This has been a really sad week, news-wise. From the despicable depths our nation’s leaders are sinking to in order to win an election to the suicide of Tyler Clementi, which will undoubtedly ruin many lives connected to the whole sordid affair, it seems like things on earth are spiraling downward. So I’ve decided to remind everyone (and myself) of the wonderful things we still enjoy on our planet.
|Bernini’s “Rape of Proserpina”|
Yes, it’s true. As difficult as children are and as much as they make me want to lock
them myself in the closet, my days would be much darker without the light from their eyes and much colder without the warmth from their little embraces.
So the next time you find yourself clicking through the news, despairing of the world we live in, just remember: flowers, Italy, chocolate, art, cheese, wine and children. God still loves us.
