I had another post prepared for today. Then ISIS attacked Paris, France. My blog seems so much smaller than normal. My words do not seem big enough, deep enough, or strong enough to ease the trauma that is becoming more of a constant happening along with terror.
There are no apologies from the people who took credit for the attacks.
There are no explanations other than “We told you this would happen,” and “This is only the beginning” from an army of well-funded extremists.
I have no words soothing enough to comfort the people who mourn the loss of mothers, fathers, family members, children, and friends as they go to a dark bed tonight and every night after this.
I can only say that I am sorry for people’s loss as my heart aches for their pain.
My heart aches because there are people in the world that think human life is expendable, human life is worthless, and that it is acceptable—even within their rights—to kill others. I have no answers as to why this is happening more and more. I do not know how to stop people from recruiting more young people who feel “lost.” I do not know why armed forces and expertly trained security cannot seem to stop them. I can offer no answers.
I will not preach. I do not want to talk politics or blame. Something in our world is broken. What can we do to fix it? I can talk about forgiveness, but will that create the change we desperately need?
This is not an easy answer, for this is not a simple problem. While smarter people than I go into rooms and make deals and plans and try to solve this problem, I will offer a blog hug, as I have done before. I am calling on the Law of Reciprocation, and I have faith that we cannot out-love God (or the Universe, or Source). Simply hug me back, and keep it going! Spread love as far as you can, as much as you can Click To Tweet. 🙂
My heart aches, but it knows love. Stay safe, my Cupcake friends, and know that you are loved!
