     I can understand, accept and move on when my own life happens. But I have difficulty with this when I see and hear about injustices that exist in the world still today. Watching the lives of other people happen, watching them suffer...that is quite the challenge. I can work on myself to understand their lives, but do I then accept it and move on? What good comes of that? There must be more than just accepting it. My adaptation of the Serenity Prayer:

    Life, grant me the mindfulness to understand and accept the things that are to be;
    the courage to affect and help heal those that are unnatural;
    and the wisdom to know the difference.
