The landscape before me is tantalizing. The snow that has fallen all around, emanating a splendor to behold. The glistening snow is like scattered diamond clusters sprinkled indiscriminately upon a satin cloth. The sun is revealing a panorama of the snowcapped Adirondaks a sight to behold. The glistening powder softens the reality of the agony within.
My mind eludes to a time when I gazed upon the tiny threads a forced position on the floor. Adrenaline rush to my head. Oh! Gosh! Was I really dead? A day when I said my good-byes to all those whom I have loved . Sorrowful omissions scattered through my mind as I waited for the impending slaying of those around me. A snapshot in time when my world was shattered, scattered and abused. To grieve was to be human, to feel, unacceptable.
Looking back at this incident and all of the ensuing obstacles and traumas and smirk to myself. I am searching for the appropriate assumption or answer. What was the most invasive? Was it the horrific invasion or taunting of our souls? Or, was it the mistreatment or judgment of our emotions that made us feel that we had been raped or purged by the Company? Pondering this for too long is not healthy, they say. But, we all know deep within that we will never feel safe at our workplace again.
The diamonds are sparkling back at me right now. The Omega Center a healing vessel. Today is a reminder, a confirmation that we have the right to shine as brightly; and as dazzling diamonds bathed in the warm and healing sunlight, today and always – you know?
