Today, as so often, I am
rejoicing with those who rejoice and mourning with those who mourn. We
experience love and breath-taking joy because the universe is not meaningless.
We experience loss and breath-taking sorrow because the universe is not meaningless.
If the universe was truly indifferent, we would be truly indifferent too. But
we are not, and so there is hope, in the face of unimaginable gift and of
unimaginable tragedy, beyond our understanding.
