Waking up this morning to news of another mass shooting, it is difficult to focus on anything positive.  People went out for a night of entertainment and many are not returning.  Words like senseless, tragic, and horrific just don’t convey the emotion one wants to convey.  There are times when words fail us.  Still, words help provide respite, provide some warmth, some dim light to allow us to find a comfortable corner until it seems safe to venture out again.

In search of that this morning I came across this from Max Ehrmann’s Desiderata:

“Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.  With all its sham and drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.  Be careful.  Strive to be happy.”
