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.
