Breathe for those who can longer take in the breath of life.
Breathe for those who have been stripped of their precious lives, forgotten, their photos shared with a hashtag, as some pray, some take action, some pause to catch themselves…
Breathe for those discarded, abused, profiled, and treated less than human.
Take every opportunity given to breathe and notice the world around you, as you choose to consider others, seeing flesh as flesh, items as weighted stuff and soil as we return to earth.
While I’m here, I’ll pause – breathe – and move like I’m free.
