Lift the Burden from Your Heart

leave a comment »

We cannot carry the burdens of the world on our own shoulders. It is not for any one person to endure or for any one person to fix. We are an accumulation of our past, an accumulation of our ancestors’ choices and of the choices we ourselves have made. And though we may not have been directly responsible for some of the outcomes of choices long made in the past, we are here. We are here today, and must share not only in the despair, but also in the muck that has been dredged up. Only together can we begin to undue sins of the past. Only together can we begin to heal our wounds. Only together can we begin to see who we are. Share your burden with me. Share your path with me. Share with all those who would dare to listen, but let their choice be their choice.
