To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:Today is a new day.
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
We mourn the dead, we celebrate their lives, we honor their memory.
We offer prayers for those who lost loved ones.
We rejoice for those who survived.
We forget totally, henceforth and forever, the perpetrator of this heinous crime. Its name shall never be mentioned nor its photo shown in these environs. The MSM doesn't get it and never will.
Cdr Salamander says it very well. (As he so often does.)
Those we lost, may they Rest in Peace -
