The other night in Aurora, Colorado wasn’t about gun control, or the NRA. It wasn’t about crazy, or innocent.
It was about a nation, yet again, coming together around sadness, around heart, around compassion. If only for a moment, hate lost again: it turned a partisan, divided nation whole, again.
But, too, we must learn from our tragedies. We must not learn hate: we must not learn trauma. We must learn how to protect. We must learn how to let go. We must learn to keep our hearts open, and how to be strong enough to protect our ideals from our fear.
