UnrestMarch 18, 2011
Each day there is more frightening news from the Middle East and northern Africa. As far as I can tell, the list of countries with current or recent demonstrations against their governments, or currently engaged in war, is the same as you and I listed last week:
That’s a scary list. People are dying. You know how war and talking of war makes me cry. That list is a looming bucketful of tears.
With Iran and North Korea flexing their nuclear muscles, Japan having just been slammed by a 9.0 earthquake followed by a devastating tsunami and nuclear reactor meltdowns, and all of the regular negative stuff we always hear, the news has been decidedly dismal lately.
But spring is here (according to the calendar, anyway)! I’ll take it.
