In the midst of plane crashes and conspiracy theories,
a thought (that had dawned on me for a while now) finally settled.
A prayer is a prayer,
whether it is vocalized or not.
Feeling for one or caring for them
is not indicated by your verbalization of the feeling or the care.
If it's there, it's there.
Making it public does not make it more significant,
just as Silence does not make it any less noteworthy.
They did say that at the end of the day, your view on the world is a mere reflection of yourself.
If compassion is what you give, compassion is what you receive.
(There I go again, stating the obvious!)
But when it comes to these things, that's what everything is - obvious - is it not?
