day 22

With that, Joseph hurried out, because he was overcome with affection for his brother, and he was about to weep.  So he went into a private room and wept there.  Genesis 43:30

noticing the scarfed
   teenager sitting alone
   on the bus;
listening to the
   immigrant child
   translating for his
           parents;
comforting those
   who find themselves
   outsiders looking in,
we meet our family,
      and weep
for our loss in
not knowing them
all our lives.
