That some good can be derived from every event is a better proposition than that everything happens for the best, which it assuredly does not. ~James K. Feibleman
There have been a multitude of events recently to remind me that the world is not always kind.
It is easy to head down the path of "why"
Sometimes I am (too) quick to remember that someday it will be my turn.
Someday tragedy will be mine,
because everyone experiences tragedy sometime.
Today after listening to numerous stories of survival, of sadness, of strength...
I asked myself but what would those people whose lives ended 10 years ago tell us...
I think they would say: LIVE!
You can crumble under the weight of the situation (whatever your situation is)
Or you can persevere.
A lofty task in the world today.
A lofty task indeed.
