I have been so horrified by the events of the world recently, and really not so recently as well, but lately it has all been brought to the front of my thoughts. I don't know what to do or how to fix it. I write letters and donate what I can and make phone calls and sign petitions. It is not enough, but it is what I can do. I will also teach my daughter that the world can be different than it is. That we have the power to make it different. I do truly believe this, however impossible it may seem at the moment.
We are all hurting, and what we are doing now is causing so much hurt. Hurt that will not disappear for lifetimes. We are all breaking open.
I hope that we can use this hurt and brokenness to learn, to do our best to repair what has been done, and to vow to do better next time.
