Day 23 – LSS Attitude of Gratitude – Blog/Sad News – There is always something to be grateful for, but today I hurt.

I started my blog eight hours ago. I was on a roll. I was looking forward to spending much of the day with my aunt. She will be 93 years old next month and I am grateful she is in my life.

Then I saw the horrific news. My spouse and I decided not to talk about the news with her. I know she gets the newspaper but is weeks behind in reading it. No need to spoil her day with the tragedy. I saw the horrible news when reading Facebook. I read the viewpoint of Blue Lives Matter, from the viewpoint of BuzzFeed News, and then the site I respect the most Kveller.com

The idea that a madman destroyed a family’s bris because of such misguided hatred saddens me to my core. Today I have much more grief, tears, and anguish than gratitude. Today I mourn for the victims and their families. Today I mourn for common decency. Today I mourn for the lack of sanity of way too many people.
