she's just sleeping

today I was reading in Matthew, and came across this passage:

" 'Go away. [this is Jesus talking]. The girl is not dead, but asleep.' But they [the people in the house] laughed at Him. After the crowd has been put outside, He went in and took the girl by the hand, and she got up." Matthew 9:24-25

I thought of the women in the Red Light District here in Amsterdam when I read this. Those women are all someone's little girl. They're someone's daughter. And though it may look like they're dead, they're actually just asleep. Their souls need to be re-awakened. They just need someone to take them by the hand and help them get up again.

This makes me think of "Wake me up inside" by Evanescence.
