A Universal Experience

Coming together or falling apart?

“I hurt!” cried the woman who had been raped.

“I hurt!” cried the mourning mother.

“I hurt!” cried the fatherless child.

“I hurt!” cried the beaten and abused.

“I hurt!” cried the oppressed and imprisoned.

“I hurt!” cried the sick and dying.

“I hurt!” cried the homeless and starving.

“I hurt!” cried the hidden and the hunted.

“I hurt!” cried the righteous and the sinners.

“I hurt!” cried the rapists, the murders, and the abusers.

“I hurt!” cried those in power who hide their fear with reigns of terror.

And so it was. The pain endemic to Humanity should unite them — not divide them. For each Human carried inside of them the seed of their pain.

All Humans bore pain.

To recognize that your pain was his pain was her pain was their pain would be the day Humans could finally begin to heal All. The. Pain.

Perhaps today will be that day.

May all beings be safe.

May all beings be healthy.

May all beings be free.

May all beings be at peace.
