A Life Uncommon

I have, as no doubt everyone has been, unsettled, devastated. rocked to my core by the violence and tragedy that has been visited on hundreds over the past few weeks, and many thousands over the past several years. And if that isn’t enough to make me want to pull the covers up over my head there are still more thousands of people walking to freedom with only what they can carry, being turned away at borders, and living in refuge camps with little shelter, food, sanitation, medical care. And winter is no longer coming on, it’s here.

It seems that there are hundreds of people writing eloquently about these issues, but I find that I am at a loss for words. My sentences all seem to end in tears. So I offer this instead, a reminder to love each other and only this will bring peace.
