With due apologies if I have interrupted your grief!

I cry in our sadness
In the loss
of a little child
in the hills and plains of
Pakistan, US, Somalia, Afghanistan.
I weep in pain
in the suffering
in our suffering.




My grief
like yours
hurts.
My loss
like yours
is loss.
Our grief, here and there
is grief.
My body
like yours hurts.




But it is I
who has to do the explaining
It is I
who has to be interrogated
It is I
whose motives have to be questioned
It is I
who will be accused of interrupting
your grief
It is I
who will be lectured
on civility
the appropriateness of time, place, context.





And I must go on
Because
grief must be interrupted.
Lest it be used
for more violence.
I must go on
Because
Grief must be interrupted.
Mine, yours, ours.
Stories must be told,
Imaginations must be engaged,
questions must be raised,
here, now, there
Everywhere.

I drop a comment whenever I like a article on a website or if I have something
to add to the discussion. Usually it is a result of the passion communicated in
the article I looked at. And after this article "With due apologies if I have interrupted your grief!".
I was moved enough to drop a thought :) I actually do have a few questions
for you if it's allright. Is it simply me or does it look like a few of the remarks appear like coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at additional social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
Would you make a list every one of your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or
linkedin profile?
