I’ve been meaning to write over the past couple weeks. There have been some heavy news stories that have reminded me to be grateful for how wonderful I’ve got it.
I was gutted when I heard the Oscar Postorius sentencing. He may serve 10 months before being released to some type of house arrest. I suppose no one will ever know what really happened in that house that night. ..but South Africa has a terrible record of violence against women. I was desperately hoping for a severe sentence in the hopes that it send a message that violence is never the answer. Then, much closer to home, a mom & her 5 year old daughter were murdered but it took days to find the beautiful little girl’s body. Tragic. It’s been a terrible few weeks where International news report too many horrors occurring around the globe. And then to the South of us we’ve got the mind-boggling presidential election campaigning.
Of course, life goes on for us & we are busy adventuring this summer. I’ve been savouring time with Jenn & her daughter as they’re spending most of July in Edmonton.
