The Psalms
91

Abiding in the Shadow of the Almighty
  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High
        
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
  I will say of the LORD,
        
He is my refuge and my fortress:
my God; in him will I trust.
  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler,
        
and from the noisome pestilence.
  He shall cover thee with his feathers,
        
and under his wings shalt thou trust:
his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
  Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night;
        
nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
  nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness;
        
nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
  A thousand shall fall at thy side,
        
and ten thousand at thy right hand;
but it shall not come nigh thee.
  Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold
        
and see the reward of the wicked.
  Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge,
        
even the Most High, thy habitation;
 
there shall no evil befall thee,
        
neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
 
For he shall give his angels charge over thee,
        
to keep thee in all thy ways.
 
They shall bear thee up in their hands,
        
lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
 
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder:
        
the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 
 
Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him:
        
I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
 
He shall call upon me, and I will answer him:
        
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him, and honor him.
 
With long life will I satisfy him,
        
and show him my salvation.

THIS PSALM WAS READ TO MY FATHER AS A YOUNG BOY, HE CARRIED IT IN HIS HELMET DURING  W.W.II

In Memory of

WHY LIGHT A CANDLE ON JANUARY 8TH?

Today, Jan. 8, 2012, we will join with thousands of Americans to light a candle in remembrance and honor of the six killed and 13 who survived the mass shooting in Tucson, Ariz., exactly one year ago.

We will also stand in solidarity with, and light a candle for, the 32 Americans and their families who were killed the day after the Tucson shooting, the 32 who were killed the day after that, and the 32 who are killed every single day in our country on average.

Nearly five years ago, while sitting in his French class, Colin was shot four times and became one of the vast number of Americans whose lives have been changed by gunfire, including mothers, fathers, daughters and sons, toddlers and grandparents. They come from big cities, such as Chicago and New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. and they come from small towns, such as Cartersville, Georgia, Spring, Texas, and Blacksburg, Virginia.

Colin was fortunate to survive his wounds and walk again. But every day, too many others are not as fortunate. They are murdered, they are killed unintentionally, or they commit suicide. It is in their memory that we will light candles today.

So we ask you: Will you light a candle for someone you have lost to gunfire?

Will you light a candle for 1 of the 32 Americans killed by gunfire every day in our country?

Or perhaps you'll light a candle for one of these Americans who have already been shot in the New Year:

Will you light a candle for the Mt. Rainier Park Ranger recently shot and killed while working a traffic stop in Washington?

Will you light a candle for the 12-year old boy shot in the head by celebratory gunfire on New Year's Eve in Florida?

Will you light a candle for the 81-year old grandmother shot and killed while watching TV in Ohio?

Will you light a candle for the three people murdered by a U.S. Navy Pilot, who then committed suicide on New Years Day in California?

Will you light a candle for the 11-year old boy who got shot in the stomach while in his home in New York?

Will you light a candle for Christina Taylor Green, the 9-year old girl whose young life was cut short in Tucson, Arizona?

If you will light a candle, please visit www.toomanyvictims.org to find out where you can attend a candle-lighting ceremony from over 60 locations in 22 states.
