This has been a week for taking deep breaths! Terrible news was reported from throughout much of the country. There were pipe bombs sent to fourteen political leaders including a former president of the United States, two people were killed in racially motivated shooting at a Kroger store and eleven people were killed in a hate crime as they celebrated Sabbath at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. Those are three of the highlights or should I say the low lights of the week. Sometimes it feels like evil is winning. Again… Breathe! My heart hurts from all of the needless rhetoric, hate speech and the taking of human lives. We continue to hurt others by our words, they way we judge people as we remain uncompromising in our opinions.
