(Today in the funeral for three of the victims of the Quebec City mosque attack, Prime minister Trudeau said, “It is with a heavy heart that we come together this afternoon to grieve the loss of these innocent lives. But as a community and as a country, together we will rise from this darkness stronger and more unified than ever before — that is who we are.”)
Bullets suddenly reigned,
Blood splattering thicker than rain,
In the peaceful Mosque
Where the innocents were slain,
Canada shattered in grief and pain,
Candles in the thousands led our noble way,
Through icy cold darkness Love prevails!
—written for the people murdered in the Quebec City Mosque, for Canada, and for Humanity.
