Fort Hood shooting victims
« on: November 05, 2009, 05:30:30 PM »
I just learned about the shooting on the grounds of Fort Hood military base. Seven people are said to be dead and 20 wounded.

Lord, have mercy on all involved, and Memory Eternal to those who lost their lives!

I just read about it, too.

Lord, have mercy!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord, have mercy.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

Lord, have mercy. Its up to 12 dead and 31 wounded.

I work with our wounded troops around the country and I can tell you that the level of stress is incredible.  The London Times called the situation at Fort Hood "Emotional Carnage" before this incident even occurred.  I can attest, that is the case with the families of our combat troops.  Please pray for them, and reach out to any soldiers and veterans you know.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I spent two years in the Army stationed at Ft Hood and working in the Darnell Army Hospital where the killer worked.  My prayers are for the souls of the departed, thier loved ones, and those who are in the process of recovery.

Oh Lord, Save thy people and bless thine inheritance.
Grant victory to the Orthodox Christians over their adversaries.
And by virtue of thy Cross preserve thy habitation.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let the pereptual light shine upon them.  A hymn, O God, befits Thee in Sion and a vow shall be repaid thee in Jerusalem.  Hear, O God, my prayer; all flesh shall come to Thee.

Memory eternal!
