On the Passing of Elie Wiesel

image

having come out of the night may I not simply seek the light but be part of the fire

having groaned in despair may I not simply seek hope but laugh out loud in joy

having faced the horrors of death may I not simply survive but choose to live each day to the fullest

having suffered in silence may I not only choose to face the fear but become a refuge for anyone seeking solace and safety

may I always remember the pain but not let it make me numb to the pain of others

may I never forget my suffering but embrace the suffering of others

may I never forget my tears but be forever baptized in the weeping of the world
