My five-year-old is full of simple wisdom. “Love isn’t just a word,” he announced recently. “Love is an emotion. We need more love.”
Yes, Jacob, we do.
To that end, I’ve been writing on the wall of each of my Facebook pals, offering support, love, memories, and gratitude.
I’ve been drifting between anger, frustration, disbelief, hopeless, and fear since Tuesday. I am terrified about the ramifications of this election on the people I love.
Maybe I’ll find a way back to hope with the simple act of spreading love.
