When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways - either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength. Thanks to the teachings of Buddha, I have been able to take this second way.
– Dalai Lama
A week ago, news rang of the heart-wrenching attack in Brussels. And over the weekend, we heard of the tragic suicide bombing in Lahore, Pakistan... Unfortunately, these sorts of horrific stories are not folklore from an historic age – they’re happening all around the world.
As I sit and reflect on this reality, I’m broken for humankind.
