I haven’t blogged about the horrific mass murder in Orlando.  I don’t really know what to say that won’t sound trite or cliche-ish, but  am becoming more and more heartbroken by the level of hate and violence in our country and the fact that we, as a so-called civilized nation, have no real political will to do anything about it.  I was encouraged a bit that Senator Chris Murphy was at least willing to try.  

In the aftermath, I thought this from Project Happiness was worth remembering.

Where do we fit in this great big world?

I’ve also been so disheartened by the very light sentence given to the Stanford rapist.  I hope parents of boys will read this article and raise sons who will treat females with respect and dignity.

A more peaceful passage of time?

This cracks me up.

Happy weekend, all.  Stay tuned for dispatches from our road trip.
