Prayer Is The Cure... Why Not The Prevention?

Some eight in ten Americans,
Believe that prayer saved Gabby’s life,
Though many tears were shed;
The bullet could have broken up
But stayed one piece of lead,
And so did far less damage
As it passed through Gabby’s head;
It missed the major arteries,
And so although she bled
She did not die from loss of blood—
To hospital they sped;
In merely days she showed the signs
While lying in her bed
That Gabby’s health was coming back,
Not hanging by a thread.

So, praying was the answer.
But the comment left unsaid:
If God did this, why not just make
The bullet miss, instead?

Damn. Just damn.

Well, duh. Obviously no one had time to pray in the time between him pulling the trigger and the bullet hitting her.

But Ridger, prayer is retrospective 'cause God knows *hushed silence* everything.

This is proof from incomplete devastation (#36 on this list). Christina Taylor Green and others may be dead, but at least Giffords survived.
