dusting off this ol’ space of mine today, with a very heavy heart. between all of the natural disasters and pain in the world, my heart is broken. i can hardly put into words how i felt this morning reading the news about Vegas. it saddens me that someone is hurting so much that they made the choice to hurt others. it saddens me that innocent human beings had to experience such terror, let alone in a place that was intended for joy. most of all, it saddens me that so many were there that i know and love dearly.
i’m not sure why my heart is so heavy to get on here today and pour my heart out. but, it is. so here i am, trying to remind everyone that there is hope. even in all the darkness, there is hope. i truly, truly believe this. as the great MLK once said, one which my dad is constantly reminding me of: “darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that”.
so, i guess i am trying to say, let’s be light. let’s drive out darkness. let’s put good back into the world. for each other. for our children. for ourselves.
i don’t know why these things keep happening but, all i can do is pray for a brighter future.
i love each and every one of you.
