Virginia Tech Massacre
Who knows what pain, confusion, or despair causes someone to lash out to hurt and kill others? But, of course, all caring people are shocked and dismayed to learn of the Virginia Tech massacre. Prayers from around the world must surely now be with the VTU community and with the families of VTU students and faculty. For those who were killed - we give thanks for their lives and we bless their memory. For those who lost loved ones - we wish healing for their souls. For those who have had fear disrupt their lives - we hope that joy will return to them soon. And for a world where violence erupts so easily and so often - we pray for peace. May the angels of our higher nature prevail and bring hope and healing to us all. Amen.
