The distress of reading these books was compounded by family discussion on Easter. Some of the family attended the "March for our Lives" in Washington last weekend. The pain and agony in the world seems overpowering.
I am reminded of a poem by William Wordsworth:
We all need balance in our lives- in our reading as well as life itself. Spring is in the air and the world is full of possibility.
Oh, yes, the winner of Canada reads was "Forgiveness". Jeanne Beker really did a good job of promoting the book and had some thoughtful things to say about the need, in the midst of such world crises (yes, that means more than one), to 'build your soul'. Amen!
