a newly discovered gem.

I came across this poem earlier this week, fell in love and had to share. I'd seen bits of it swirling around the interwebs after the Boston attack and finally found it in its entirety.  While it is specifically about tragedy and survival the idea that our lives can change in an instant (for the good as well as the not-so-good) is a powerful one and leads me to believe in all the possibilities of the future.

There is the hope that something difficult can be overcome and the reminder that good things rarely last forever and that the pendulum can swing from one apex to the other in just the blink of an eye. Appreciate what you have, don't give up just yet, and don't be afraid to marvel at the miracles of the millions of interactions and near misses that make up our amazingly wonderful lives.
