Dedicated to the Soldiers at Fort Hood and their families and may the injured recover.

Humbled By Darkness

In the aftermath of a tragedy,
so many lives taken or injured.

God washes our eyes with so many tears.
Fears that flow endlessly through our bodies.

As our saddened hearts weep.
We are heartbroken with this horrible and senseless
loss of innocent lives.

Surviving a war in foreign lands only to be killed
by friendly fire at home.

A sinister act of a villian.
A gunman, a Doctor, who heartlessly inflicted
death upon his fellow soldiers and friends.

Was this a Terrorist act or did he snap?
Perhaps we will never know!

We are helpless and hopeless as we stand here
in our world apart.
We are at a loss to make any sense of this terrible tragedy.

Time is standing still as if forever.
For this day will never pass from our minds.

Today the world weeps,
in remebrance and love.
For the passing of these Soldiers.
For they are Angels now in God's hands.

We are humbled by this darkness in the aftermath
of this tragedy.
