today as they mourn the loss of
Corporal Nathan Cirillo,
killed yesterday in Ottawa.
Terrorism is leaving no country untouched
Praying for Corporal Cirillo's family,
and for the proud people of Canada.
I remember sitting in tears,
watching the television when the United States
was under attack in 2001.
That feeling of helplessness,
the feeling of uncertainty,
it's a scary place to be.
Hold on to the faith that all will be well.
Hold on to God.
And hold onto each other.
