Beyond tears
Voices silenced by shock
Waves of disbelief
Tumble over and over

Beyond belief
Words echo uselessly
Sorry, so sorry
Murmured over and over

Beyond comprehension
Minds shutting down
Help—hold on
Whispered over and over

Seems like turning on the television means dealing with tragedies. Unfortunately, many of our woes result from our own arrogance. Other days, the delicate dance we choreograph with nature turns into chaos. Survivors slip into heroism automatically because of the basic strength and goodness within each person's capacity.
