2 THE SEASON ~ FOREVER CHANGED (WE’RE ALL HOKIES TODAY)

3 LyricsLyrics On just an ordinary day, A weapon drawn, and lives forever changed One act of violence __made the world stop and watch As on a drillfield by candlelight we prayed On just an ordinary day, A weapon drawn, lives forever changed One act of violence made the world stop and watch As on a drillfield by candlelight we prayed With questions on our minds, we wonder where the future lies So we look up to heaven with hope in our eyes

4 Where do we go from here Can we overcome this fear And find a healing for the pain, and see the sun beyond the rain We've got the strength to endure, And soon we'll feel more secure In a world filled with hate, we’ve got to become something great Oh God, send your mercy this way, for we're all Hokies today We've got the strength to endure, And soon we'll feel more secure In a world filled with hate Oh Godfor we're all Hokies today

5 Verse 2: And to the ones who fell that day In our hearts your love will never fade away We're picking up the pieces to build a better tomorrow We'll find a joy, yes, to move on from the sorrow By the color of the leaves, you know God has us on his mind So we look up to heaven with hope in our eyes And to the ones who fell that day We're picking up the pieces to build a better tomorrow By the color of the leavesyou know God has us on his mind So we look up to heaven with hope in our eyes

6 Where do we go from here Can we overcome this fear And find a healing for the pain, and see the sun beyond the rain We've got the strength to endure, And soon we'll feel more secure In a world full of hate, we’ve got to become something great Oh God, send your mercy this way, for we're all Hokies today

7 The spirit lives on, don't let it be gone, let it shine forever And through the heartbreak, for the lost and their sakes, let it bring us togetherfor the lost and their sakes,

8 Where do we go from here Can we overcome this fear And find a healing for the pain, and see the sun beyond the rain We've got the strength to endure, And soon we'll feel more secure In a world full of hate, we’ve got to become something great Oh God, send your mercy this way, for we're all Hokies today

To commemorate and end the memorial, the bell was sounded 32 times. Though the ceremony was “over”, they never stopped praying, but simply raised their candles higher.
