This week has been hellish. We have been attacked, terrified, maimed – body and spirit – killed. We have been taken over by misfortune from Massachusetts to Texas and so many small unknown events in between.
Once again we have proven that we are resilient and one in our love of whom we are. Our differences have fallen away. We have helped each other, no questions asked, no criteria needed. We were people in need. It was the only door, flung wide open, to our humanity.
The media was careful and respectful. Eagerness for the “story” quickly braked and common sense prevailed. The blame game dissolved into the background.
Social media, so often a tool for harm, turned into a warrior’s sword for good. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, was a new battle cry. Evil was brought low by all of us.
Unification of effort.
People being happy watching others being happy became people with a weapon for truth. The eye of a camera, of a video, one person’s personal vision joined with the personal visions of others, showed the path to our attackers.
Yes, this week has been hellish but we became who we truly are during this hellish time. I'm feeling better today because we have all been reminded that we are the best. We are a country of people united by one goal of being the best we can be not only for ourselves as individuals but as a people united by the common goal of saving other and thereby saving each other.
