Persistance of Memory

Today is Verteran’s Day in the U.S. and I find myself remembering all the many lives we have lost, the human potential diverted, the injuries, both mental and physical, all stemming from the same tragic state of an increasingly violent and hateful world.

A Permanent State of Mourning

When I first wrote this post, I knew that there would be more terror, more deaths and more sorrow ahead of us. While it is impossible to make sense of something so horrible, we can explore recent events by reviewing how hatred can re-wire a brain that was born to love and help others. Every time this happens, it happens to all of us – and is a failure of all of us to connect and communicate.
