VA Medical Center—Tampa, FL

 

This pandemic is pathetic.

To make sense

of all the innocent lives

that have died
in this time,

we have to ask God

to be on our side to carry on.
We have to show compassion

for one another

to come out of this together.
Pray for the families

who lost their dear loved ones.

Ask God to comfort them

in this time of suffering.
As Americans,

we have to try to be resilient

and stay strong like we always are.
Always pray

for all the frontline workers

to give them strength,

enough strength to keep going on

as their job is extremely hard.
Remember, when you start to feel sad,

there is one that is always near.

Just pray and ask Him to help you

with what you cannot bear.
