It has been a somber week.
I told my husband that my mind can barely fathom all that’s occurred.
Admittedly I have no answers.
My deeply introverted soul is still processing this.
While I was driving this week I looked up…and paused when I saw a flag at half-staff.
This image stayed with me, almost like an imprint.
For many reasons there has been too much mourning.
We live in a world with many shades of gray, yet we are often challenged by absolutes.
I am far from perfect at maneuvering through all this.
Still, somehow, we all must move forward.
I am a realist, so I am cautious.
Still, I remind myself to act with kindness…
To act with patience…
To act with respect…
To act with peace.
