“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
(Thank you Linda at Teacher Dance for sharing this Tolkien quote.)
I have spent most of this week writing about the madness that happened in Orlando. I started the week with a feeling of sadness and frustration that these killing keep happening in our country. When the President drew it to the country’s attention that this was the 15th time in 8 years that he has spoken after this type of killing, I started to feel a sense of anxiety about the world I was leaving to my grandchildren. Then my blogging community responded with so many heartfelt words that I have ended the week with a renewed sense of belief in the goodness of my fellow travelers on this planet.
BUT A LITTLE COMMON SENSE REGARDING GUN CONTROL WOULDN’T HURT.
Wishing you a peace filled week,
