Words fail me. I go online and images of violence assault me. On social media, people shriek and pray and condemn. All the world is tumult and noise, when all it needs is silence and stillness.
Close your eyes. Take a breath. This is not the new normal. The events in Brussels will never be normal. They should never be considered normal.
Close your eyes. Say a prayer. Speak with your heart, not your mouth. Let your mind go quiet and still. Take a breath. Offer up your pain and sorrow and sympathy to God. Exhale.
Close your eyes. Take a moment. Be silent and still and grateful. Hug your loved ones. Be strong and kind. Be patient. Be truly human.
