We let it wake us up.
“Do not avoid contact with suffering or close your eyes before suffering. Do not lose awareness of the existence of suffering in the life of the world. Find ways to be with those who are suffering by all means, including personal contact and visits, images, sounds. By such means…awaken yourself and others to the reality of suffering in the world. If we get in touch with the suffering of the world, and are moved by that suffering, we may come forward to help the people who are suffering.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
My heart goes out to those who were affected by last night’s tragedy in Aurora, CO.
Let’s not look away from this.
Don’t shut your eyes to it and just think about happier things.
Our reaction to tragedy shouldn’t be to put on a happy face and carry on.
