Tragedy in Aurora: Now the Healing Must Begin

Guardian Staff

In light of the tragic events unfolding today in Aurora, Colorado, a message of healing and hope must begin. From the entire staff here at the Guardian Express, we would like to extend our love and condolences to the family and friends of those who were victimized in this brutal and unprovoked attack.

All of us here at the Guardian have family, whether they be mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, and grandchildren, and upon arrival home this evening at the appointed hour, we will take solace in knowing that our loved ones are safe and sound, and hug them a little tighter, love them a little more and send our thoughts and prayers out to those wounded and fallen in Aurora in their time of sorrow.

Therefore we feel a few words of comfort and love are apropos.

Psalms 23:4: Yea, thou I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.

Lennon and McCartney “Let It Be”:
When I find myself in times of trouble Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be

And in my hour of darkness She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be

Let it be, let it be, Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the broken hearted people Living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be

For though they may be parted There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be

Yeah there will be an answer, let it be

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

Let it be, let it be
Ah let it be, yeah let it be

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the night is cloudy There is still a light that shines on me
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be

I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be

Yeah let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah let it be

Oh there will be an answer, let it be

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah let it be

Oh there will be an answer, let it be

Let it be, let it be
Ah let it be, yeah let it be

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And finally Footprints:

Footprints in the Sand

One night I had a dream…
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and
Across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;
One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before us,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
There was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life
This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
You would walk with me all the way;
But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life,
There is only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why in times when I
needed you the most, you should leave me.
The Lord replied, “My precious, precious
child. I love you, and I would never,
never leave you during your times of
trial and suffering.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.”

ONCE AGAIN, FROM THE OWNERSHIP AND STAFF OF THE GUARDIAN EXPRESS NEWSPAPER, TO THE GOOD PEOPLE OF AURORA, OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES.

TIME HEALS ALL WOUNDS.

MAY THE GOOD LORD BLESS AND KEEP YOU. AMEN
