Forever Changed VT

          
My niece, Shannon, shared this song on her blog that a friend had shared with her.  It was written by guys who went to Virginia Tech.  Check out their website to hear the song:  http://www.myspace.com/theseasononline.   Here are the lyrics:

On just an ordinary day,
A weapon drawn, and lives forever changed
One act of violence made the world stop and watch
And on a drillfield by candlelight we prayed

And with questions on our minds, we wonder where the future lies
As we look up to heaven with hope in our eyes

Where do we go from here?
Can we overcome this fear?
And find a healing for the pain, and see the sun beyond the rain

We've got the strength to endure,
And soon we'll feel more secure
In a world filled with hate, we've got to become something great

Oh God, send your mercy this way, for we're all Hokies today 

And to the ones who fell that day
In our hearts your love will never fade away
We're picking up the pieces to build a better tomorrow
We'll find a joy, to move on from the sorrow

By the colors of the leaves, you know God has us on his mind
So we look up to heaven with hope in our eyes

Where do we go from here?
Can we overcome this fear?
And find a healing for the pain, and see the sun beyond the rain

We've got the strength to endure,
And someday we'll feel more secure
In a world full of hate, we've got to become something great

Oh God, send your mercy this way, for we're all Hokies today

The spirit lives on, don't let it be gone, let it shine forever
And through the heartbreak, for the lost and their sakes, let it bring us together. 

Where do we go from here?
Can we overcome this fear?
And find a healing for the pain, and see the sun behind the rain

We've got the strength to endure,
And soon we'll feel more secure
In a world full of hate, we've got to become something great

Oh God, send your mercy this way, for we're all Hokies today.

Hang in there, Hokies!
