My Beloved Beantown

BostonTearI’m so saddened by yet another unnecessary tragedy. Sometimes I wish I could crawl into a hole when these things happen, but I am so drawn to the media. Are we becoming too desensitized to these events?  Watching from our comfortable living rooms, did this really happen, or was I watching a movie? I’m so afraid of feeling nothing.

I’ve come to realize that being so far away from these incidents in mind and body makes me want to be more in touch with those who have experienced it….. to feel their hurt, their pain. The world is real out there, and getting involved when things like this happen by donating time, blood, and funds is great. But there is one thing that would make all the difference …..love.

Love one another. I know, roll your eyes, it sounds so simple. But imaging if there was no hate, only love. Just imagine… it would set you free.
