I sit here and watch
The sun rises over a despondent world...
and I wonder why

Jay...Why do you feel that this world holds no hope? There is hope in this world and you have just have to get away from your current situation. I realize you may feel the need to protect your mother but she is a grown woman. She needs to be able to take care of herself. Go...start your own life.

Peace and Tranquility all depends on your frame of reference.

There is usually no answer to the big "why" questions. What would an answer do? Clearly it would be some solution that would make all this okay. But can you imagine any answer that would make it all okay? I can't.

That's what makes some problems a real challenge: they call on us to move ahead and reclaim our own lives even though we don't have the answers we want for what has happened in the past. That's also why survivors get advised all the time to spend as little time as possible in the past. We can learn from the past, sure, but the past leaves a lot unanswered. If we keep looking back there for those non-existent answers we will spin our wheels in the past forever.

Much love,

This land was made for you and me.
