While nestled in my child/grandchild/husband/extended family safe place of love and sweet joy this past week and a half, it seems as though the world completely lost it.
As in, whaaaat????
We have reached new lows in violence and hatred.
So much has been written and spoken and cried and sung already, I do not have much to add.
Except, perhaps, this little piece of wisdom from early grade school days;
We were graded on how well we worked and played together.
Yes—working and playing together. It begs the question, why can’t we all just get along?
Didn’t John Lennon ask this same question: “All I am saying, is give peace a chance…”
Put away the damn guns. Stop hating each other. Try, please, just try to see one other person today as a human being.
Really, all I’m sayin….
