Bone weary, I heave a deep breath and prepare to move yet another soul from this life to the next. These days, I have no time to honor their passing. All I can manage is a short prayer of redemption before I move on to the next diseased body at hand.
It’s been a long year and there is no bright end in sight. Our briefing 5 years ago was to prepare for this, but none of us thought it would come down to this travesty of death. We believed goodness would prevail and it would never come to pass. But God could no longer ignore the foreboding signs, for man’s free will was running rampant.
Now, faith is gone, and day bleeds darkness. I should be more positive, but reading what I have just written I now believe even angels can lose hope.
