Today I Pray

On days like today, I pray.
I pray for the victims of senseless violence.
I pray for those who lost their lives.
I pray for the families, friends and communities of the fallen.
I pray for the families of the shooter(s) who must endure the loss of a loved one and the repercussions of their actions in the public eye.
I pray for answers to unanswerable questions like how and why.
I pray for those who committed these acts.
I pray for them because we are all capable of both good and ill.
I pray for them for whatever reason ill won out on this day.
I pray for them because they failed to recognize the light of God in us all.
I pray for the strength not make the same mistake by refusing to recognize it in them.
I pray for healing and recovery for survivors and families of all involved.
I pray for healing and love to enter the hearts of those who may plan further ill in the future.
I pray for love to win out in all things on this day and every day to come.
I pray for no more days like today.
Amen.
