The setting is in any one of the high-crime areas of several major U.S. cities. The time is approximately 10:00 p.m. A loud, sharp bang gets everyone's attention. A young child turns to her mother and asks, "How many gunshots is that we have heard tonight?"
"Two or three."
"Mom, do you think maybe somebody got shot?"
"I don't know baby. I hope not."
"Why do people have to get mad and shoot each other?"
"You know the answer, sweetheart."
"I know, it is because of sin. But I still don't like it."
"I don't either! But when people turn from God, bad things happen. Do you remember when we read about Noah and the ark in the Bible?"
