Waiting

I don’t know why I’m nervous, it’s going to be over soon. These months, well years, of waiting. I hold my breath, and suddenly realize my shoulders are tight, my nerves are tingling, and today the waiting ends. The ‘what ifs’ sneak in, my anxiety pitched above reason. “Let go,” my mind screams, but my… Continue reading Waiting

70 Years—What has changed?

At the end of World War II, a U.S. Army General sent a letter to all personnel being discharged from the service at Fourth Army Headquarters in Fort Sam Houston, Texas. General J. M. Wainwright was Commander of that Post and the writer of that letter. Did he think his words would be remembered? Could he have believed that in… Continue reading 70 Years—What has changed?

What is Your Choice?

Donald Trump’s latest braggadocios comment has left me saddened, frightened, and appalled (with 2 p’s)! In case you missed it, he said,  “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s, like, incredible.” Is this true? Would he not lose any followers? Would his base cheer him on like fifth graders… Continue reading What is Your Choice?
