Got a call today from a new friend. Wanted to know how I was. Actually pretty good, but mumbled, “Okay…and you?”
It was the societal level stuff. Deeper there’s inner quarreling on how honest I should be with people; it’s an honest debate. Often I choose politeness, makes it easier. You, too?
Reading the news…from MSN and Yahoo on my computer and Huffington on my I-Phone…leaves me at wit’s end…and probably at sanity’s end. How much we tolerate. Believe Tillerson nailed it by his bemoan of alternate news, a euphemism for dishonestly and deceit. And when someone said, “So, what?” when I asked why Trump called some immigrants “animals” and refuses to apologize for the dastardly person who remarked “McCain will die soon.”—morality is absent—at least in my lexicon.
Then. Then. Then.
Thank God there’s a “THEN.” And for this woman, who planned to drive off a bridge, but a car zoomed by her and scared her, so she decided not to leave her five children motherless, she made a decision. A decision that encouraged her, raised her spirits and let her go into a private room or closet and cry the pain into less pushiness. Her children refused to give up on her. And. Now.
The link got my attention…along with a 94-year-old getting her GED. But, this woman, oh, my, talk about impressive. I bet she’ll become a great attorney…and too seldom is that said these days.
But. That’s another story for another day. Read the link…good news unto itself:
