I woke up this morning etremely thankful for the walls around me. The attack of the tornado over the weekend seemed unending, merciless, and painful to see the aftermath. It was for me painful to mind, body and spirit. I have already been struggling with whether to continue to read anymore about politics or world natural disasters.
The venom, lies, and hate that seems to be gushing from the Republican Party all across the nation like 100 tornadoes is damaging our nation, our national pride, and our common decency. Every day a new piece of really bad legislation is trying to be pushed through even though it makes no sense and is not taking our country forward but backward.
This man made perfect storm shows no end and that is why I have to get it out of my of my head. It is not good for my mind (since it makes no sense) or my spirit since I try to hold no "hate" toward anyone. This political character assisnation day after day and disaster after disaster heaped on the people of this country and the world has filled my cup. It is making me nauseous too much of the time.
So I am going to take a break from the news or political discourse (or at least try to) for the rest of this month. I need time to purge myself of all this negativity and promotion of hate in all its forms.
Hopefully I will be able to finish at least one book.
