Shocked and saddened by 8 HK tourists losing their lives, and 1 is critically injured, now still in the ICU. So close to us HKers, as many of us travel occasionally and the Philippines is among our popular destinations. www.uuhk.org has changed its look, and a thread is added to the forum, for mourning. May the dead rest in peace. May the injured recover soon. May the families be comforted and supported.
Let us reserve a minute of silence to remember the dead, the injured, and their families! We are star dust, yet so precious and valuable. Let us reflect seriously on our short and fragile being. Let us treasure our only life and feel deeply with our only body. Let us live life to the full, to actualize ourselves. Give thanks to Nature for our existence, and use our life wisely to love and help our fellow Humans.
Share with you a UU way to mourn.
Listen to Spirit of Life here
Spirit of Life, come unto me
Sing in my heart all the stirrings of compassion
Blow in the wind, rise in the sea,
Move in the hand, giving life the shape of justice.
Roots hold me close,
Wings set me free,
Spirit of Life, come to me, come to me.
