Students - Sometimes I feel a great need to write about something. Today that something is peace. In the light of too many shootings on our streets, in our schools, in this country, I do feel like I am holding my heart in two pieces. As I glue it back together with love, I commit to helping our country work toward peace.
When you find yourself not sure what to think about a difficult situation, know that writing is always here for us. It may not make the bad thing go away, but it can help us understand it...and sometimes through our writing, we can find a way to heal or even a way out.
Peace to you all this week.
This month you can find a wonderful post at my other blog, Sharing Our Notebooks. Cynthia Grady, author of I LAY MY STITCHES DOWN: POEMS OF AMERICAN SLAVERY shares some of her favorite notebooks, behind the scenes of this beautiful book, and she offers a giveaway too.
