There are no words for what happened in Paris
I read my newsletter from Indie Business Network this morning where this tragedy was shared. I had not heard about it as I was preparing for a craft show Friday and Saturday was the craft show and I was like a vegetable Saturday night. I was in my cocoon of ignorance until this morning when I read about what had happened. As above I am at a loss for what words to comment and feeling helpless at what to say to this country that was hit at its heart and the victims and their families and friends and the whole of France.
I sit here empty and sick at heart at this tragedy. How do you heal this great hurt and how to fight back and say no more? I at times get so frustrated with this world, well not the world but the people in it. We are a confusing and hurtful lot whether its having road rage or getting angry at a cranky tired child. Growing up to be angry and end up getting a gun and killing a fellow student or joining a terrorist group and feeling you are part of something greater and end up blowing up and killing people. It seems like things are spinning out of control and we cannot feel safe.
I just know that I can control myself, most times and try to be a better person. I want to love my children and friends and make sure they know it. I know these words have been said many times before and will be again but this is all I have for now. We need to keep picking ourselves up when we fall down and do not forget those we love and try to share that love with those we meet.
Sending love and prayers out to the people of France and hope they know we are here with them.
