8. A Broken Heart

He carried a heart that was about to be broken.

That was how he eventually died. He carried his heart, open and vulnerable, from Jordan to Jerusalem, from Gethsemane to Golgotha. And then it was broken: broken by the savagery of the death he was about to face; broken by the sheer, uncompromising weight of all the other
things he carried; but most of all, broken by the love that brought him to this moment of self-surrender. Things slot into place. The halves of the cross are put together. Nailed...

 Taken from The Things He Carried by Stephen Cottrell.
