Reflecting on the Tragedy in Uvalde

As someone who has spent my adult life being in service, it is easy to feel stressed and overwhelmed by the circumstances. I know that many of you are feeling the same way. In these times it is easy to isolate and bury ourselves in our emotions. There is a certain solace to knowing that you can retreat to an inner sanctum and tune out the noise of the world. Indeed, it is a path that I often take.

However, this moment feels different. I still feel unfathomable pain, but I no longer think that nesting with my emotions is productive. So... I turned to my mother and we shared our deepest thoughts about this time in the human condition.
