Today brings more news in Boston. There are two suspects from the Marathon bombings and one died in a shootout last night. Many Boston residents are inside their homes as the city is on high alert while police locate the second suspect. The headlines cover newspapers and televisions around the world.
The world waits with a nauseous stomach.
Here is a poem I wrote this morning. This is christyb and my prayers go to the people of Boston xx
Read All About It
Read the headline and internalize it.
Take words from the news and
Work as hard as your paid job to
Include joy in your day.
All hail the joyful.
Watch the video of the deaths and
Understand the expiry of life is short
While the effects of killings
Extend for miles.
We look for ways to shorten the length of
Hurt we feel in our hearts,
Yet understand the healing process is
One slow breath of air
That requires more than a Band-Aid.
Let us exhale together.
Let us look at each other’s faces to
Examine generosity and affection
Rather than to focus on hate or
Let fear override our hearts.
Let us join hands as we pray.
