Today is still a hard day.
I saw this video this morning and rejoiced. I am not the only one. I am proud of my heritage, my family, my values. I will not be frightened away by the worst of society. I will move forward.
Today is Halloween. Today children all over the US will go door to door asking for treats. I have fond memories of taking my daughters trick or treating. I loved to make their costumes when they were little. I am grateful that they liked the finished product. Halloween is a fun holiday where we do silly things. I long for silly days instead of sad days.
Today as parents take their little ones door to door I hope they are grateful for the gifts of freedom that we have. We are free to celebrate. We are free to enjoy our neighborhoods. We must slowly move forward without forgetting the tragedies around the world but knowing that gratefully there is more good than evil.
