The Shores of Alone
I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with the bad news these last few weeks. I have heard of so many people dying in fires, trying to keep warm with little space heaters. Mothers, babies,teens, brave firefighters trying to save them, and losing their lives as well.
Now the recent workplace massacre, in a city fairly close to me, is the last straw. Why is this world so horrible? Why are so many suffering? I know that no one has the answers, but it seems that the world is just falling apart. How do you have holiday cheer, and hope for the future, with this going on all around us?
And today my sisters cat died. A sweet old boy, greatly loved. Small to some, but very sad for her.
I know we all have our own personal dissapointments and tragedies. It just feels like there is so much more of that happening, not just to me, but to the world.
I want to keep the dreams alive. The positive thoughts, the hopes, the love.
(just had to share this, I feel so sad for all these families)
Hope you all have a good new year.
