You cannot know a person intimately until you know and share in their suffering
i posted this quote yesterday not knowing what will happen today in London. my heart goes out to all the people who are in the middle of this heartbreak tragedy. they say that god allows sometimes for things to happen in our lives to learn empathy and to later on be able to help someone in similar shoes. i think america is in those shoes right now and i hope we, from here, are able to send our hearts to those who are in the middle of it all right now.
the mayor of London, ken livingstone, gave one of the most heart-felt, sincere speeches i have ever heard an official give. if you get an opportunity, listen to it.
