The gunman who went in a deadly shooting at the LA Fitness in Collier Township, Pennsylvania has been identified as George Sodini of Scott Township, PA, USA. It appears as if George Sodini plotted the attack in an online diary kept with hate-filled words.

At around 8 PM, August 4, 2009, George Sodini entered the LA Fitness gym, turned off the lights and began shooting the women at the gym’s aerobic center. There were between 60 and 70 people inside the gym at the time of the attack. According to reports, George Sodini killed four people and injured 15 before killing himself.

I took off today, Monday, and tomorrow to practice my routine and make sure it is well polished. I need to work out every detail, there is only one shot. Also I need to be completely immersed into something before I can be successful. I haven’t had a drink since Friday at about 2:30. Total effort needed. Tomorrow is the big day.
Unfortunately I talked to my neighbor today, who is very positive and upbeat. I need to remain focused and absorbed COMPLETELY. Last time I tried this, in January, I chickened out. Lets see how this new approach works.
Maybe soon, I will see God and Jesus. At least that is what I was told. Eternal life does NOT depend on works. If it did, we will all be in hell. Christ paid for EVERY sin, so how can I or you be judged BY GOD for a sin when the penalty was ALREADY paid. People judge but that does not matter. I was reading the Bible and The Integrity of God beginning yesterday, because soon I will see them.
