Friends, Family, Readers, Strangers . . .
My heart is breaking. I’m certain many of you are sharing this same feeling.
Helplessness, anger, fear, shock.
In times of despair and sadness the only thing I can think to do is write.
There is no understanding tragedy.
I can’t find the lesson.
It’s all I see, it’s all I feel.
We are all being called to action.
To love harder.
To fear less.
To stand as one.
To rise up against the hate.
To be kinder to one another.
To show forgiveness.
To cherish every moment, no matter how big or how small.
To not forget.
To honour those beautiful lives that were lost.
I’m not sure where this is going to lead for me but I feel forever changed by the events of these past couple of days.
I feel less trusting, I feel more fearful . . .
for the future
for our children
for what is to come
I will only love harder.
I will only be kinder,
I will only show more forgiveness.
and I will only continue to pray for a brighter future.
Sending all of you light through these dark days.
Together we can choose to love over fear.
