Please join with me in thought and prayer
for the victims and their families
involved in the massacre yesterday
at Blacksburg, Virginia Tech.




On Eagles' Wings-Michael Joncas

And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His hand.

What a thoughtful thing to do~
My thoughts have been so with the families of those who have lost loved ones in this senseless tragedy~

I offer a prayer of comfort to them all~

Thank you for starting this thread.  How my heart goes out to the victims families as well as the roommates, classmates and friends who were such a part of their lives.  May our Lord ease their pain and help them go on in life with renewed appreciation and insight.

I wanted to add-
Anyone who watched the memorial service today
was able to hear poet Nikki Giovanni speak to the students,
as she is a professor at Virginia Tech.

Her presence and energy brought the room to a standing ovation
as she led them in a school cheer.

Needless to say this brought some much needed relief to the pain and tension,
and hope for the future.

I missed that, NancyLee and Nikki Giovanni is a favorite of mine as I chose her poem for a student of mine  in First grade to recite in February.

I join you in prayer

Adding my tears and prayers for strength, courage and eventual healing to all those left behind.  How is it that the human race does this sort of thing to itself?

What a sweet thought of a kind, gentle Enchantress!

Love

Thanking you once again for this thoughtful call to prayer~

One of my favorite quotes by Nikki Giovanni is -
quote:
"I really don't think life is about the I-could-have-beens.

Life is only about the I-tried-to-do.

I don't mind the failure but I can't imagine that I'd forgive myself if I didn't try."
May we all attempt to be an "I-tried-to-do"~

Families left to wonder why it had to be their love one.  May they lean upon God.
