Gerald put his hand out to touch his wife's arm. She responded by placing her head on his chest.
"It's just so awful."
"The world. The news is just so bad. It hurts knowing that people are suffering everywhere. I feel helpless."
Gerald put his arms around his wife and held her. He knew there were times to solve problems and times to just be there. He felt Claudia's breathing begin to slow as he continued to hold her close.
"I'm sorry you had to experience that, Claudia. There is some real bad stuff out there."
"Sometimes I just want to hide away and never go out."
Claudia moved out of his grasp. There was something in her eyes that showed a steely resolve.
"But we can't do that can we?"
"We are God's light in the dark."
"We are. Honestly I don't always feel that way. I feel like you do a lot. I don't like the news. It can make me feel so hopeless. It's easier just to tune it out."
"We make quite a pair don't we?"
"We both care and that comes with a cost."
"Is it worth it?"
"Mostly it is, yes. Mostly it is."
Gerald brought Claudia close and they held each other tight. It was a break that they both needed very badly.
