Every Wednesday

Every Wednesday I will post something about grief. Sometimes it will be a reflection on an aspect of grief’s landscape. Now and then I will share from my own journey of grief, because in the sharing of our stories we find strength and build a community of people that support one another.

The One Percent


May 26

A recent science report said there is a one percent difference between the amount of matter in the universe than of antimatter. This is the only reason why we have ice cream and sunsets, and why our universe is still here. You see, when matter touches antimatter, they explode rather violently, like a match to gasoline.

When we see people showing compassion to others who are suffering, we are more likely to do something similar down the road.

This is the one percent that keeps the human race from giving up and eating each other because of all the sorrow, anger, despair, and endless wars.
