I feel a profound sense of loss, despair and anger as I ponder the long term, usually lifetime, consequences and aftermath of acts of senseless violence - both for survivors and the families of those lost.

I’m grateful that I have the self-control to turn off the television and limit my personal exposure to repeatedly witnessing the trauma and grief of others.
I often turn to this song … ironically these lyrics about silence remind me that I do have control over myself and the power to choose loving and peace - centered behavior - both personally and professionally.
“Somewhere we know that without silence words lose their meaning, that without listening speaking no longer heals, that without distance closeness cannot cure”. Henri Nouwen
Until next time, wishing you peace in all you do,
