I will heed the call of ages and stand with my shoulders tall.
I will refuse to be felled by an imaginary future. I will live this moment in gratitude. I will look at my life and see privilege.
I will go on moving in the middle of uncertainty. I will bolster my faith with a song.
I will look at evil and see good.
I will shoulder the terror that has crept into my heart with courage. I am not alone. This is not a first; clouds of witnesses surround me. They are angels, messengers of peace in the middle of the storm. I will look at devils and see God.
