Of a thousand men who have come and gone
Now we grieve 'cause now it's gone
Things were good when we were young
In some ways the holes in my heart still feel as large as those twin holes in the ground.
In other ways, those holes have been filled with knowledge and love.
As terrible as that day was, I am grateful for the positive changes it has brought.
Like today's gospel (Luke 15:1-32) that tells us of the lost son who has been found.
