SCHOOLCRAFT, Mich. -- The high school that missing teacher Theresa Lockhart taught at has issued a statement in the form of a poem.
Superintendent of Schoolcraft schools, Rusty Stitt, told FOX 17 Friday morning that the school had penned a poem as a sort of statement on the disappearance of Theresa Lockhart. Lockhart was a Spanish teacher at the high school.
Stitt said that school staff was wearing red Friday to honor Theresa. They have also hung up red ribbons around the school as a way to keep her in mind as the community waits for answers.
The poem was penned by Doug Martin, the English Department Chair at Schoolcraft High School.
We offer up our prayers today
In fervent, whispered tones
For all the sorrows and the fears
For all the dark unknowns
We seek for answers, yearn for light
To make the shadows flee
And hope and pray you may be safe
Held in the arms of He
Who watches over all of us
Who made the moon and stars
Who created every living thing
In this broken world of ours
Wherever you may be tonight
May He who knows all things
Bestow on you, His faithful child,
The peace that His Word brings
He knows our anguish and our trials
The secrets that we've kept
May we remember in our pain
That even Jesus wept
And so, dear friend, allow us all
As we for answers grope
To let the tears fall down like rain
As we all pray in hope
