“What separates us from the animals, what separates us from the chaos, is our ability to mourn people we’ve never met.”  David Levithan
Sunday 12 June 2016
I am grieved over the loss of life today in Orlando.  I had several blog posts in the queue for today, but couldn’t bring myself to hit publish with words about food, creativity or personal growth as if it was just another day.  Words seem empty today; silence is worse.
It doesn’t matter that I don’t personally know anyone in Florida.  Today we grieve for the rift in humanity.  The situation is tragic and in the face of hate, we must speak love.  We must live into love. My prayers are with the families and friends and helpers.  My prayer is with the world.
