Crying. Pain. Anger. Prayer. Hope. Love. When human life is ripped from the earth through the actions of the sick and hurt, we, each in our own way, go through a cycle of emotions that never makes sense and never brings back people who were stolen. It never feels good. It never totally heals. It never is resolved.
So why does it happen again...and again....and again.
We stop talking about it. We allow time to diminish the feelings. We "move on" from the emotions. This is a mistake. We can't. We, those left reeling to find enough love in our soul to share with the world, have to bottle up the feeling, the energy, the emotion so that at any point can find ourselves deep in that pain again. We need to harness that energy now so that tomorrow, or one week, or one month, or one year from now
we can engage our love to eliminate this hurt in our world. No one else is going to do it.
WE MUST TAKE CONTROL.
We must be the catalyst for change if we expect it to be better.
Mourn. Heal. Grow. Standup. But DO NOT forget the pain you feel right now.
You will need it. You will use it for good. You will alter the world as we know it. It will NOT be easy. It will NOT happen overnight. It will NOT eliminate the inevitability of humanity's darkness. It WILL save a life. It WILL embrace someone in your powerful love. Your work WILL be a beacon of light when someone desperately needs it.
WE WILL SUCCEED.
We have to. No one else but you and I will do it.
So keep talking about it and let's change something in the name of GOOD!
