Until it doesn't.
It started off as a good day with a morning trip to the gym to finish an audiobook.
Like most of my days, it did not start with listening to or reading the news online.
Ignorance is bliss when it comes to starting the day off peacefully.
Recently, many others have said as much and called the news depressing.
Today, that was even more so with the killing of 19 schoolchildren and 2 adults in Uvalde, TX.
Sadly, this school shooting follows ones in 2012 (CT), 1999 (CO), 2018 (FL) 2007 (VA) which killed nearly 100 students and teachers overall.
Most were young with full lives ahead, some children only 6 to 7 years old.
The latest murder spree comes 4 days after a Buffalo, NY mass killing left 10 dead.
When does it end?
Is gun control the answer or more awareness of mental health issues?
Sadly, there doesn't seem to be a clear-cut answer with advocates for both.
The world mourns together for lives senselessly lost.
Normally, this blog avoids commenting on current events, as opinions and attitudes differ.
Today, like so many others, my head and heart are filled with much sadness.
