unexpected blessings

I am, We are…

I am a runner.

But I won’t stop running races because of the events on April 15, 2013.

I am a volunteer. We have all volunteered.

And I am thankful for the volunteers who ran towards the attack to help those in need in the middle of a chaos and fear.

I am a learner. We are all learners.

And, none of us have stopped going to school (elementary, high school or college) after attacks on the innocent.

I am a shopper among many more.

And we still crowd the malls and enjoy this past time.

I am a worker among millions who go to a job every day.

And we all still wake up, thankful to be alive, thankful to be working and we go.

I am a person. We are people.

We are sad and angry and broken. But we are strong and resilient.
