Like the rest of you I am deeply saddened by yesterdays events in Boston. I often question a lot of things in the world when such senseless acts of violence take place. If there is a God, how could he allow this to happen? Why does such suffering have to occur? Why yet again are we watching on the news such chaos and horror ? Why does this continue?
There are two things that things ring true in my mind: One, that there in fact is true evil in this world. That runs through the veins of ppl for whatever reason. Sometimes they were victims of evil, sometimes there is no explanation as to why they've chosen this path. Two, that if there is indeed true evil, then there is indeed true good. A light so pure and peaceful and a hope so bright and good that we cannot let an a t of aggression and violence let us loose all faith in humanity.
The Boston Marathon is about pushing yourself, defying odds, overcoming obstacles and the sheer strength of the human spirit. I truly believe that as horrible it is that evil exists in this world, there is also the hope in it that good exists also. And it is far more powerful, all encompassing and beautiful.
In the face of such tragedy I ask of you this. . .
That We as a people will not feel despair caused by the horrendous violent acts of a few, but find comfort in the world full of people who gather around those affected by these events . We will embrace them physically and mentally. Through prayers, support and love we will get through yet another horrible event and move forward.
Like those runners, we will be stronger as a world pushing ourselves forward, with strength and determination to make this world a more peaceful place.
All my love Xoxo
