    You say you see no hope, you say you see no reason
    We should dream that the world would ever change
    You’re saying love is foolish to believe
    ‘Cause there’ll always be some crazy with an Army or a Knife
    To wake you from your day dream, put the fear back in your life…

    Look, if someone wrote a play just to glorify
    What’s stronger than hate, would they not arrange the stage
    To look as if the hero came too late he’s almost in defeat
    It’s looking like the Evil side will win, so on the Edge
    Of every seat, from the moment that the whole thing begins
    It is…

    Love who makes the mortar
    And it’s love who stacked these stones
    And it’s love who made the stage here
    Although it looks like we’re alone
    In this scene set in shadows
    Like the night is here to stay
    There is evil cast around us
    But it’s love that wrote the play…
    For in this darkness love can show the way

    So now the stage is set. Feel you own heart beating
    In your chest. This life’s not over yet.
    so we get up on our feet and do our best. We play against the
    Fear. We play against the reasons not to try
    We’re playing for the tears burning in the happy angel’s eyes
    For it’s…

    Love who makes the mortar
    And it’s love who stacked these stones
    And it’s love who made the stage here
    Although it looks like we’re alone
    In this scene set in shadows
    Like the night is here to stay
    There is evil cast around us
    But it’s love that wrote the play…
    For in this darkness love can show the way

    Peace,

    Milton

      Yes. peace, and forgiveness and hope and love.
      May the blessing of God rest upon the wounded in body, mind or spirit, and on those who tend and care for them and minister medical help.
      May salvation come to those who caused the injury, whose hearts are full of rage and grief and injustice, who have not hope nor love nor mercy.
