For those at the Boston Marathon

“I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit.” ~ Dawna Markova

    1. We live in a world of uncertainty, where even the most innocent can’t live without the worry of something like this. I use to think that there was a basic reverence for life that was universal and that some, our children, would never be targeted. But now after Newtown and this, I don’t know anymore. This is such a tragedy.

  1. There are those who would argue that there is no such thing as good and evil. That morality can’t, or shouldn’t, be taught because we have no “right” to tell people how they should be in the world. And then something like this happens. How could anybody argue this is anything but evil? The tenuous hold our society has on its moral compass makes this sort of thing possible. … Thank God for all the wonderful people who stepped up on scene to help. But why must it always take a crisis, a wake up call, for people to see how we need each other, and God? … I hope everyone concerned will get the help they need to process this event. And I hope the perpetrators get a wake up call of there own. … Be well … Dorothy

    1. Thanks Dorothy. I agree. When we take the discussion of “good and evil” out of the philosophical realm and put it into the life we all live, the reality is persuasive, isn’t it.
