I can’t post anything this week. I want to. I had something in rough draft I had been working on. And then yesterday happened. As of right now, 59 dead, more than 500 injured, many of them very, very seriously. How can I write about my ridiculously little problems, my little foibles, and how I’m trying to meditate more and exercise more and eat better and stay sober? Of course, these things are important, but tonight… I just can’t.
What has become of us? How did we get here? And how do we get out? And why are we still pointing fingers instead of trying to fix it?
This is not about partisan politics. This is not about the Second Amendment. It’s about how we, as humans, can continue to be shocked and outraged and simultaneously continue to do nothing.
I don’t know what the answer is. I don’t know if ANYONE knows what the answer is. All I know is tonight I am so weary of what we, humans, are doing to ourselves and each other. And I just can’t…
