The Lantern


It is not helpful to lament with someone and wrestle in their pain, in their sorrow.

It is helpful to recall their light, their resources, their Spirit:

So that they can choose to believe more fully in and of themselves.

We cannot be on someone’s path with them


We can surely hold the lantern as they move through the darkness.
