Prayers all around
There are a lot of people who need that kind of comfort right now, thanks to this awful development. The front page of CNN.com says:

Two girls, both under 10 and described as best friends, were today found killed in a wooded park near a small Illinois town. The area coroner said Laura Hobbs and Krystal Tobias died from "stab wounds" but were not sexually assaulted.
What could possibly cause someone to stab two little girls to death, aside from abject evil?

Furthermore, what does it say about our society that the death of two pre-pubescent girls has to include the phrase "[they] were not sexually assaulted"? I really wish we could live in a world where that could just be assumed. Sigh. Sometimes the news can really bum you out.

My condolences go out to the families of these two girls, and I pray to God that He helps deliver justice to whomever perpetrated this despicable act.
