No More

“At the table of peace, there will be bread and justice.” (Unknown)

All week, I’ve been pondering a post for this blog. I’m tired. I’m discouraged. I’m angry. My usual commentaries on kindness, living through a pandemic, or a government that has utterly failed its responsibilities to its citizens seem inadequate. And even if they weren’t, I’m angry, I’m tired, I’m discouraged.

I read a post this morning from Charlescearl’s Weblog that said what I wish I had the words to say, and what I wish all people will take the time to read. His final line gives me hope…

  3. I think it’s hard not to be discouraged right now and to have hope for the future. The pandemic was bad enough, but then we had a senseless and unnecessary death and the violence that it caused. It seems to be a vicious cycle that we can’t find our way out of, which is beyond discouraging. If only we could learn from the past…..instead, we seem to keep repeating it.
