Expectations

Did I really expect the world to stop turning?

To stop and pause for one life in the wake of hundreds of thousands?

No. But just as all those families have, we will stop.

We will pause and remember a life cut short,

That could have been so much more.

We are all grieving. Everyone of us.

Reckoning with what is a chance. A chance to be more.

To understand more, to have more compassion,

To live in a way that honors our loved and lost,

That honors the best of who we are as human beings on this fragile planet.

May all who are grieving and suffering be blessed.

May we all find our true path home.
