|For the loved one who go on before us|
Today to be able to sit here in soft golden morning light seems almost prayerful. I review the photos of those we lost, see again how many bodies were recovered. I re-read the stories of the watery nightmare that swept in & took so many of our people away: men, women, children. Old & young.
All of them our loved ones.
Sadness. Grief. Anger.
Relief & joy for our loved ones who were safe. Anxiety & prayers for loved ones unaccounted for.
Much has changed since that morning.
A memorial has been erected. A siren system has been put in place. We mourned our lost families & friends.
Much has remained the same as it ever was.
The resiliency our people have in the face of defeats, crises & natural disasters remains the same.
We go on. We live on. We love on.
That's just the way we are.
With Love & Delicious Living On,
