I’ve been feeling down about discovering, recently, in a very harsh way, that another friend has dissolved our friendship without warning or explanation. But it suddenly seems very unimportant to me.
A friend has lost his father. People have lost their homes in raging fires. A child had been arrested for bringing a clock he built to school. People who want to lead our country are trading barbs instead of economic plans. Another shooting has been reported in the neighborhood I live near and travel through almost every day.
My heart is heavy today with worry and remorse for those suffering from loss, concern for the wellbeing of our neighbors and ourselves, and fear of what these Commander-In-Chief wannabes will do if they get their hands on the Oval Office.
I am in desperate need of a silver lining but, this morning, all I can see are dark, stormy clouds.
