Disaster. Tragedy. War.
By Amy Lam
Both personal and collective. This year we have seen suffering and injustice interrupt the lives of many across the world.
Mothers cried for their daughters lost never returned home from school. Sisters on the other side of the moon wept for brothers vanished on the seas. And fathers feared for the lives of their sons who are presumed guilty for the color of their skin.
What can we possibly say about justice, fairness, and our fate? What are the words of comfort we can offer to each other?
Apology Unaccepted is a poem that gives voice to the human struggle with loss. May we find space to grieve and comfort in our loss.
