Yesterday I woke up to the news that Cory Monteith, one of the stars of the hit TV series Glee, was found dead in his hotel room. My family and I are huge fans of Glee and have so appreciated all the messages this transformative show has created for our world. I am simply in shock that something like this happens to such a talented soul. My heart is heavy with this news.
Meanwhile, this is in such contrast to the news generated by Steve Grand’s new country music video that went viral on July 4 and has now been viewed over 1.3 million times. The courage of this guy to create his music video after being shamed and simply told to go away is deeply inspiring.
And then the Trayvon Martin verdict certainly activates many emotions.
I am in that place where I feel deeply today the fragility of the human condition -the pain and sadness of our dark side and the thrill and inspiration of our light side.
From all of these events, I just feel today how much we need each other and how much we must reach out and ask for help. We must know that we are not alone in any of this – this thing called life.
What help do you need to reach out and ask for today?
