Tragedy in Real Time

I’m exhausted and mentally drained after what we have experienced in life on this planet and in the details reported on television, internet and radio this week. I was going to write a post about it, but this article from NPR does a better job and really sums it up. Another note: One of the … [Read more…]

I am, We are…

I am a runner. But I won’t stop running races because of the events on April 15, 2013. I am a volunteer. We have all volunteered. And I am thankful for the volunteers who ran towards the attack to help those in need in the middle of a chaos and fear. I am a learner. … [Read more…]

It’s been over a week since my last post. Every time I’ve gone to write, I’ve realized that I was too busy or too overwhelmed and there wasn’t anything worth writing that needed to be done right then.
