School, made the comments during a vigil for the victims at Woodmont Christian Church. Dieckhaus, along with two other children and three adults, was murdered at The Covenant School, which is affiliated with the conservative evangelical Presbyterian Church in America,” the Daily Wire reported.
“I don’t want to be an only child,” she stated during the vigil.
That is absolutely heart shattering. How evil does a person have to be to carry out an attack like this against another human being? The transgender shooter did not bother to think of the families she’d destroy with her vile actions. Or, and this is really disturbing, she did, and that’s what made her want to do it. Maybe she wanted to make Christians suffer for not accepting her twisted, perverted way of life. Transgenderism is a mental disorder. It should be treated as such. Not with hormone blockers, testosterone, or gender mutilations, but with therapy to help individuals accept the body they have.
“One local woman, Sarah Drury, who said she taught both Dieckhaus sisters in Sunday school at Woodmont Christian Church, wrote an online tribute for Evelyn,” the report continued.
“One of the 9-year-old victims of the Nashville school shooting goes to my church,” Sarah Drury, a Sunday School teacher at Woodmont Christ Church, stated in an online tribute. “Her name is Evelyn Dieckhaus. She was adorable. I taught her equally angelic big sister in Sunday school.”
“Her mom Katy volunteered in our children’s ministry … such a sweet Christian family,” she went on to say in the tribute. “We had a prayer vigil tonight at our church. We are, the whole city, saturated in grief. Now. It’s time to marry prayer and grief with action.”
The folks who run Covenant School said they are “shattered” by the tragedy.
“Our community is heartbroken. We are grieving tremendous loss and are in shock coming out of the terror that shattered our school and church. We are focused on loving our students, our families, our faculty and staff and beginning the process of healing,” the school remarked in a statement.
Other churches in the Nashville area also put on vigils in order to pray for the families of those who died during the shooting.
“It has been a hard day,” Woodmont Baptist Church senior pastor Nathan Parker said about the shooting. “We are sad. Sad for the families who came rushing to our church. Sad for those whose lives will never be the same because of the trauma inflicted on them. Sad because we live in a world broken by sin, suffering, and death.”
Pastor Paul Perdue of Belmont United Methodist Church put on a vigil, saying, “We need to step back. We need to breathe. We need to grieve. We need to remember. We need to make space for others who are grieving. We need to hear the cries of our neighbors.”
It’s important to note the shooting came the same week that a group of radical transgender activists called for a “Day of Vengeance.” The group in question is headed up by a former Democratic Party staffer, raised money in order to provide firearms training for members, along with specifically calling for action in the city of Nashville.
Police also found a manifesto belonging to the suspected shooter, though, as of this writing, no exact motive for the shooting has been revealed.
