Carrie Underwood, Husband Talked To Sons About Nashville Shooting
The city of Nashville and the world continues to mourn for the victims of the Nashville school shooting at Covenant Christian school in Nashville that occurred on Monday (3/27), killing three students and three staff members.
Carrie Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher, talked with their young sons about the shooting, as Mike shared on Instagram last night (3/30). Fisher posted, “This week has been one full of emotions! I can’t even imagine the devastation for the families with kids and staff at covenant and to those who lost beautiful children and loved ones. My heart breaks for all of you! I’m so sorry! We are praying for you!”
He continued, “The other night, we talked to our boys about what had happened. They have good friends that attend covenant school. Explaining this to children is hard, but I think it’s important. Isaiah’s first question was why?? Why would someone do that?? I tried to explain to him that sometimes we will never know why, but we have evil in this world, and really bad things can happen.”
He added, “We told him that God loves us and that Jesus, his son, is the ONLY answer and hope we have in this broken world. It was a reminder that the most important thing we can do is point them to Jesus and show them what following him looks like because we never know when our time here on earth will be up! I pray this brings us all closer to our savior and that we boldly point people and our loved ones to Jesus because that’s what matters most!!”
Mike closed his post with a scripture, “John 16:33 – ‘I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.'”
Many fans and friends responded to the post, including one who wrote, “Well stated. Prayers for you all and your community.” Another person commented, “Thank you, Mike. The interaction with your children is so powerful and needed in this world of uncertainty… standing up for Christ is challenging these days, but we must build a firm foundation with the courage to share in our lives with those around us. God bless you and your family. We love you so much.”
