tragedy and violence are too common. today was no exception. it grinds down on one’s spirit. it cannot be made to simply go away. however during these dark moments the light of hope can be relit. find a focus and remember what is good. remember kind and loving acts of people who will not be forgotten. turn off the noise and step away from darkness. there are many reasons and guides back into the light. i hope we all find a focus any one that works and leads however slowly back into the light. reflect, relight, and help someone.
