Why? Why are the innocent punished? Why the sacrifice? Why the pain? There aren’t any promises. Nothing certain. Only that some get called, and some get saved. She won’t ever know the hardship and grief for those of us left behind. We commit these bodies to the void, with a glad heart. For within each seed there is the promise of a flower, and within each death… there’s always a new life. A new, beginning. Amen.
