May it be a peaceful one for us all, after all.
I know what it is like to lose someone unexpectedly, life stops and you wonder why not the whole world stops with you in that whirlwind of emotions. It can take months, years before you understand how anyone can rejoice and laugh. But when you do. When you one day laugh without a bad conscience for doing so, you will appreciate that the world did not stop, that there is a world to return to that also contains goodness, love, peace and laughter.
For those of you in pain right now, my thoughts are with you.
For those of you in peace right now, stop for a moment and cherish it.
