  1. i feel sickened by all the violence. I have been watching a series on TV about the 60’s- Vietnam War, desegregation etc and it just keeps on keeping on….i feel sad & discouraged!!!

    • Somedays, it is almost too much to bear! Because of the accessibility to all things global, the world knows what everyone is doing at the moment it happens. Before, time filtered the horrors, today we live the horrors minute by minute. Will instant knowledge of current happenings make humans better? or more apathetic and insular? Only time will tell.
      Great to hear from you!. L.
