Hearts of Prayer

7.21.2012
Why did lives have to end, last breaths be taken in such a heartless way?
Sadness creeps in to my heart and chills run down my spine.
souls where broken and heart beats stilled at the premiere of the dark knight rises shooting.
My heart goes out to the victims.
I can not imagine the pain.
I cry.
I cry every time I see the grief stricken faces, the tears flooding down the cheeks of the those left to morn, the sight of eyes, filled with hopeless heartache and the horror stories the victims have to tell.
12 souls left this world.
58 suffer injures.
countless are grief stricken.
1 mans actions have caused pain.

It seems to horrible to be real.

the articles and videos steel my heart beat.
I want God to take away the pain and heartache from the victims.
As i try to think of comforting words, none come.
nothing about it makes sense.
why, why did it happen?
how can life just go on?
It will.
life will go on. 
are we to forget?
No.
I know it has reminded me how fleeting life is.
how this day may be are last.
 we must never forget.
we must remember.
we must trust in God.
and we must pray. 

PRAY. 
PRAY FOR THE VICTIMS.
PRAY FOR THE FAMILIES AND FRIENDS WHO HAVE LOST THOSE THEY LOVED.
PRAY FOR THE PARAMEDICS AND DOCTORS HELPING THE HURT RECOVER.
PRAY FOR THE POLICE.
PRAY FOR THE SHOOTER
PRAY.

So remember.
thank God for everyday
 and pray.
hugs
Em

  4. Good words indeed. The the event strikes me with a sickening feeling sometimes and the temptation is to fixate on death and become crippled with the fear of a sudden end, but these words carry the reminder to turn that awareness to a productive purpose. Who knows but that many souls may be saved as a result of the 12 taken.
