In Memory of Robin Williams

Robin williams

A prayer posted by Christine Sine which she wrote while thinking about the impact Robin Williams (the actor in Good Will Hunting and many other films) whose death has been devastating for many following his suicide this week. Robin Williams took his own life in a battle with major depression. In Khulumani, we too know the terrible impact of brokenness and pain.

God we know the wounds our world can inflict,
And have felt the heartache of its brokenness.
Let us have eyes to see and ears to hear,
That pain can give birth to laughter,
That humour often hides our fears.
Let us look at sorrow and anguish and not blink.
Accepting responsibility let us become pilgrims in the ruins,
Choosing to respond with love and compassion,
To all who are hurting and in pain.
