Different but not worse
by Tracey Metzger
No one else would be able to tell, but I can see the difference.
When I look at pictures of her before, I see someone oblivious to deep pain. There had been sadness before, but not the kind of heartache that begs time to rewind itself.
When I look at pictures of her since, I see something that wasn’t there before.
Resolve to make sure that the pain was not in vain. I see someone who recognizes pain in others and offers hope.
They thank her but she should thank them.
Giving hope, births even more hope inside of her.
