To chose to live is an act of courage--an act we honor. To kill innocents is no act of martyrdom--it is nothing more than the act of a coward.
According to The Guardian, "The Brussels government has invited the Belgian population to observe a minute of silence, tomorrow (Wednesday) at 12pm." For those of us living here on the East Coast of the United States that would be 7:00 a.m. EST tomorrow.
The last gift Rob gave me were some essential oils and a diffuser. He completely surprised me by having them shipped to our home for Valentine's day. They arrived here about the same time Rob came home for hospice care--came home knowing he would die.
Tomorrow morning a little before 7, I plan to pour some oil into the diffuser, light the tea candle, and sit quietly gathering the silence close and pray for peace and kindness to comfort those whose loved ones were murdered or injured in Brussels.
