Boy, it all kind of caught up with me last night.
Just a lot of sadness about things that are happening in our nation and world. . . things that are happening in my local area. . . Really cruel and destructive ICE raids happened here two days ago. . . Here they are described in the national news.
Sometimes, you just have to feel it. I certainly know I’m not the only one who feels this way.
Most importantly, my compassion goes to people who are directly affected. People are bearing the full weight of these forms of trauma. Our whole communities need to rally around these individuals and families in support.
Mr. Rogers has a song called, “What do you do with the mad that you feel?”
Last night, someone suggested that I watch Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. I did, and it was lovely to sit with some kindness. No regrets.
It makes me want to ask others – In the midst of all that is happening, what do you do with the sad that you feel? How are you feeling it and processing it? What’s helpful for you?
