We Grieve Together

A human hand holds a fraying, spooled piece of red silk

As the news cycle brings us images of terror and heartbreak once again,
We grieve together
As each of us faces into this new level of horror,
We grieve together
As we remember other moments of pain, fear, and loss,
We grieve together

Yearning for an end to violence and suffering,
We grieve together
Yearning for a true peace where all feel safe and whole,
We grieve together
Yearning for greater justice, compassion, and wisdom,
We grieve together

In the shadow of violence we remember we are all connected in love
We grieve together
In the shadow of violence we recommit to working for a better world
We grieve together
In the shadow of violence we find comfort and courage in each other
We grieve together
