This wonderful, terrible world

I hope whatever senses remain in the years I have left are always attuned to both the gifts and the sufferings of this wonderful, terrible world. And when my capacities fail, may there always be someone who can take my hand and lead me back not just to my own sense of home, but to a more expansive desire that all creatures may know a place to belong in community, coupled with the will to help make it so.
