Pray for Paris

This is my reflection of what happened in Paris. I understand many other things happened yesterday as well. We should pray not just for Paris, but for the whole world. Thank you to those who helped and gave me feedback!

People watch comfortably from the safety of home

Reserved, staring blankly, hearts breaking

Astounded on the attack on all humanity

Yet unable to comprehend the harsh reality

Forgetting commitments, we watch our screens

Over and over again as the replays play

Remembering suddenly that we need to pray

Purposefully we want to help those affected by this event

Although what can be done from so far off?

Readily we volunteer, our wallets we present

Instead we realize money does not cure mortality

Suddenly we realize life can be fragile in reality
