Our spirit grieves.
People ache at the terrorism, the escalation of economic consequences, the racial discrimination and inequity, the religious persecution, the political rhetoric, the misogyny, the emotional / physical and spiritual damage done by hatred.  Our spirit grieves.

What to tell the children who experience and have experienced danger and fear?  What to tell the elderly who wonder if their lives were in vain? What to tell those of any age who are confused and live in fear?

May we have a glimpse of hope for the future. May we feel inexplicable, unconditional Love in the midst of our pain. May we focus on the Good that unites us and not that which divides, even as our spirit grieves.
