Today I was doing laundry. I was oblivious, as usual. Living life. Doing the every day. And then, blam. News. News, no one ever wants to hear. News that cannot be talked about or ever really understood. Shock. Sadness. Tears. And this empty feeling of utter human impotence. I, who always have words, have none. Words are not good enough, but maybe my prayers are worth something. I hurt so deeply for my friends who have lost the unspeakable. And I so wish I could do something to help.
