Like a Phoenix Rising from the Ashes
By Mike Buettell, San Juan Island
” The streets of Heaven are too crowded with angels today.” All of us grieve for the families of the Paris terror victims and the passengers of the downed Russian airliner. Our tears flow and our pain is massive. Yet in the aftermath of these tragedies we as a world are more unified toward the war on terror than ever before. Russia, China, France, Britain, and the U.S. will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes of grieving and pain to become resolute and unified in our quest for freedom, liberty and human dignity. Yes, the streets of Heaven are too crowded today, but those who died will not have died in vain. We will remember them; and we as a united world will defeat the terrorists in the end.
