And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
School room trailer separates
From all visual communications
Radio on at planning time
Keeping company, until it's not
The buildings struck, unbelief
Shrinks in reality's evil presence
Thoughts of family, hearts and minds
What are my children thinking, suffering?
How I long to be with them!
I pray as stunned students drift
Through door, craving comfort, calm
The peace passing understanding
I have no words to offer, to fill
The void created by wanton acts
Of malice, violence, hate manifest
Because I'm speechless; choose to listen
We hug, we cry, we freely vent
And everyone hears, grieves. Everyone
Because we need each other more
Than we imagined or intended
But God knew always, all along.
