Description

My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those lost in this tragedy. Words are not enough to heal wounds or to make up for the great losses of these beautiful lives. As I watched this story unfold on the news, I couldn't get all of yall in Blacksburg off of my mind and heart. I believe God gave me this song to bring a message of hope to all the Hokies at Virginia Tech and to encourage everyone to march on as one. The power of the human spirit is truly amazing. I hope that there is a Hokie among yall who will discover a melody to go with these words so that a beautiful tribute will arise.

We March On

So many deaths
In such a short time
The grief and the heartache
Is burning inside
Beautiful life
Has been taken away
We stand here in shock
In utter dismay

We march on as Hokies
We march on as one
Though this great tragedy
Won't soon be undone
We cling to each other
United we stand
Hokies move forward
Hand in hand

The sun has gone down
On many young lives
And ended the stories
That were filled with good times
Their memories we honor
For their families we pray
And march on as Hokies
To brave a new day

We march on as Hokies
We march on as one
Though this great tragedy
Won't soon be undone
We cling to each other
United we stand
Hokies move forward
Hand in hand

We cling to each other
United we stand
Hokies move forward
Hand in hand

In memory of all those lost on April 16, 2007
