    -i pray for the lives we have lost. my heart has sunk-

    today it rained bodies trying to escape the shattered windows of the smoke filled tower

    today it rained horrific screams and broken dreams
    today it rained terror in the crisp of the morning and blue of the sky and planes are not to fly for it might rain...again

    today it rained justice for the palestinian east for they rally "death to this beast America"

    today it rained sorrow from families and friends
    today it rained thoughts of forsaking sins

    today it rained a preview of what is about to be as fire rescuers walk through the debris of what could have been you or me..

    today it rained tears which have elevated in America to a flood of fears which will be remembered for years

    today it rained business files which developed into piles as pedestrians ran from miles away..

    today it rained broken rocks and glass while children attended class being unaware of the mass destruction

    today it rained hopelessness for tomorrow as earth drowns in tears of sorrow

    today there was a storm while it was yet warm and she did not know that it was his last time being in her arms..

    today it rained drops of the reality of getting our lives together..
    tomorrow who will know the weather???

    family,
    i proph(eye)sy, we proph(eye)sy that these are definitely the signs. God will keep those who fear and love him in times as these, trust..
    Our faith is being tried by the fire. will you come out as stubble or gold??

    pray for these people's family as our hearts are ripped by this tragedy..

    this one hit close to home

    i remember saying to my brother that certain things
    don't make any sense which is why i will forever
    remain SPIRITUALLY GROUNDED and EDUCATED

    i feel people have lost a sight of their personal
    values and ethics....

    selling themselves out through engaging in
    activities causing them to stray away from
    their virtue....


    *stay safe*

    J..your years are young..but your soul is old so wise...

    This forecast speaks of your humanity...you saw everyone..and you forced us to see ourselves amidst the ashes

    *Rain-Man*
