We had a terrible tragedy in Athens, Georgia this weekend.  A UGA professor shot and killed his wife and two others at a picnic for a local theater group.  He is now on the run and a nationwide search for him has been launched.

The victims were Marie Bruce (his wife), Tom Tanner, and Ben Teague, whom I personally knew-- a kind hearted, self sacrificing man who dedicated his life to Town and Gown Players and to the Athens performing arts community, and who gave his life trying to stop Zinkhan from hurting those he loved.

Please pray for the Town and Gown community.  Please pray for the victims and their families.  Please pray that George Zinkhan is safely apprehended.  And most of all, please pray for the children of George Zinkhan and Marie Bruce, who lost their mother, and now their father, and whose lives are forever changed by their father's terrible actions.

May their memory be eternal!!!!  May God's LOVE, MERCY, and COMPASSION rain down on those poor children and on the friends and loved ones of Marie, Tom, and Ben.
