because the sun continues to rise

and the sun continues to set

and the moon rises to grace our presence with rare luminance

and the tides continue to oscillate

and the waves continue to crash

and the clouds continue to move

and love continues to ignite

so in the end,

while there’s no way to entirely

prevent this

the sun, the moon, the tides, the waves, the clouds,

and love

prevail.

p.s. I watched Patriots Day with my brother, sister, and fiancé yesterday. It was based on the Boston Marathon bombing and its aftermath. We were totally invested in the movie’s action and most importantly, its message. And even though there’s no way to completely prevent terrorism, love always prevail. Love trumps hate. Love heals. Here’s to prevailing–even when preventing isn’t an option!
