I've been asked to blog about the plane crashes recently – especially the Malaysian flight shot down over Ukraine. I wish I had words of wisdom or brilliant phrases of comfort. But I have none of this. I have only the grief in my own heart. Grief knocks me to the ground where I can feel real again. Pain and grief can do that. They open our hearts to feelings, opening doors we would rather keep bolted shut.
Such events beg us to ask the existential question "Why?" and "Why those people?” The answer isn’t: “ The Russians thought it was a military plane." The question goes deeper. "Why war?” For that question I REALLY don't have an answer… except maybe to look within and see where I hold grudges, anger, resentment, and fear. I can use outside events as a pointer to where I need to heal my own emotions.
Perhaps the question isn't "Why did they die?" Perhaps the better question is "What are each of us going to do with it?” Are we going to hate? Feel hopeless and ring our hands? Or are we going to love even harder? Everyone. Every minute.
When we choose to love harder, the human angels who died in those crashes give us a high-five. Their torch has been passed.
