I was working on my latest post when the tragic news of what happened in Peshawar came through.
The post was about conceptual gardens based on mortal sins
and I had been mulling over these sins
to figure out my feelings
when Peshawar happened.
Everything I was working on seemed futile
because Peshawar happened.
That was a Sin
A sin so sinful
I can't comprehend it.
HOW can humanity become so vile?
WHAT can we do so that this never happens again?
I know I will go back to my garden
to my posts about my travels
and photos of pretty flowers
will once again
occupy my camera's lens and
Until the next
then I will
feel raw again.
But can we break this cycle?
Can we stop committing such sins?
How can murdering innocent children
I can't work on the post at the moment.
I will go back to it when I feel less raw.
For now though
a prayer is in my heart for
the ones who died
and for the ones who live on
wishing this had never happened.
