Rain pours down
for a second year
at the OKC Memorial Marathon.
But life is all about
Do you see the blessing or the curse?
I choose the blessings.
I choose to see how love and goodness
will always triumph over evil.
I am here.
I celebrate my strength.
I walk in the darkness before dawn
on hallowed ground, replaying the horror of
the day it happened in my mind.
I remember how the world stopped that day in April,
and people dropped everything to help, to pray, to donate.
I honor in silence the 168 who lost their lives here on April 19, 1995.
I look at their empty chairs on the memorial grounds.
I hear the moment of silence end with these words:
“We Run to Remember
because love and goodness will always triumph over evil,”
and I say a loud, “AMEN!”
I count my blessings.
I refuse to feel sorry for myself because of a little rain.
I hold myself accountable….
and keeping the right perspective.
I count my blessings today
and through out my life.
Which do you choose?
Do you pay attention to
or the curse?
