Pray for Boston

“If nothing saves us from death, may love at least save us from life.”      – Pablo Neruda

find beauty knowing that while tearing us apart, tragedy forces us together

Tragedy will blow through our lives like a tornado, uprooting everything, creating chaos.  You wait for the dust to settle and then you choose.  You can live in the wreckage and pretend its still the mansion you remember, or you can crawl from the rubble and slowly rebuild.  Because after disaster strikes, the important thing is to move on.     – v. mars

The world is broken is so many ways, when you look at the large scale it can seem hopeless and impossible to change.  We must find in the moment, the strength to realize that each of us has power, we need only dare act. The people of Boston proved their strength today as they banded together to help the wounded. The world keeps Boston in their prayers tonight, but bear in mind that for many, a street bombing is regular part of daily life.  At some point, collectively we need to stop and ask ourselves if the path we are on is the right one.  We can fool ourselves into believing that life gets easier, but you would be wise to accept that from the moment you are born you can be certain of only a single thing; that one day you will die, everything that lies between is up to you. Hold yourself accountable, be the change you wish to see in the world.
