Why "Together We Thrive?" How about "Together We Mourn?"
What is so wrong with grieving? What is wrong with being angry, searching for meaning? Why do we have to go right to a place of strength, jump to a place of "hope?"
Why do there have to be t-shirts?
I'm not trying to be snide, picky, or mean. Really, I'm not. This just doesn't seem right. Tragedy shouldn't have an upbeat slogan. People who are grieving shouldn't feel compelled to cheer up. The message of hope in the eulogy shouldn't be about how strong WE are, when we've just been shown how truly weak we are.
I don't know...this just seems really...I don't know. The only words that come to mind are askew and incongruent. Hardly words that fit, either.
