i got this from my sister this afternoon
and i didn't know how to answer right away.
i've been very, very affected by the tragedy this weekend.
so much so that i am hardly able to function.
it feels so wrong of me to feel this way
because it didn't happen to me.
it's almost selfish of me to feel this pain when so many are directly affected and feel so much more.
but i feel it.
it's so difficult.
i mean... just writhing in pain.
i don't need to understand anything.
no one ever will.
but i have my answer to my sister's question.
there is more good in this world.
sometimes Evil just shouts over all else,
so much louder
and it demands to be seen
but then it runs out of breath
and Good keeps humming its tune...
it's steady, beautiful, constant tune.
and when Evil shouts,
Good is there to soothe.
you just have to look for it.
what a powerful thought.
