Breakneck Pace

   As the media emphasis shifts at breakneck speed to the Colorado fires or the latest calamities I can’t help but marvel at how quickly the Boston Marathon victims’ families and limbless survivors are forgotten, as well as the Oklahoma victims’ families and the now homeless in that area. You can be sure they will never forget what has happened because their lives have been permanently altered and impacted. It is so easy to be overwhelmed by the multiplying disasters and to give in to the experience of what has been described as “compassion fatigue.” That’s where churches or fellowship groups and concerned communities and families could be a remedy and distribute and re-distribute the load among themselves so that the prayer support is not forgotten and the awareness of the need in those areas continues. That way we are less likely to forget that we are part of one people or one body and are called to hurt with those who hurt, mourn with those who mourn, and weep with those who weep. We assume (and assumption has been called the "lowest form of intelligence") so much of the time that it can’t happen here or now to us or to ours, but that thinking is skating on awfully thin ice to say the least.. For those of us who may be next in line for unwanted trouble, we will be far better prepared for having shared a little of our neighbors’ grief and trouble with them.
