I just walked into my home and sat down at the computer. I was out most of the day and spent a lot of time speaking with many different people about the state of the world. I am disappointed to say that right now I feel like I am living in an angry world.
There is so much anger and unrest lying beneath the surface. I listened as people ranted and raved about the response to the hurricane, the price of gas and to their problems with the government. I watched their facial expressions and I saw a lot of fear and uncertainty.
And now with the death of the Chief Justice I expect to see the tension grow thicker and the partisanship increase.
I cannot accept all this negativity. I cannot endure this much negative energy without growing despondent and melancholy. So I decided to take a moment to consider all of the positives, all of the blessings in my life.
A healthy family, incredible children, amazing love in a secret world, friends I would die for and friends that would die for me, a job that has potential and a home.
So in the end I have to say that things are very good and I am very thankful for that. I am going to do what I can to help make things better not just for my family but for those around me because I think that it is the right thing to do and I don’t see how it could hurt.
My request to all of you is to do something for someone else. It doesn’t have to be big, just a little thing to make someone smile. Those little things add up and maybe just maybe we can work together to make the world a happier place.
