Have you ever played the superpower game? You know, the one where you select a superpower.
If I could have a superpower, it would be the power to mend. When I say mend, I mean I’d want to be able to fix broken things, sew on patches to life’s tears, make things right.
But in playing the superpower game, it’s always best to consider consequences. With my power, how would I decide what needs mending? How would I decide which broken things should remain broken? How would I manage the needs of so many and so much – the desperate pleadings of people who hope beyond hope for repair of some kind? How would I handle the disappointment of those whose requests for mending butted up against my own judgment that some things should stay torn?
