When the world is upside down and tragedy is the word of the day, pull in closer to those you love.
When the world has gone mad and you don’t know who to trust, pull in closer to those you care about.
Go outside and sit down on the grass and feel the earth beneath you. Dig your fingernails deep into the dirt to know that yes, earth is still here and so are you.
Close your eyes, feel the warmth of the sun, and know that yes, the cold of the tragedy will soon be gone.
Hear the birds chatter away and know that there is still life on this planet, and tomorrow will be a better day.
But until then… hold your children closer tonight and smother them with hugs and kisses. Protect them while you can from the craziness of the world they live in.
let us all draw in a little bit closer, and care more for each other because we’re all we’ve got when the world goes mad, and aren’t we all just one?
