So many of us have been impacted directly and indirectly by so many tragedies. What do we do when tragedy hits us? How do we pick up the pieces? It is always important to circle the wagons with friends, family, community; but, what if you are a person without those resources? For me, I always think about music, creative art or animals, even when I do not have immediate access to them. Our mindset or state of perseverance to move beyond the immediate crisis is something that a tragedy might dampen, but never takes away.
