Distractions, Welcomed!

This weekend has been horendous!

Two incidents of mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio. 

After I heard about a two year old was a victim of gun shot I had to turn away from all the news channels on the Canadian and the American channels.

I have sat down to write a post on this blog only to find a knot gnawing in my stomach.  I just couldn’t wrap my head around what was happening in my neighbours to the south of the border.  Forgive me, I just do not understand that level of hatred and to be perfectly honest I hope and pray I will never know it.  I can be angry at someone but never would the thought to do them harm or cause them to die be part of my anger.

On any other day I would write and say that I hate distractions, but this weekend I have done all that I can do to just find distractions.  I found myself watching old tv shows that I grew up with like sci-fi, and super heroes.  A very nice distraction on Sunday was my daughter once again surprised me with her visit.

So, for now I can say, “Distractions Welcomed”!
