This morning I woke up to news filled with videos of what I can only describe as hate. Hate fueled by anger over what some may call perceived, but others may just simply say is an injustice, and feelings of inequality. I am not going to post my thoughts and feelings about what happened last night… I don’t believe that my blog is the place… but I will talk about how I can only hope and pray that my daughter will never know the hatred of these situations. I pray we come to a place where such atrocities will no longer occur.
Annabelle is just so innocent. The scariest anomaly in her life is the vacuum cleaner. It makes loud noises and she doesn’t understand it. Her current aspiration is to not get caught putting a sock in the toilet. She doesn’t know anything about monsters or scary shadows in the night. Violence does not exist in her world. Hate is a feeling she has never felt. “Hate …it has caused a lot of problems in this world, but it has not solved one yet.- Maya Angelou.”
