So many difficult stories flood the news today and many of them threaten our sense of well-being, or at the very least muddle our perception of who we are as members of a community, as Canadians.
As with most ostriches, I turn the television off and cringe and hope things will be different for my grandchildren.
Hoping is a lovely sentiment but is not actually participating in a remedy for those things that lead us into the darkness. But conversation helps. Listening helps.
