The longer it goes, the harder it gets …

It’s been ages since I wrote anything in this blog.  I find the longer it goes, the harder it gets to find something that’s worth breaking the silence. 

I’m not sure if I’ve been quiet because I have nothing to write about or because I have so much to write about I don’t know where to start.  There is so much to write about, with the election tomorrow and so many societal issues so visible, I do have a lot to say.  On the other hand, I don’t think my opinions are anything new … I have many ideas, but nothing original … sorry.

I am saddened, however, about the death of Madelyn Dunham, Barack Obama’s grandmother, who I came to love in reading Obama’s first book.  I believe they called her “toots”.  I think it is especially sad to think that she died only a couple of days before such a big event.  My prayers are with the Obama family.  May God grant you peace in these days filled with grief and with promise.
