I'm not sure what the right response is in these times. I *think* it might be a call to not whine as much and to help take care of those who are hurting. And to listen to music that keeps my head straight.
Bruce Cockburn's "Fascist Architecture" is a song I thought of today:
Bloody nose and burning eyes
Raised in laughter to the skies
I've been in trouble but I'm ok
Been through the wringer but I'm ok
Walls are falling and I'm ok
Under the mercy and I'm ok
Let's be merciful to each other.
