I have been absent from blogging for a while because I moved, started my second book, and have been disturbed by what is going on in my country. Today another school shooting occurred. Fear is becoming a way of life for so many children. Right now the only thing I feel I can do is to pray for the children, families and all that are affected by each shooting. I can also send hopeful, loving energy to all of us. Finally, I will not sit quietly when conversations occur about what is happening in the White House, gun control, and anything that challenges the compassionate part of our human race. We are spiritual beings having a human experience and the spiritualness of each of us needs to rise up like the phoenix and spread its wings of compassion over this country and this planet.
