The Tragedy of Cairns

We are all horrified at the incident in Cairns. People say this doesn’t happen in Cairns. Our mobs are crying and saying we don’t do this. What happened.

It was a family that was well-known and respected in their streets. reading Facebook people are posting their shock and some saying that in the last few weeks things seemed to have changed. The kids out later than they are allowed to a little bub on the veranda in the early hours of the morning.

So why didn’t someone step in and help. Why didn’t someone pick up on the signs and talk to the family.

Now we have a mum alive in what appears to be a murder suicide. She is going through hell. She must have been a bad place before hand. She must have been on the brink of that black hole. One little thing pushed her into the spiral descent into the abyss.

I pray for all those innocent children I also pray for that mum. When she realises what she has done and that she survived it. She is going to go further into that hell.

She needs our prayers and understanding, because she must have been in need of help and was let down in  not getting the help that was needed.

Lets not judge her harshly, lets look at the fact of a mum pushed too far and had no help and that she will be living with that for the rest of her life.

Lets hope families rally around member who are going through a hard time lets hope that their will be more understanding for mental illness, and especially lets hope their will be more mental health services available.

May God bless the innocent children and the angels guide them to his open arms.

May God bless and forgive the mother. and I pray she can overcome this.

Mental health is a serious issue and too often it comes to the attention of all of us via news reports. May God bless those and whisper in the ears of the decision makers to help change this.

Thank you
