A knock on the door,
a visitor to celebrate a new life.
Another precious soul brought into the world.
Only this visitor had different intentions.
In a matter of moments,
our celebration of life would quickly turn into their celebration of death.
Another family destroyed.
More innocence stolen from our children.
It seems all too familiar.
Helplessness settles in.
Why would you let this happen again?
Why do you let your children suffer?
There is no way to explain.
There is no way to rationalize.
The question is not ‘why’.
The question is ‘what’.
What can I do?
What can WE do to honor the fallen?
What can WE do to create light in this sea of darkness?
now that would be our greatest loss.
What are YOU going to do?
There is no strength like the strength of our people.
There is no perseverance like the perseverance of our people.
We are hurting.
We are devastated.
We will not be broken.
We will not be defeated.
What can I do to bring light into this sea of darkness?
