Requiscat


It appears likely that little Aisling Symes, the missing toddler, is dead.

What a broken, and horribly dark world we live in; a world where little children die.


O God who madest this beautiful earth, when will it be ready to recieve Thy saints?
How long, O Lord, how long?

George Bernard Shaw, "St. Joan

For these things do I weep ; mine eye, mine eye
Casts water out ; for He which should be nigh
To comfort me, is now departed far ;
The foe prevails, forlorn my children are.

John Donne "The Lamentations of Jeremy"
