We are horrified by something tragic like the attacks in Paris. How can we not be? Seeing those who would slaughter innocents is beyond our comprehension. Trying to make rational sense of it, trying to understand the cause, may be an exercise in frustration.
Whatever happens next, give yourself a break from the news. Get up and take a walk in nature. Make plans to spend time with those you love. Look around at your life and feel grateful for all the small things, a warm shower, that cup of coffee, a shared laugh, a sweet song. Fill yourself up with love. Love is more powerful that hate.
