So much tragic shit going on everyday. I sometimes internalize all that and it becomes overwhelming. Not my cross to bear, but when ppl are suffering how do we keep it moving? Mostly, I pray for the masses. Sometimes I just step away from the media. Thankful for a supportive family. They offer that safe space to discuss and vent. Tonight though, I rest my head with a heavy heart.
Is there such a thing as too honest? Too much disclosure?
Praying for Boston and those connected to the tragedy. My uncle runs that marathon often and my folks usually cheer him on right where the explosion took place. He didn’t run it this year. Man, that could have been my ppl.
