The way I see it, that’s not sticking my head in the sand, that’s being the change I want to see happen. So instead of joining the masses of crazed shoppers who didn’t even look back as they trampled a poor WalMart worker to death, I visited with my elderly parents a while longer on Friday. Instead of turning off the television and not listening to the news from India, I listened as they told me more stories about their experience in the Foreign Service, when they were stationed in Pakistan and Turkey in the 1950s.
Even Fritz enjoyed our time there.
And today, Unnamed Partner and I are planning a visit with friends in the country, to walk the dogs and enjoy the afternoon.
I’m not ignoring this current state of the world. I just choose not to be a part of ithe insanity. At least for this weekend. We have to start at home.
