It hurts, loving Him when terrible things happen in the world. Yes, He is a god of the dead but He is so in love with life that, when things like this happen, even that portion of His grief that He allows me to share feels like drowning.
For everyone killed in Manchester last night, may a psychopomp guide them gently to the Otherworld.
For everyone desperate for news of their loved ones, may they hear soon and may the news be good.
For everyone injured in the explosion, may gods of healing be near them.
For all of the doctors and nurses treating the injured, may the gods work with them and in them and through them.
May those responsible for this horror be cursed, may their ancestors turn away from them, may they find no peace in this world or any other.
