In Memory of Robin Williams

Robin Williams

I posted this prayer which I wrote yesterday while thinking about the impact Robin Williams on the Light For The Journey Facebook page. Its popularity made me think some of you would like to read it too. I know that his death has been devastating for many of us.

God we know the wounds our world can inflict,
And have felt the heartache of its brokenness.
Let us have eyes to see and ears to hear,
That pain can give birth to laughter,
That humour often hides our fears.
Let us look at sorrow and anguish and not blink.
Accepting responsibility let us become pilgrims in the ruins,
Choosing to respond with love and compassion,
To all who are hurting and in pain.

Robin, through his painful psyche, touched so many fellow sufferers, may he now be free of his own suffering. Michelle
