It’s been SO long since I’ve linked up with Friday Fragments! I’m looking forward to jumping right back in. What is Friday Fragments? Basically they are bits and pieces or snippets of your week. Those things that happened or things you’ve felt that were important but not quite long enough for an entire post. Join us, the more the merrier!
The host of Friday Fragments is Traci:
Is it Friday already? Well, I guess that means I have some fragging to do. Welcome to Friday Fragments. If you haven’t fragged before, Friday Fragments is a place to share those thoughts, quips, and tidbits that don’t quite make a whole post, e.g. fragments or frags.
It has been such a sad and terrifying week. Terrorism seemed to dominate the news. The Egypt Air Crash, the attack on and murder of Israeli citizens and the murder of 49 Americans at a night club in Florida.
Another terror attack was thwarted in California. I believe that is the answer. Speaking up, telling, snitching whatever you call it that is what needs to be done and every report made needs to be taken seriously and investigated without fear of being politically incorrect. In all of these cases someone knew what was going to happen.
Christine Grimmie a Voice finalist was shot as she opened her arms to hug a fan. That deranged fan travelled to Florida with the intent to kill her. Someone had to know.
Continuous bloviating about changing gun laws does nothing to change gun laws. Actually enforcing gun laws would help. Fixing the issues with the No Fly list would help advance stalled legislation. Prosecuting those that know of an attack and do nothing to report would help. President Obama and Paul Ryan actually leading and encouraging Congress to come up with common sense solutions would help.
That poor baby boy that was taken and drown by that alligator, I just can’t stop seeing his little face. I just can’t get mad at the parents. I do hope we all learn to pay more attention to signs.
This is why I needed to participate in Friday Fragments. Holding on to these heavy thoughts is too much.
I had a visit from this beauty yesterday.
It let me walk right up to it and take a photo. When I looked up the meaning of a visit from a dove, it all made sense. It can be a message that someone passed away peacefully. That was a message I needed.
Last weekend I attended the Philadelphia Writer’s Conference. I learned so much, was inspired to start a few new projects and had the chance to catch up with some of my favorite people. (this is Susan)
My husband and the best friend ever kidnapped me for a quick beach getaway. I could not stop smiling!
We had a grandchild graduate kindergarten, another graduate 8th grade and 4 birthdays with more of those coming next week. Where’s Santa when I need him…
It feels good to be back!
Have a blessed weekend everyone,
