"When words fail, what have we left?"

"In the face of the unimaginable, we find our humble words of little consequence, and we presume to offer none today. The Bainbridge Island Review asks readers simply that as you turn to this page, please observe a moment of silence, reflection and prayer, for our nation and our world. "
