    My heart goes out to Mr. Greene's family as well as all the other familes who lost loved ones in this horrible tragedy. All of you have my most sincere condolence and I pray that God helps you through these hard times. The country is praying for all of you. This country has to get serious about the crime that is taking over and it is time politicians get serious about stronger gun control laws to prevent these terrible tragedies from happening over and over too often in this country. And family and friends who know someone is mentally ill, should be obligated to seek treatment for them to prevent such tragedies or be held accountable.

    After having breakfast this morning and reading the paper about this tragedy, I went to an adjacent parking lot that was selling christmas trees then had a vision from the Holy Spirit who told me to write the following: Have the Nation erect a secure, landscaped Christmas Tree Park with 26 trees planted in circle, each for one of the victims; and place a gazebo like structure in the middle of the Christmas Tree Park with a stage and 26 benches out in front. In the center of the gazebo, there should be a strobe/LED light; strong enough to beam through the rooftop for all the world to see; symbolizing the need to pray for peace and the end to violence; while honoring all of the victims. It should be lit for 26 days and then on the 27th day a celebration/commemoration should be given, with Mr. Greene playing the park's theme song on the dedication of the park itself. Be it known the following two verses:

    Revelation 22:2 ESV
    Through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

    Job 14:7 ESV “For there is hope for a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that its shoots will not cease."

    If you believe: advocate for the Christmas Tree Park to be built and pray for it's completion. Pass this message on! Humbly Put, JSCosio
