current events

"I see your gun, and I'll raise you a daisy." That popped into my head today. (Thought I'd put it in the blog so it has a date stamp. I think it's my own quote--correct me if you've heard it elsewhere.)

I was thinking about current events and I realized that hate is destroying our nation and our species.

I've never been in the position our parents were in--facing down National Guardsmen on college campuses, marching arm-in-arm, being struck by the force of water from a firehose. I am not sure I ever will be. I am a mom, and orphaning my child is a deterrent.

But I'm fired up.
