I haven’t been cooking or baking much in the last few days. I’ve been so busy preparing for Christmas: decorating the house, trimming the tree, shopping for gifts, wrapping gifts. The usual stuff that people who celebrate Christmas do.With last Friday’s horrific tragedy, my heart and mind are in a bit of a dark place. Like everyone with young children (although mine are 16 and 12), I cannot fathom the heartwrenching pain and confusion the parents, siblings and loved ones of the fallen are experiencing, especially at such a child-centric time of year.
For today, I thought I’d leave you with some messages that I find inspirational. Maybe together, we can figure this thing out. There are no simple solutions; it’s not just about gun control or helping the mentally ill or dealing with angry and entitled white males. It’s a bit of everything and then some.
