“It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.”

I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”

One of the things that I love most about music is how it can transcend the barriers that silence us. Previously unspoken words are communicated, emotions are felt and expressed, and evocative melodies bring about understanding. 

This song and video speak loudly about the tragedy that happened at SPU a month ago. Bigger than that, it speaks to the ups and downs that accompany unexpected changes in life and the ways in which we deal with those changes. This video features Natalie, a girl that I met a few years ago while I was visiting one of my most cherished friends, Barrett, at SPU. She is the beautiful, free-spirited, passionate girl with blue hair. 

I hope that after watching this, you read the article that follows this video. I am so grateful for this - for the people that agreed to be filmed during such honest, vulnerable, difficult moments. Their individual experiences are powerfully expressed and projected onto those who are seeing them - something that I think offers a connection between them and us. I wholeheartedly believe that our losses are collective and our human experiences are connected.

I give these girls 2 thumbs up for doing their own makeup and then stopping their getting ready process to let me take their picture. #soglam #sochic #sosparkly

e.e. cummings, “let it go - the”

invisibleforeigner:

let it go – the

smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise – let it go it
was sworn to
go

let them go – the
truthful liars and
the false fair friends
and the boths and
neithers – you must let them go they
were born
to go

let all go – the
big small middling
tall bigger really
the biggest and all
things – let all go
dear

so comes love
