Occupying the same space as another, holding their pain and pausing to just be with them means we have to resist the urgent demands of time. Loving someone means we do less. If we want to settle in with those who are weeping, we’ll need to plant roots, silence the noise and leave the clock at home. And instead of ticking hands, we’ll hear beating hearts. Theirs – and ours. With each beat we hear our collective humanity.
