I’m standing at the Keurig, listening to its gurgle as it makes me a fresh cup of coffee.
My mind drifts, thinking yet again about how divided my country is because of politics.
My mind questions if maybe we need another 9/11 event to rejoin us as Americans.
I think about the casualties of that event, people who were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
I feel a tad bit guilty for even thinking that thought about a reoccurring event.
I then think about our armed services personnel, who have entered into battle to defend this country, and how, for them, it must have felt to have felled casualties during a violent battle to do so. Innocent human beings who were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
I feel ache in my heart that these brave heroes should have to live with that guilt.
And this, dear readers, is why I titled my blog “Ramblings and Ruminations”. This is how my mind sometimes wanders in a path far from its original thought in a short time frame.
Welcome to a clear view of my struggles….
One thought on “This is why, because this just happened…”
Reasonable thoughts imo, saddest days in any country’s history is probably civil war. Abraham Lincoln did not seek war, it was thrust on him before he was sworn in. A country naturally wants to feel whole and going in one direction – it would be horrific if war, civil or not, was that uniting force.
