I hope we don’t ever forget what this date means.

It means we live in a world that is evil, but it’s not ruled by the evil one.

It means we have to be prepared for another tragedy, but we will not live in fear.

It means thousands of people were killed in the name of hate, but we cannot let reciprocal hate consume us.

It means that my God is still sovereign, throughout all time, in all situations, even in the midst of destruction.
