Whenever I find myself down and in need of comfort, I end up somewhere on the National Mall. Apparently this is my major coping technique.
I will hang this in my house for my children to imprint on their brains
Two Saturdays ago I witnessed an atrocity that shook me to the core. I didn't step in when I feel like I should have, I allowed an innocent to suffer and didn't make a difference in the life of one who couldn't defend himself. The situation itself was awful but I am more disturbed by myself.
I ended up down at MLK after the incident and sobbed (and sobbed and sobbed) when I saw the quote above. What a great reminder of who I want to be.
