looking for hope...
We are grieving. We mourn for the loss of our people. We are at a loss how to explain it. We feel like we will never be the same. Hope is all we have to hang on to.
We find hope in the many heroes of the day – the young intern who stayed with his boss until medical personnel could get to her, the husband who lost his life saving his wife, the four who sprang into action preventing even more chaos, doctors, paramedics; there are so many. We find hope in optimistic reports from doctors. We find hope in the many memorials of candles and flowers that have sprung up all over town. We find hope that as life goes on, as it always does, that we are all a little kinder, a little more understanding. We find hope that underneath it all, Tucson is, indeed, love.
Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. We still need them.
