Another unthinkable tragedy.
More lives taken too soon.
Unbearable loss that dims the sun and casts the stars down from the heavens.
Questions spin madly through the darkened sky,
Why? Why? Why?
A symphony of mourning.
The sound of hearts breaking.
Enough tears shed to consume the Earth.
There should be no place for evil.
Fear and grief become one beast,
Crushing us until darkness is all we know.
But in the face of this seemingly impenetrable darkness, there is hope.
There is faith.
There is kindness.
There is love.
There is humanity.
There is you.
You can shine out into the darkness.
Wrap gentle arms around the broken world and heal it as best you can.
Be the light,
And others will be lit by your insistent flame.
