How can we dare smile today
knowing all the souls being taken away?
Now I know we all must die.
And for some of us no one will be there to cry.
But the pain that seems to replace them
lights a fire. You can't let it erase them.
Some die from violence, some by chance.
Some die fighting disease and circumstance.
Parents outliving their innocent child.
Where can that devastation be filed?
And how can God justify
the baby born who never had a chance to cry...
We are told to always look on the bright side.
But tonight I reach into the darkness and remember those who've died.
My friend shared the painful story of her friend's daughter, Lola Faith, with me today.

I can't tell you how much I cried. In all honesty, I am a crier. I cry a lot. Some days it feels as if I have nothing to filter out the world's pain. But I can't imagine how her parents are feeling. Or any of the other parents who have ever lost a child. My prayers are with them.
Tomorrow, please join us in wearing PINK for Lola Faith, to support her family and shine some light of infant loss. Please tag anything with #PINK4LOLA. If you wish to make a donation to the Palmer family, please click here.
Whatever you do, please keep this family in your prayers.
