You meditate on and synthesize every strand of this tragic story with truth, wisdom and reporterly breadth. I'm circulating it to my friends as the most accurate commentary I've read so far. I too have been grieving deeply for Audrey's parents. It could have been any one of us Christian mothers/fathers.

A "digital liturgy". Perfectly accurate.

Great read.

I first saw another writer use it, but it's definitely appropriate here.

Brilliant Bethel, I've avoided reading much about this because it is too horrific. However, your piece addressed the larger picture, a more complete picture of the lives lost, the policemen, the shooter and her parents, the cultural narrative and evil in our midst. I feel the emotional body blow and I'm trying not to weep. I've been following Jordan Peterson's take on transgender surgeries on adolescents, and, not surprisingly, the instant pro-trans hysteria after this nightmare was expected. Yes, this is war and evil is on display. As always, after reading your articles, I am thankful for your efforts and your willingness to deal with such difficult subjects. God bless you.
