- Scrolling social media sites and reading political rants.
- High-fiving and endorsing those with which you align.
- Trying to convince the other "side." It's futile. It's divisive.
- Focusing on what is wrong. Discover what YOU can do that is right.
- Thinking you can't make a difference. Peace does begin with you and me.

Vortex of confusion and disillusion
Do you ever feel as though you're caught up in a whirlwind storm, a funnel cloud of negativity? Does it seem like the world and many of the people you know are spiraling out of your orbit? Are you reaching for something that is not there? Trying to get a grasp? Feel as if everything is fleeting, changing, or slipping away?
Liam and I were at the Science Center.
When overwhelmed and confused by so many images, it feels as though we're meeting ourselves coming and going. We feel cornered, a sense of helplessness, and don't know which way to turn.
Confused? Unsure? Don't know what to do next?
Maybe it's time to
If you are a person of faith, look up and cast your cares on your higher power. If you are an agnostic or atheist, look inward and listen to your inner voice. Fight for justice... not just against something but for some thing, some one, some group...
because one day the oppressed, the needy, the weak, and helpless could be YOU.
Wishing you a calm presence in your life this weekend, an assurance that we will survive.
As my friend, Gloria Gaynor sang, "At first I was a afraid. I was petrified..."
For my friends battling cancer, I send a special prayer on your behalf that you experience physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort and healing, a reprieve from worry and pain.
