As we are laid to rest: an ode to Robin Williams, Michael Brown, Kevin Ward, Jr. and too many others

As we are laid to rest: an ode to Robin Williams, Michael Brown, Kevin Ward, Jr. and too many others

As we are laid to rest, soothing eulogies wash over us.

No more harm or horror can reach us.

We are in a peaceful place, away from the terrors and tragedies of this turbulent world.

Our hearts are filled with God's love--we no longer need affirmation, liberation or have obligations.

We are free.

There are not 72 virgins here so don't yearn for death.  Make positive changes in life, that is reward enough.

Be good to each other and understand everyone's journey is different, but this fate will befall us all.

Rest in peace.
