Kollwitz expands the horizon of our own struggles to include the suffering of the whole world. She gives grief a social dimension. This in itself has healing power, taking us from mere preoccupation with ourselves to a more inclusive concern for the sufferings of others. In helping them to heal, we ourselves find healing. You may find in your neighborhood someone who needs a listening ear or helping hand. People further away – victims of natural catastrophes, injustice, and violence – may seem harder to help, but keep in mind the many organizations like Habitat for Humanity and Amnesty International that give you avenues for reaching out. You can express your willingness to help by thoughtfully Lighting a Candle.
