Wanted: Good News

I have to admit, I have started three or four posts over the course of the week, and erased every single draft.

I am simply at a loss for words.

They say bad things happen in threes-well--I can prove that superstition wrong, because over the course of the past week, there's been a mall shooting in Portland (I used to shop at that mall, once upon a time),   A mass shooting of schoolchildren and teachers in Conneticut, a mass stabbing of children in Beijing on the very same day, and just when it my heart strings couldn't be pulled anymore, news of 7 year-old Santa Barbara native Daisy Merrick's continuing battle with cancer. Her grandfather, Al Merrick is a famous surfboard shaper, and her father, Britt founded Reality church which has spread in popularity across America.

Children shouldn't know pain like these children who have witnessed the brutal killings, or pain like Daisy with her cancer treatments. They should have their innocence. They should be protected.

I'm ready for some good news right about now.

A miracle, perhaps?
