Fleeing-for-Our-Lives Lesson

So many people woke up this morning not knowing if they would ever be safe, without an advocate, without clean water, food, or shelter, or without money or means to change any of those things. Who do I think I am waking up with all these things and still being unhappy? What kind of spoiled child have I become, that I can whine or fret about tiny things and ignore the big magic around me?

The time has come

to woman-up

before life slaps my little face with reality

before I am forced to flee for my life

or face the hell of exploding bombs

or dying children

Look it in the face

See the news

Read a book

Flee self-absorption

long enough to see

what I have
