Can you see
that beyond the silent stream of tears
prayers are reaching up like a rainbow?
Can you feel
that the sadness is being wrapped up
in soft fabric of support and compassion?
Can you sense
that beyond the shock and the fear
love is ready to nurture and heal?

It is the stories of the goodness of human nature coming from this tragedy that is supporting my spirit — so many horrific stories coming from an event that should be to celebrate the human spirit, Such a poignant photo and words.
Thanks Kat, I fully agree with you.
I so hate the part of human nature that kills and destroys – I love how you are able to weave in some hope too…
Thank you Melody – this poem was born from these very sentiments…
