Seems the past few weeks have brought nothing but sad story after devastating news. A number of friends dealing with hard times and horrible tragedies, a frightening experience in my own family, and then there's the messed up country we live in and the thousands of tragedies (travesties?) being committed in the name of Democracy. There's never any rhyme or reason to these things. Whether the tragedies occur on a smaller, more personal scale, or on a war-size scale, they are all equally difficult to understand. I don't claim to have any enlightening words of wisdom, I just wanted to give my wish for peace and comfort to those affected in all places.
