Trying to make sense of it all

All of us are happy to see an end to 2020, and I for one am hopeful for 2021, but it hasn’t started out well. I am angry, saddened, and shocked by what transpired on our Capitol last week. The more I see people hurting other people, what some extremist intended to do with bombs, weapons, and zip ties, sickens me. What are we doing?!? “We the people” are not “this” – we are the United States! We are the example of every nation on this earth to look to. We are BETTER! We must DO BETTER!

I don’t know how to make sense of what is happening. I can only hope that justice will happen to those who broke the law, damaged the Capitol, and hurt others people physically. There are consequences to our actions, and that starts at the top. No one is above the law.

What happened to the Golden Rule? Treat others as we want to be treated? We need to help one another, be kind every day, lend a helping hand when we can, and let service to others be our first action. We have experienced so much pain with Covid-19, let’s move forward in being healthy for 2021.

Let’s help spread love and kindness. Be mindful in the words we use, because our words matter. Let’s pray for others who are suffering or hurting. When I look at others, I remind myself how grateful I am for my life. I see the blessings I’ve received. I appreciate the people who made a difference in my life.

Bottom line….. I’m very grateful.

Much love and kindness,
