I have had a summer beyond all summers... memories and fun and travel and love. I have a grandbaby! I was in a killer show! I saw dear relatives! I spent time with best friends!
But today, I can hardly remember the joy. I'm overwhelmed by the world. What is happening? I can barely recognize my country.
Take time to reach out, friends. Stretch your hand past the insulated world you've created by blocking and accepting people on social media. Get to know someone else from across town, across cultures, across religions, across beliefs. You don't have to agree with them. But knowing them will help you see the world from their perspective and will help you show compassion and empathy. Until we're able to do that, we'll never move forward.
We're better than this. Love will prevail. We can do it.
