Gun violence in Minneapolis has erupted in 48 hours 22 people were shot and 2 people died from their wounds. Police trying to give aid were pelted with objects.
This is beyond my understanding – mass shootings into cafe crowds, seventeen-year old teen shot and shoved out of a car and that was just the beginning. Pull on one thread and everything slowly unravels. Someone said that before.

I read that “people” are moving out of the city to the country. No surprise there for me because even before all the protests and tragedy in Minneapolis and the rest of the country began, there was a longing in me to leave the crowded city for a more restful place.
A decay has set in from within our society. “The Late Great United States” is what I am observing around me. Looking within myself, I recognize that my patience is worn thin from the turmoil and divisiveness that is swirling around this country.
