Sometimes I believe that we find patterns and "plans" because we can't face the tragedies all around us. Hungry children, abandoned pets and victims of natural disasters are the news. Perpetual war isn't even a story. We just need the statistics.
Hate crimes, domestic terrorism? Fashionable.
These times bring to mind for me the era of assassinations in this country, losing the Kennedys and Dr. King. Hope.
Oh, for hope and innocence again.
