Fog of grief

Occasionally something rises as Excalibur that speaks directly to the heart.

Well, while gliding up Twitter feeds, a grieving Aunt was comforted by a compassionate soul with ‘So sorry. We thank him for his service to Our Country. Rest In Peace.’

It doesn’t matter if these two compassionate souls know one another. Acknowledgement of pain and its cause matters somehow to the process of accommodating it. Why?

Amid the pestilencial perfidy slithering itself around the Globe has been revealed an appetite for humanity to shine stronger. One aspect blazons strength of resistance to unseen attack. Another demonstrates the importance of softening the heart to others’ suffering. Not feeling so alone in grief is itself of comfort and support.

It helps knit together forever broken threads.
