This past week has been a long hard one for the city of Boston and also for the nation. It has been a time of personal difficulty too as I experienced my mother's funeral. I see so much sadness in the news every day now, and it is easy to become angry and to hold bad feelings. I decided this morning, before doing anything else, I would take a deep breath and think of all the goodness; all the light that shines into my life.
As I turn to healing and forgiving, I hold the words of Martin Luther King, Jr in my mind and in my heart:
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
Feel the love! See the light!
