Time to take a breath

Now is a time of deep relief,
        of grief for the brokenness of things—
        certainly, no time for gloating 
        nor for complacency. 

We have work to do, 
        each of us. 
        We must ask the question—
        always, ask the question—
        "What is mine to do?" 

And the answer, surely,
        is to reach out,
        beyond our comfort zone, 
        to find some way, 
        however small or insignificant seeming, 
        to connect with someone who seems, 
        on the face of things, 
        to be different from ourselves 
        and to learn, then, 
        how we are the same. 

And that involves listening to their story.
        This is nothing new.
        We always have
        this job to do.
