What separates us from the animals, what separates us from the chaos, is our ability to mourn people we’ve never met.”
― David Levithan, Love Is the Higher Law
Life waits for no one nor does death discriminate. In a matter of minutes, our lives can change forever.
My day began, like many, with “breaking news” from Las Vegas. That is never ever a good thing sign to see when you turn on the morning news. I then saw thousands of people together, enjoying an open-air concert. I then realized too many of those innocent souls lost their lives. Once again, families and friends are left with the unimaginable job of trying to put the pieces of their lives together without those lost.
As I was struggling to find words to describe the emotions flaring in my heart, we received a phone call from a dear friend. She asked to speak to us both. As my heart raced, my first thought was she or her husband had a family member at that concert.
That was not what she called to share with us. What she told us was just as dire.
Another friend is seriously ill with a very poor prognosis. They are still in the middle of testing but the early diagnosis is scary.
I know I have a super powerful prayer group here in my circle of friends. Please add this family to your prayers. They are overwhelmed and feeling lost–a feeling shared by many right now.
May God bless us all.
I thank you and love you all.
