There is one thing about growing older that is frustrating. We won’t live to help our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren find hope when we self destruct. It is so hard not to worry about the polarization our country is experiencing. How do we get to the point where those with opposing opinions can talk without becoming angry and abusive.
What are we to do? I can remember when our representatives actually listened to each other and considered what was presented to them.
Currently we have states who have banned any abortion even when the mother has an ectopic pregnancy which will kill her. Oh well what, does the life of the mother matter.
Then there are states which allow killing of an infant who is full term and call it an abortion.
Has the whole world gone crazy?
(I know this sounds extreme but I have actually read the laws in the two states above. I have deliberately left out the names.)
Sometimes it feels as if I will never achieve some sort of normalcy in my life. I can go several days feeling well and settled and then IBSD hits me and I am back in the doldrums. I long for balance. I hope that I can find it before long. Maybe this is just the way that it will be as I continue to grow older. Maybe acceptance is the answer.
