It is Tuesday and the day I write for the Slice of Life blog. A day each week that I write about the happenings and the thoughts in my life. But today I have avoided my computer all day. Writing seems to difficult at this time. I have avoided words. Today is a day of reflection.
I know that many times it is writing and words that help us to process the events we find hard to understand or accept. I know that writing can bring a release of the emotions that spin wildly in our heads and our souls.
That said today I have no words that I feel are appropriate to say –
- the President
- the anger
- the loss of life
- the fear that builds in all our lives
It is all to much right now.
So what I can say is –
Take time away from the screens, talk to your family and friends, reach out to those who are in the line of fire – and take time to be quiet and reflect.
What are the values we wish to bring forward in our country?
Once you know what is important to you – model those values for others, talk about them and help others in a loving and peaceful way!
