A Heavy Heart

There are many things I choose not to write much about on my blog. I always wanted this to be a place without stress or arguments — a place of well being for all who visit here.

All day I have felt such heaviness about the violence as a result of U.S. decisions to remove troops from Syria. I am certainly not qualified or educated enough to know what our role in the Middle East should be. But we were there.

All I know is that too many innocent people are suffering and dying. And more will follow. People we pledged to stand behind. It is hard to talk about the joys of my life when so many are suffering.

Why must there be so much hate? I do not understand. I will never understand.

I support organizations on the ground giving aid. I will vote. And I will pray.
