- There is never a place for violence in our society-ANYWHERE- it's not acceptable
- Respect needs to be found......the killing of a judge, the wounding of an elected official-Where is the respect in all of this?
- Accepting people for who they are...It's plain and simple through this Mom's eyes. Everyone is a human being and deserves to be treated as one.
I live in Iowa, which some think is immune to all of this~ we are not! Just the other day, right across our border, in Nebraska, a 17 year old went on a wild rampage in a school....And a few months ago, a young man, from Minnesota came to Iowa and took the lives of two women working in convenience stores all within an hour of where I live. Another wake-up call for all of us~ Hug your kids, live life to the fullest...and somedays I must ask myself, "Do I really live in the United States, or somewhere else?" These acts of violence make this Mom a little edgy. Our country needs help, people need help~ If each one of us can reach out and positively impact the lives of someone, maybe we can make a difference. A big job that's for sure!
Just my ramblings of the tragedy in Tucson, Arizona............After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
