No Filter Friday

I almost have no words for how angry I am this week at all that has been happening. Somehow I'll conjure up a few to get through this post.
The events that happened at the Boston Marathon on Monday and the subsequent attempt to capture those suspects today has me reeling. The simple fact that we as a people have to deal with things out of our control like death and cancer is bad enough. Having to worry about going to marathons, movie theaters, school because some psycho might shoot or blow me up is just too much to wrap my head around.
I refuse to believe that this is the world we live in and there is nothing we can do about it. I want to know how I'm supposed to live my life and expect my children to live theirs when there is a possibility this could certainly happen wherever we go.
I don't want to live in fear, but I feel that I am. This is "supposed" to be the greatest country in the world. How and why is this happening here?
I know the good outweighs the bad. I also know I'm not foolish enough to believe it could never happen to me or someone I love.
I don't have the answers. I don't even have suggestions. I just know there needs to be a change.

  1. You are so right. I have no answers either. All I know to do is focus on the good. That's all I know. Mr. Roger's (are you old enough to remember him?) mother told times like this...."there will always be people helping." I think that's about all we can say to the children. Much more and we aren't being truthful...but there really will always be someone to help.
