It was not a slow news day in the world, at least in the USA and UK. Shootings in Washington DC involving congressmen and at a delivery company location in California. A tragic apartment fire at a high-rise complex killed 12. Not to mention all the stuff we have been hearing about for weeks in politics. Now there are stories that happened everywhere in the world but didn’t get reported for hours today. Our planet is a big place where breaking news happens locally and globally.
Many people have stopped watching the news but I say you have to keep informed these days. I am an idealist and optimist so bad stuff doesn’t get me down much but I am starting to understand the desperation people are feeling these days. When most news is bad news it really plays on ones emotions and psyche. My friends I say fear not which is something that is said in religious texts but even I fear a little because I am human. With political unrest and infighting it makes things even worse. Yes Wednesday, June 14th, 2017 was a horrible day but tomorrow is coming and there is a promise of hope there.
