I haven't been able to truly translate what the events of this past week in France have meant to me -- and I know I would inevitably end up with something tacky or redundant. It's hard.

I know how you feel. Just say it like you feel it. There's nothing new under the sun but saying nothing is a moment to speak that comes and passes, and leaves a bitter taste of regret on the tongue.

I believed that saying "I am sorry for your loss" was one of the most trite, empty, meaningless expressions humans have overused. All that changed one night when I heard an actor say them. I guess it was the moment for me to learn another lesson about the power of simplicity offered with heart-felt sincerity. Then again, sometimes the easiest words are the simplest.

It doesn't hurt to think such feelings either. Now. Re-read what you wrote. It is enough. :) I believe you have a good heart.

Be well.
