• I’m right there with you–feeling like crying or screaming with what’s happening to children at our borders. As you say, we can keep protesting in any way we can. My Oregon senator has heard us and is speaking out. It’s so hard when it feels there is so little we can do as individuals. But I believe every ‘we won’t stand for this’ will be heard.

    Wishing swift healing for your dad.

    Sending good energy your way too. May the MS symptoms remain at bay.

  • Hi Jeannine,

    Sorry to hear about the deluge of the blues. Pneumonia is rough! I’ve had it more than once because I’ve got extra deep lungs and my resistance is down because of meds. They help ya and then hurt ya at the same time! Yuck…

    I wish our country would learn to be more kind. You are a wonderful, inspiring person who does a lot to help others, so don’t be so hard on yourself!
