“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.”
~ Dalai Lama XIV
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”—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, I—and I believe I speak for everyone else here at elephant journal—send out all of our collective love, and best energy…to heal the hearts of those who need it most.
And, may these hearts not ever lose hope.
To all the beautiful souls needing love tonight—you have mine…and most unconditionally.
