Bearing Witness

What we need is simply this in our moments of pain.

Don't Lose Hope

“There is in life a suffering so unspeakable, a vulnerability so extreme, that it goes far beyond words. In the face of suffering all we can do is bear witness so no one needs to suffer alone.” –  Rachel Remen

Sometimes it’s impossible to put into words what we have experienced. What we have gone through. Words can’t capture it. They seem inadequate.

And yet there is this pressure to articulate, to share – what can’t be said or spoken.

The impact’s too profound.

We’re spaced out. And we reeling. We’ve lost all contact with time.

But what we need is human contact. Someone there, to be with us. To sit with us in silence. To witness all that pain.

We don’t need words, and answers. We don’t need trite advice.

We need the gift of presence.

And that will be enough.
