The wise people of the world do not hold their stomachs in worry; they do not allow their thoughts to spiral out of control. The wise ones meet their challenges, decide what is theirs to control, and act with courage and compassion. Perhaps they show a bit of weakness now and again, but with all that has transpired this past day, who could be blamed? I, for one, am learning to lean on those whom I trust, and in them, place my faith that vulnerabilities shared will not diminish their estimation of me.
As I would embrace them in their entirety, so too, have I been embraced by these kind souls.
Today, Eastport will have their support. They will have their hope. And from it perhaps we can all gain back some solid footing.
