COT/PRAYER and read excerpt from an article by Rachel Macy Stafford “Am I Invisible”:
“I said, “Remember this.” Remember this when you are in familiar territory and someone new walks up looking for guidance. Remember this when you see someone on the outskirts anxiously holding her own hand. Remember this when someone approaches you and asks a question – see the bravery behind the words. Remember this when you see someone stop trying – perhaps he’s been rejected one too many times. Remember this when you see someone being excluded or alienated – just one friendly person can relieve the painful sense of feeling invisible.
Remember the deepest desire of the human heart is to belong … to be welcomed … to know you are seen and worthy of kindness. One person can do that. One person can give someone hope. I know this, I absolutely know this, but how often I forget. Life gets busy. Things get familiar. I get caught up in my own problems, etc. etc.
I nearly forget what I have the power to do until one Tuesday afternoon when I take my daughter to an activity, and I am reminded. I approach two women hoping for kindness, but I am met with rudeness. And when it happens a second time, I start to feel bitter, so I ask myself how I can turn this into goodness, into love? And that’s when the words, “Remember this,” come out of my mouth.
It’s together for each other that we find strength to ask, learn, and never fold up and disappear. If that’s not life’s highest lesson, I don’t know what is. Let me remember it now, especially now, when the world’s collective pain is so deep, so wide, and so heavy. But there is hope …Because what we can do individually to heal the world’s collective pain is quite miraculous. We can half the pain by being one person’s person.”
