It's Raining

It’s raining here today and I’m quite content about it. It’s not just that we need the rain — we do — but it’s also made for a somber, quiet mood which is just what today calls for. It wasn’t raining that morning six years ago, I remember it was bright. I walked out of my office in the mid-day sun and thought about the contrast of that brightness with the overwhelming sorrow that was swirling around us.

Isn’t it interesting how a certain moment can be etched in so many minds. Questions of Where were you when you heard? But today, just rain. And I’m reminded how all those tears, all that rain, can nourish us, make us stronger, even give us hope.
