While hate isn't new, neither is Love.
A shadow merely covers whatever may lurk within it. We shouldn't be surprised when the light shines and we uncover something we don't like. At the same time we shouldn't forget that it was light itself that allowed us to see. We shouldn't be surprised and maybe we're not. Maybe we're just scared by the view before us; the landscape now lit up for all to see. Still, we can't forget.... it was light itself that allowed us to see.
Words aren't really enough to articulate what we see and how it's made us feel, but perhaps we can start to understand, to a greater extent, what others already saw. We shouldn't let our eyes be focused on that which disheartens us... we should equally see that we are not alone. While the landscape is filled with suddenly vocal and confident obstacles, lets not ignore the wonders that still abound.
The light has always been there, trying to teach. It rises and falls on us all. There are no boundaries that can contain or restrict it. Boundaries are an invention of man-kind and we should not allow ourselves to believe, neither literally or metaphorically, in their credibility.
The light shines more as we evolve and unite closer together. While the light has uncovered a challenge that has made us doubt and mourn.... we must not forget, it was the light that allowed us to see.
Now we can see, we shouldn't be despondent. We shouldn't feel alone or hopeless. We should continue onward and upwards. Progress is the result of strength and unity. While it may be slowed by a challenger, it cannot be stopped. Experience makes us stronger, wiser and even more united.
We must never forget that Time stops for no one. Time has no Master or agenda. Time bows to no single voice. Time powers forward regardless of the events it oversees. Whatever pain and hurt we feel in this moment, the next will surely follow. Time will not stop for us to embrace the peculiar comfort of our wounds. Instead this notion itself should comfort us. For time will also not befriend those who may seek to halt it.
The landscape hasn't changed... rather, ironically, The Sun has just come out. What before was a mystery now holds no secrets. We've seen what's before us and will be all the stronger for it.
