I had another post planned for today, but I felt I couldn't be silent about the things on my heart. I'm sure by now you've heard about the Manchester attacks, & any time a tragedy like this happens I think my brain fails to recognize the full depth, because it's so fixated on the why. Why are there such horrible people in this world, who take innocent lives & not bat an eyelash? I don't believe for a second God lets it happen, so how is it done? 

Some of my happiest memories, the times I've felt most alive, have been when I'm singing along with thousands of strangers that become friends for the night, captivated by the music that is universal to us all. Concerts are supposed to be a safe place, so what happens when we can't even be safe in the places that feel like home? 

Just sitting back & watching these tragedies seems passive & unproductive, but how do we help? In this case, donating to this fundraiser started by the Manchester News is a good start. If you can't donate, spread the word. As of Tuesday night, there are still fifteen people missing. The power of social media is amazing & has already helped one missing girl be found. 

Keep loving, keep being a light. Don't let the world put out your fire just yet.
