Just over an hour ago two bombs exploded at the finish area of the Boston Marathon. At least two were killed and many injured in the blast.
Shock. Bewilderment. Sadness. Prayers. Hope for a more peaceful world
It leaves us wondering: ‘What is this world coming to?’.
Road races. Elementary schools. Office buildings. Sikh temples. Grocery stores. Is no place safe? Has violence crept into every corner of our lives?
It’s so easy to feel hopeless. To feel like the world is a dark place and that violence and evil surrounds us.
But there is hope. There is goodness.
We are lucky to see it every day in the young people, teachers, families, and partners we meet in Unified Theater groups across the nation… Katie’s magical dancing she shares each day with her community and friends. Ms. K who spends hours on hours shining the spotlight on her students’ abilities. Stephanie who is a young activist for equality and social justice. The Goldfarb family who carries the legacy of their daughter by serving young people through the arts. Shane who’s creating impact through basketball. Ryan who dedicates his life to serving people of all abilities. Cate who’ll serve Boston youth in City Year next year. Mr. Gervais who enriches his students’ lives through music. Karen who uses her position at Starbucks to transform communities. And so many more…
These are the stories we must tell. Those of us unified in love, compassion, peace, beauty, and hope must be louder.
Spotlight love. Unify for peace.
