This news junkie is taking a break from too many days of senselessness, restless protest, and utter failure by community leaders to use fair judgement, create an atmosphere of healing and understanding, and commitment to making "it" stop. So, I'm trying to focus on happy thoughts; not dwelling on the terribleness of "today." Granted, it is not "my" terrible, but it does create feelings of sadness, hopelessness, exhaustion, but mostly heartache. Especially tough today was seeing a tweet about tragic loss of a captured journalists. It was time to step away.
No news is good news, if you can force yourself to avoid it.
