Can You Learn Anything From the Tragedy in Orlando? Yes, the Answer Comes From Within

How do you come to terms with senseless violence? How do you integrate what happened in Orlando, and other tragedies around our country and world, into your heart and mind, so that you can explain it to your child? There’s no explanation, other than the fact that killers and haters have forgotten that we are all connected.

There is no separation. We are One.

You know this even if you were taught differently. We all do. It’s a universal truth and the greatest gift you can give your child. So find that place inside yourself that knows the truth. Here’s how: Say to yourself, “My heart knows …” Your answer will be your deepest truth.

This very act is loving your child.
