In an email from a close friend today, "...Have you ever thought that life is just hard? I am thinking that this week..."
Yes, I am thinking this too.
This world is broken. The people in it are broken. The systems they created are broken and the damage goes on and on and on.
A compassionate friend in Los Angeles posted this on fb yesterday, and I keep coming back to it. At one point yesterday, I was staring into our backyard, crying about the brokenness of this world, the words in this clip filling me.
In the dark valley, this is somehow still true.
