We Will Run and Not Grow Weary

To those ravaged by evil, by earthquake, by flood, by pestilence, by terrorism, by death, by disease, by persecution, by famine, by dictatorship, by war, by natural disaster, by crime, by fire, by wind, by rain; behold, take heart for there is a healer.

As difficult as it is,
This is how we cope…
This is how we respond…
This is where the healing begins…
