This is a very sad time.

Today I have a podcast interview with pathtolearning.us. I do not know when the podcast will be aired, but will let you know at a later date. Today also, I'm expecting a carton of my new book to be delivered by UPS.

It is difficult, however, to think much of such mundane things as our country is purposefully torn apart.

On the one hand, we have the pandemic and a president far too inept and self-congratulatory in all things to mount an effective or humane response.

On the other hand, we have systemic racism and class division resulting in poverty and lack of equal opportunity that's pushed things to the brink of open warfare in the streets, with a president unable to feel what's felt and understood by others and that chooses to use violence against his own people, even when they are demonstrating peacefully as is guaranteed by our constitution and bill of rights.

I'm very sad. I have never seen our nation in such a disgusting mess. And I fear that it will get much worse before better.

Make, fix, create, and assist others in learning lifewise, even when it seems we are learning far too much and more than what we can handle.

  1. Yes, this is a profoundly sad time in our history, especially here in Minnesota. Yet there is hope in the power of the people to bring about systemic change. The images of peaceful protest, governors and police chiefs marching with their people, soldiers kneeling, youth taking leadership, all these are signs of a new beginning. That beginning must be ratified at the ballot box this fall. With minds, hearts and hands we can build a new order, a world more beautiful.
