All I can do is pray – We Remember Them…

I cannot make sense of something so senseless as the school shooting in the Connecticut elementary school today. My heart is so heavy. All I can do is pray.

If you can’t make out the prayer in the image above it says,

We Remember Them…

In the rising of the sun
and in its going down,
We remember them;

In the blowing of the wind
and in the chill of winter,
We remember them;

In the opening of buds
and in the warmth of summer,
We remember them;

In the rustling of leaves
and the beauty of autumn,
We remember them;

In the beginning of the year
and when it ends,
We remember them;

When we are weary
and in need of strength,
We remember them;

When we are lost
and sick at heart,
We remember them;

When we have joys
we yearn to share,
We remember them;

So long as we live,
they too shall live
For they are now
a part of us as
We remember them.
