Blog: Beauty from Pain -Virginia Tech

On April wed. 18 the students and staff had a memorial service after a boy took a gun and killed some of his fellow students and staff. Why? I am sure many of you are asking. The boy must have had somethings set him off. Of course, over time it all came out. One big thing I have to say is that this boy maybe had a hard life, and physiologically affected him. I also know that the boy was lost and messed up physiologically. Some of the videos I am sure many of you have seen however, evil I believe is right behind what happened. Evil corrupts so many things. Which is why you need to talk to God when you feel lost or confused. Certain things in our lives no matter what it is changes and affects us and who we are. Certain things happen to each of us but, it can makes us stronger. Now I know that what happened that day wasn’t a good thing at all but, there was good in that. There was certain people with certain gifts that helped people get out of the building. Such as the one teacher who survived the holocaust. Did you ever think that he survived the holocaust so that he may say the class? God does amazing things and sometimes we aren’t quite sure why but, maybe just maybe this teacher was meant to be saved from the holocaust to save his class. There is a reason for why things happen and why you are here. Why? Maybe the question why is not supposed to answered yet. Maybe we aren’t supposed to know until God wants us to know. Or maybe your like yeah but, I talked to him why isn’t he answering. Well, there are times where he isn’t going to hand feed us he gives us signs instead that get us where we should be. Where God wants us to be. I feel that this day will make a lot of you stronger. You can make it. There is still hope! Another thing is something like this brings people closer together. Sadly it took something painful to turn it into something beautiful. There might be some beauty in the pain after all. Just look for the good in things and I know it’s hard I am still learning it. I think though it’s a continuous process trying to find beauty from pain.

This article was based off the song from Super Chicks! Song titled Beauty from Pain! Here are the lyrics!

Lyrics: The lights go out all around me One last candle to keep out the night And then the darkness surrounds me I know I’m alive But I feel I like I died

And all that’s left is to accept that it’s over
My dreams ran like sand through the face that I made
I try to keep on but I just grow colder
I feel like I’m slipping away

After all this has passed
I still will remain
After I’ve cried my last
There’ll be beauty from pain
Though it won’t be today
Someday I’ll hope again
And I’ll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain

My whole world is the pain inside me
The best I can do is just get through the day
When life before is only a memory
I wonder why God lets me walk through this place

And though I can’t understand why this happened
I know I will when I look back someday
And see how You’ve brought beauty from ashes
And made me as gold purified through these flames


Here I am at the end of me
Trying to hold to what I can�t see
I forgot how to hope
This night’s been so long
I cling to your promise there will be a dawn
