Church garden, Boston, MA.
As we all breathe a collective sigh of relief for the city of Boston this morning, I count myself amongst the millions of good people on the roller coaster of emotions such an atrocity forces us to ride. While I’m angered and appalled that so much pain, heartbreak and havoc can be wrought by just two individuals (choosing not to use other words that come to mind) I’m also humbled and enormously grateful for the brave battalions of men and women putting their lives on the line to keep us safe every day. An impossible task to be sure, but incidents like this surely place our vulnerability under a magnifying glass tenfold. My thoughts are with the citizens of Boston, a beautiful city I visited just recently, and my heart aches for all the families of the victims. The horrific images I’ve seen the past few days both permeate and steel my soul. They serve as a somber reminder that evil can lurk anywhere, even in the most joyful of places, but the indomitable and indefatigable Forces of Goodness will prevail.
Just witness the streets of Boston today.
We’re on the winning team
and we shall never surrender.
Spread the love this weekend.
