Even taken a sabbatical from social media and the news hasn't lifted my spirits.

I don’t know how you are feeling these days, but I’ve lost my appetite to blog, or spend any time whatsoever on social media, or read the news.

My heart once again is broken for the innocent people visiting, and those who reside in the tourist town of Las Ramblas. I have a friend who had relatives who were in that exact spot two hours before the attacks. Then upstairs in the safety of their hotel room, which faced out toward the street they heard the screams as the horror of the unthinkable cowardly act unfolded.

#45 IMMEDIATELY called this a terrorist attack, but has yet to do the same about the white 20 year old American who did the exact same thing to a group of fellow Americans on American soil. Same tactic, different comment from the man who unfortunately is President.

I honestly cannot even anymore with the world as a whole. I’m preferring to stick to my own little bubble of the world in Toronto, going to my Godson’s wedding, celebrating new beginnings instead of only knowing about all that’s evil and wrong in our world.

Vince Gill sang this song, let there be peace on earth…and I believe the best thing we can do is start within ourselves and work our way outward. We need to be the peace we want in the world. We need to be the love that the world needs and give it freely, today more than ever.
I’ll leave you with these lyrics while I spend the rest of my weekend digging deep within myself to find the reasons why I should even bother to continue to fight for the good I want to see in this world. Because honestly my friends, at the rate we’re going, which is backward at 200mph, it seems like peace and love will never be accomplished in my life time.
God help us all, and may these lyrics lift you up and inspire you to keep doing what’s right.
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me
Let There Be Peace on Earth
The peace that was meant to be
With God as our Father
Brothers all are we
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.
Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With ev’ry step I take
Let this be my solemn vow
To take each moment and live
Each moment in peace eternally
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me
