I have FAITH
that almighty God will protect us and keep us safe, not let us down in any way, and help us to seek and speak The Truth.
I have HOPE
that our new heroes whose lives were taken too quickly and in tragedy, will help us, who are left behind, to consol, comfort, heal, rebuild, protect, safeguard and to help us seek and speak The Truth.
I believe in JUSTICE;
that our heroes have not died in vain, that their heroism and The Truth will set us free.
I believe that PEACE
will arise from the rubble, turmoil and grief because of our collective steadfast FAITH, our collective trusting HOPE, and our collective wise JUSTICE.
FAITH, HOPE, JUSTICE AND PEACE, AMEN.
