WILLING TO FACE IT
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Pastor Martin Niemöller
Our hearts and fervent prayers go out to victims of the horrific terror attacks which took place in Nigeria, Beirut, Paris and Mali. May God comfort the hearts of their families, friends, loved ones, and all those who were affected as a result of these various attacks– as only He can.
To show human compassion at someone else’s loss is simply heart-warming; and as deep calls to the deep, it brings forth the same response in others who witness it.
We may look different on the outside, though we are people of various backgrounds, cultures, races and creeds, we can all connect with the simple word 'care', which can be clearly expressed in the actions of people. This is not business as usual neither a cover up with clear presence but an expression of self-less humanity.
May justice prevail and the peace of God reign here on earth.
