What next?

In the face of violence,
once again we gather.
We bind together, even though
emotions be a-lather.
In the the eyes
you can hear each voice;
to forgive and move beyond--
what a blessed choice.

Moving on--so powerful,
what resilient force!
God alone to vindicate,
let Him run His course.
For now, we have each other
with healing in our arms;
securely hold each other
through each and all alarms!

"Fear not, for I am with you
even in disaster.
Do not give place to vengeance
but cling unto your Master!
I see and know the perpetrators
and I have a Plan;
only reach out with compassion
to your fellow man."

Life happens.
Why do certain things happens?
Why do bad things happen to good people?
I don't know.  But I do know that God is right here hurting with us, healing us and inviting us to move on.
