Strange And Sad Days Indeed

Today has been a combination of observances the revolve around love and then there was another school shooting in Florida. Valentines Day, Ash Wednesday and violence acts have made this day a very sad and strange one. Love is love and love wins but on days when Christians begin the season of Lent and a day of romance has converged its quite unusual.

My heart is somber and sad and yes I am angry about the ending of innocent lives in yet another school. Why must things like happen, why? My friends we should hold our families and friends closer. Our prayers should come with action. Thoughts of changing things for real should take place.

Celebrating two things will come again when Easter and April Fools will be celebrated on the same day. Strange and sad days indeed.

Remember you are dust, and to dust you shall return. #ashwednesday #episcopal #anglican #ashes #etdio
