Aloha 'Oe

Earlier tonight one of my best friends and I received a bit of news that, at the risk of diving into maudlin territory, made us feel like the world spun off its axis. It feels like a divorce and a death; a new chapter which we have no idea how to begin. All we were given was a simple plot, and now it's up to us to fill in the little bits and pieces with a dialogue we never wanted to engage in.

No comments:

We must never permit the voice of humanity
within us to be silenced. It is Man's sympathy with all creatures that first makes him a Man.

--Albert Schweitzer

Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.

--Viktor E. Frankl
