Nothing To Offer, Sorry
I have spent a lot of time over the last two days reading about the violent act in Arizona. I have read news reports, blog responses, looked at pictures and listened to short blips of news on the internet.
All of these conduits of information make me feel I am required to do something but I have no idea what the proper thing to do is.
I can't change the world. I have a hard enough time just trying to uproot the violence in myself much less the rest of the world.
I'm not a social activist. I am too much of a wimp for such as that.
Does this make me a apathetic?
I certainly don't have any suggestions for what the causes are or what the answers are for whatever the causes may be. I'm not informed enough for such things.
I am a simple guy, who loves simple things, who loves his family and friends and who just wishes we could all get along.
I am also wise enough to know that will never be a reality.
When the winner does win, what does he or she win?
