“True, debates rage about politics and terrorism and racism, and Facebook streams scream with opinions and rhetoric and rage, and headlines burn with all this unimaginable and it all scalds our hearts,  and the world feels mad.

And on the margins, we touch our own wounds that no one sees, we trace the outlines of our own unspoken broken — but we rise. We all rise. 

Together we all rise. 

We can laugh right in the face of hopelessness — because we are held right in the arms of God.”
