The tribute Vase

This vase is different. Let me describe it. A crystaline base with colored lights around inside the rim. Equally spaced are four small jets of water that are located between the rim and the lights. As the short bursts of water are released it gives the impression of a floating rainbow. Floating in the pool are small flowers. In the center is a crystal clear vase being held by praying hands.

Into this vase go the white roses, one for each victim of the rampage at the Salt Lake City mall. The lilies floating in front are for the families of the victims. Surrounding this crystaline vase is a red velvet pad. It is here that all may kneel to pray for both the victims and the families.

Very moving tribute, Ron. How sad that we have to live in fear anymore whenever we leave the house. Sometimes even when we are inside what we think is our haven. May God bless all of the families and friends who lost loved ones in this terrible tragedy.
