Day 6

Today I awoke with a song in my heart. At 0824 the song died. I lost a coworker to an automobile accident. Depression settled on me. I confessed to another coworker recent suicidal thoughts. He and I cried together.

My head hurts my eyes are tight but I am not in full depression. I am about to get my teenage son from after school program. I shall hug and love him. He will wonder why? Yet I know how blessed I am.

Whew. The good of the day is I have cried but I am not down and out. I shall attend the events planned for the weekend, my mother insisted. I shall start phase two of getting fit Sunday. Phase two is staying focused under pressure.

Not another gun violence blog post

It is simple in my view, we have a problem.  We must ask why are assault weapons, weapons that spray when fired, required in civilian life.  I am not against gun ownership. I do question those who are arming themselves with weapons more suited for battle than stopping home invasion.  Are these people expecting the American government to attack them? Why?

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.
