Angel, Tarquinia, Italy
I had a blog post ready for today, but I've yanked it. The news coming out the Middle East has dampened my urge to amuse. I thought I'd been completely numbed by all these years of Iraq, but no. I feel like I've been punched in the gut.
The world can't go on like this. Although of course it always has, hasn't it?
Fighting has broken out between a land of people I've always admired deeply and the land from which my father's family came.
I read all I could about it, trying to decide whose side I'm on. Can't do it. There are not two sides. People are killing people. Human lives are being disrupted. All that matters is that this must stop.
If you pray, please pray for peace. If you don't pray, go out of your way to put a little goodness into the world today.
Maybe it'll help. Something had better. And soon.
