I cheated this week. I did not follow. I chose something else. Rise with me. Heal.
Here’s my contribution:
One terrible day a sorrowful boy committed the unspeakable. The heavens trembled with cries, for on that day this boy laid waste the defenseless around him. And then, something unexpected happened. From the broken bodies of children angels arose and, with tears in their cherub eyes, they came to the boy. Tiny hands reached out to him, rested upon him. Then they sang. Withstanding all the anger, all the pain and fury, and fear, these children, these angels, gifted him solace. They comforted him, they guided him home. And with the most selfless act of all, they loved him.
