I sat at this light crying today. Wanna know why? Because this is the world going on. This is the world that keeps moving when somehow I struggle too. Do they not know that a young mentally ill man walked in one of our cultures most scared places and shot people after looking them in the eye. That space isn’t scared.
Then my tiny town is being ravaged by flood waters and people and businesses are being consumed by flood waters.
And I wonder am I normal? I can’t just drive on this road and go get my double rations of groceries because I am separated from my town by 25 feet of a flooded river. I mean I did it. But it feels funny.
When others are hurting I truly struggle to not have my heart burst open. I guess that is just me.
