our silent complicity…

I read the tragic story of Tyler Clementi yesterday and was absolutely heartbroken.

It started with a Twitter message on Sept. 19: “Roommate asked for the room till midnight. I went into molly’s room and turned on my webcam. I saw him making out with a dude. Yay.”

And three days later, the roommate who had been surreptitiously broadcast — Tyler Clementi, an 18-year-old freshman and an accomplished violinist — jumped from the George Washington Bridge into the Hudson River in an apparent suicide. [via NY Times]

It’s an absolutely gut wrenching story. How could these two other students do something so mean-spirited and heinous…?

pc: @trintaay Worked my final shift at @qcafe today. Thank you, neighbors, patrons, artists, musicians, students, and Questers. An amazing 13 years...with lots of challenges in between but now, the church is on the move.  Worked the espresso bar today for one last time for the Q with dear friends, JKO and Randor. Loved looking through all the live music show posters. We hosted some incredible shows including Ingrid Michaelson, Allen Stone, Macklemore before he became Macklemore, Josh Garrels, Chris Tomlin, Head and the Heart, Nicklecreek, Joy Williams,  Propaganda, and so many more. End of an era. #qcafe

pc: @trintaay This morning. Enjoying some calm before the storm. Also landed Moby Dick. My smile says it all. #CaptainChohab #cascadescamp  #매운탕 #monsterbass #fishon Breathe. Show yourself some grace. We can't do everything for everyone in every situation. Do what you can and do it with a cheerful heart. Remember, there's nothing selfish about rest and self-care. We can't give what we don't have.
