“There is a saying in Tibetan, ‘Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.’ No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that’s our real disaster.â€ť
I’m not yet ready to comment on the tragedy of this day.
I think there will be many comments, perhaps too many…the ‘How could this happen’s’ and ‘What kind of monster could do just this’s”â€”though that dialogue may become an integral part of our healing, I pray that as these hours unfold, we will all move forward towards a true and compassionate understanding.
But for now, Iâ€”and I believe I speak for everyone else here at elephant journalâ€”send out all of our collective love, and best energy…to heal the hearts of those who need it most.
To all the beautiful souls needing love tonightâ€”you have mine…and most unconditionally.
