It’s been a difficult day for more than one reason.
However, it’s enormously heartwarming to open up the laptop with a sense of resignation and see my newsfeed full of nothing but love and empowerment. Love in the face of death. It reminds me that, as I’ve aged, I’ve chosen better friends.
My thoughts are so wholly on the suffering and courage of other people tonight. Love, like energy, never dies. It just changes form. And sometimes applying a violent force to love just causes it to explode and cover everything it can touch. It is Newton’s Third Law of Motion.
For my brother and his beautiful wife.
