God will heal us in our time of need

How do we go on? How do we even start to turn it around? How do we cope with tragedies like the shooting deaths of Krystle Dikes and Rachelle Godfread? The world in which we strongly believe in is moving so quickly that one can never understand, but all of us are here to lend a helping hand.

We reach out to you with such sad and broken hearts, not knowing what tomorrow will bring. We must gather as one and take every minute to realize life begins, life ends, life is short; we must all always remember to protect, respect and love all people in good times or bad. We all must pray for our world to change, for all of our children need to grow up and enjoy the simple little things.

Our hearts may be broken now, but our prayers and love go out to the families of such a traumatic act and we will heal, for God will lend you his hand. God will change this world to be a better land and lead us to a place where we will one day understand. God will wipe your tears as they fall and God will never let you go.
