a candle for georgie…

by bam

phone rang a little while ago. asking for more than a prayer. there’s a little guy, his name is georgie, he’s 9. he is fighting for his life tonight. his mama, a saint among us, is an old dear friend of mine. she’s at his side at children’s memorial as i type. she and his papa, another saint, are keeping watch. georgie is an angel, surrounded by saints. he’s been struggling his whole life long. most recently, most unfairly. if you kneel down tonight, whisper his name in your prayers. if you don’t kneel, please whisper his name anyway. they could use a flicker of light in their darkness.
