People mourn and pray during a candlelight vigil after an explosion tore through a fertilizer plant on April 17, 2013. The explosion leveled buildings throughout the small town of West, Texas and killed 15 people, injured at least 200 more and damaged 350 homes. The explosion occurred after a fire broke out in the plant.

“How long, O Lord? Will You forget me for good?
    How long will you hide Your face from me?
How long will I harbor cares in my soul
    and sorrow in my heart by day?
    How long will my enemy loom over me?

Take note and answer me, O Lord my God!
    Brighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death.”
