After 2012's Summer of the Gun, no one should express surprise that the first day of the new school year would experience a school shooting. That's how the copycat effect works.
The shooting occurred at Perry Hall High School (established in 1963), located at 4601 Ebenezer Road, Perry Hall, Maryland.
Ebenezar means "stone of help."
This was the memorial stone set up by Samuel to commemorate the divine assistance to Israel in their great battle against the Philistines, whom they totally routed (1 Sam. 7:7-12) at Aphek, in the neighborhood of Mizpeh, in Benjamin, near the western entrance of the pass of Beth-horon. Ebenezer is mentioned three times in the Bible.Source.
On this very battlefield, twenty years before, the Philistines routed the Israelites, “and slew of the army in the field about four thousand men” (4:1,2; here, and at 5:1, called “Ebenezer” by anticipation). In this extremity the Israelites fetched the Ark of the Covenant out of Shiloh and carried it into their camp. The Philistines a second time immediately attacked them, and smote them in a great slaughter, “for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen. And the Ark of God was taken” (1 Sam. 4:10). And now in the same place the Philistines are vanquished, and the memorial stone is erected by Samuel.
Synchromysticism does happen. Between 9:55 am and 10:17 a.m. EDT this morning, Red Dirt Report editor Andrew Griffin and I were discussing films. He said he had just watched Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. To which I replied,
Synchronicity strikes again: I just read the paper. The one thing that struck me was in the movie section. The only IMAX in Maine, ten miles away, which has been playing Dark Knight Rises since July 20, 2012, is mentioning a [new] choice starting September 7th. Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, on the IMAX. Interesting you should mention the franchise.
The "Lost Ark" noted in the first Indiana Jones movie is about the Ark of the Covenant, not Noah's Ark, as is often mistakenly recalled. The name Ebenezar is a direct link to the Ark of the Covenant. So why would Ebenezar, Ark of the Covenant, and Indiana Jones come into play, here and now? Is the Cosmic Joker pointing out attention to Israel-Iran, even in events like this?
The calls to 911 alerting the police to the school shooting at Perry Hall High School started coming in Monday, shortly before 11 a.m. EDT.
Today was the first day classes for the 2012-13 academic year at Perry Hall High School, located near Baltimore.
Update: The suspected school shooter is 15-year-old Robert Wayne Gladden, Jr., who has been charged as an adult with attempted first degree murder and first degree assault. He is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center. (For more on the "Wayne" middle name game phenomena, see here, here, and here.)
