Tragedy leaks from one small place to touch an entire nation.

Our prayers are for the families who are suffering.

We offer prayers of gratitude for those young men who shielded others from harm, making the ultimate sacrifice, without any defense.

Our gratitude is for the first responders, who showed us all what a critical difference 90 seconds can make.  We’re grateful for the calm of those 911 operators.

We’re thankful for all the paramedics, firefighters, doctors, nurses, and other emergency  workers who had to deal with so much, in so little time.

We are thankful for the courage of those unafraid to raise their voices against violence.

We’re grateful for a community that comes together when wounded. In tragedy, we hold each other closer.
