shock is a strange feeling. it knocks the wind out of you.

This is not my originally scheduled post. But there has been a heaviness in my heart for the last few days..and it seemed only right to acknowledge it. Deep down, I have always believed two basic things: that good wins over evil and that people are intrinsically decent. The events of Tuesday evening proved this is untrue. We are living in a world full of hatred and anger. People are consumed with self-interest rather than the good of all.

Honestly, I had a full day where I felt depressed, hurt, and betrayed. I even bought containers of ice cream to ease my sorrows. All the while, I kept thinking: how could this happen? 

With so much negativity in the world today, I wanted to share a quote with you that is helping me deal with this sense of loss and injustice. I hope it helps you too.

This is a time to come together....and keep fighting for what is right.
