 Looks like Spring
Looks like Spring

I’d like to tell you about this picture. That I took it yesterday. That we have two growing seasons down here. That the weather is finally comfortable. And, that this picture is an example of that. But, while I was taking it, innocent people were dying in Oregon. Another mass shooting. In a school. A place of learning. Supposedly a safe place. Like a church. Or, a movie theater. The president is angry. The country is getting numb. The usual excuses are being made.

I have nothing more to say. I’m sad. I’m tired of the steady drumbeat of violence. Everywhere. What do you tell your children? What do you tell your friends? Your family? Your neighbors? What do you do? Where do you go? Where is safe?

These flowers are for Oregon. I wish them peace. I wish you peace.
