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
