Boston and Us

On April 15th, 2013, the “new” safety in the U.S. was overshadowed by fear and uncertainty.

Of course we all live with the reality that life can change in the blink of an eye. Since 9/11, we get it. Being patted down by a stranger at the airport has become our norm. For the most part, these inconveniences have morphed into feelings of being taken care of.  My heart cries out to those the destruction literally harmed, and to those that were once again, psychically jerked into terror.

Collectively as a society, we must take a breath as no words can explain or make us feel better. Some people are run by their darkness, as my eight year old explains. What we can control, however, is how much darkness we hold living in an uncertain world. Don’t forget to focus on your light. Hold as much light as you can possibly pack into your psyche. Pack light for the society you live in, and especially for those who are struggling to find theirs at this time.

Love, breath, kindness and peace to all.
