Today, like you, I awoke to the news of the
tragedy that took place in Japan over night. In just a few minutes
lives were changed forever.
I could only imagine their heartache, as feelings of empathy
washed over me. Yet the gratitude that I felt, because
my family, was safe in their beds, did not escape me.
I wanted to hold them close, and tell them that
I loved them, and then tuck them safely under
my wing. But they were still asleep.
So, I gave softly placed kisses instead.
As I write this, it's morning there now.
Life is already moving on.
Sadly, in time, for those far removed, it will be old news.
I hope to never know the sorrow, and pain they feel.
I hope you don't either.
