Friends

Friendship

Some things that happen are just too sad.

I feel angry and protective and sad and angry all over again.

Don’t ever let anyone tell you that the connections we form over the internet aren’t real. Prayers of lament have gone up from one coast to the other today, I know, and across the ocean, too. It’s my prayer tonight that the dear friend who is hurting will feel the love flowing to her from all directions, from friends who know her face and want to hear her distinctive laugh again, and from those who can only imagine her but love her nonetheless.

  1. Thank you for alerting me sweetie…it’s all quite mad here as FabVicar is away, and I’m hardly reading my feeds at all…so wouldn’t have known for days. It’s so wretched…I feel far away and useless – but absolutely no question that it’s a real friend in pain.

  2. It’s hard to believe that I am hurting so for a woman and a boy whom I’ve never met. Yes, this is real community, where when one of us is in sorrow we are all in sorrow.
