In the aftermath of Saturday's assassination attempt that came within an eighth of an inch from likely ending the life of former President and presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, a flurry of questions and controversy have emerged over security lapses at the Butler, Pa. campaign event, with particular scrutiny directed at the Secret Service, which observers say has been infiltrated by left-wing ideologies that have taken its focus away from its primary duty of protection.

It was just after 8 p.m. on Oct. 14, 1912, when former President Teddy Roosevelt - seeking a nonconsecutive third term- was exiting the Gilpatrick Hotel to go deliver a speech at the Milwaukee Auditorium. Then, a former saloonkeeper, John Schrank, pulled a Colt .38 revolver just about five feet away and shot Roosevelt in the chest. The bullet was blunted by a folded-up 50-page speech and a thick eyeglasses case.

There may be a day in the distant future when we look back on the field in Butler, Pennsylvania and wonder if this is where everything changed. As it is, Americans woke up Sunday morning to a very different world. In the aftermath of Donald Trump's literal brush with death, campaigns, Congress, even political conventions seemed secondary to the deep horror at what we've become as a nation. And for once, after years of being at each others' throats, a sober country has stopped to reflect: Is this really who we are?

They say, "hindsight is 20/20," and really, only time will tell just how Thomas Matthew Crooks's attempt to assassinate former President Donald Trump stirred (or hardened) the hearts of the American people. It would seem the immediate reactions are a mixed bag. In the most tragic of circumstances, some have heinously wished the bullet that grazed Trump's ear had taken his life. On the other hand, and arguably in the majority, are those who are indescribably grateful Trump walked away alive and well. These same people deeply sympathize with the family and friends of the man who "took Trump's bullet," Corey Comperatore.

A field director for Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) was fired over the weekend for a social media post endorsing future attempts on Donald Trump's life, after he survived an assassination attempt at a Saturday rally in Pennsylvania. The incident offers a troubling glimpse on the health of American civil society and the prognosis for further political violence.

Have you ever wondered why it is that pride seems to be characterized as one of the worst sins? I mean, aren't all sins equally horrendous in the eyes of a holy God? Murder is tremendously awful. Theft can have catastrophic repercussions. Adultery tears apart marriages and families. So, really, what's a little pride when compared to these things, right? Except, biblically speaking, God hates pride. And as some theologians have pointed out, "There is no sin that is more frequently, more emphatically, and more eloquently condemned in Scripture."
