Our bishop, who has only been with us for a little more than five years, is turning out to be quite the "stand-up guy" through it all. His communications director, with whom I worked when her 20-something children were newborns and toddlers, is also contributing mightily to the admirable statements and transparent honesty that are marking their compassionate responses.
A difficult, very difficult side of humanity.
But as the poet would say, "And yet the flowers, the flowers continue to bloom and share their beauty without cost or question."
