Yesterday I Cried

Yesterday I finally cried.  For several weeks I’ve been living with crying in the back bedroom waiting to catch up with me.  I usually know exactly what is causing any sadness in me, but not this time.  Today I know at least part of the reason.  I didn’t cry once in India.  Not when I saw mangled limbs of beggars, not when I stepped over a cluster of naked children asleep on the street, not when a young bride had to step over raw sewage on her way out of her wedding ceremony and not when I became increasingly aware that any efforts I was making were smaller than one drop in the ocean.  All of these and several hundred other images are worth some tears – so yesterday I cried.
