“When was the last time you cried”?To begin with, I think it’s a brilliant question. What better way to show the humanity of people that many Americans quickly deem as terrorists without further thought. Second, the answers they got to this question have stuck with me. Namely, that most of the people had a specific answer to this question and it was usually something within the last week. Now I realize that there are plenty of cultural differences but this startled me. It startled me because I am a self professed non-crier. The last time I cried was when my daughter was born a few months ago and all sorts of visions raced through my mind. One of the bigger reasons is that I live a pretty cushy life. There aren’t many things that happen to me on a regular basis (as in weekly) that push me to tears. I’m not sure what conclusion I should draw from these thoughts. Two of them stand out to me: 1) I need to cry more; or 2) I need to continually realize how blessed I am. I don’t really know how to just make the first one happen, and I’m confident the second one should be included. When’s the last time you cried? FYI… our Easter services at Central this weekend might help us all out in this area. 😉
