“Most of life is hell. It’s filled with failure and loss. People disappoint you, dreams don’t work out, hearts get broken, innocent journalists die, and the best moments of life, when everything comes together, are few and fleeting, but you will never get to the next great moment if you don’t keep going. So that’s what I do, I keep going.” – Political Animals
Like many of us, I woke up this morning to the heart-breaking news of the theater shooting in Colorado. In reading the details, I got alternately disgusted and upset beyond words. That a person would plan and execute this act of horrible evil is beyond my comprehension. I am still having trouble understanding the depths of the depravity required to commit this act. My thoughts and prayers are with all who have been affected by this tragedy.
I included the quote above from a new television show I started watching because I believe it sums up what many of us are feeling now – what many of us feel when those truly horrible things happen for no reason and all we are left feeling is helpless.
I know that nothing that anyone says can help ease the pain and suffering that the victims and their families are experiencing now, but I know that for the coming weeks, months and years they will be surrounded in prayer and thoughts from around America and the world. It gives me hope that even though there is great evil in this world, there is also great kindness and love. I choose to believe that the good in our world far outweighs the bad. God Bless.
