Chicago just had its 500th homicide, the most that they have had in one year since 2008.
Elsewhere, the NRA has vowed to fight an international treaty that would limit global arms trade.
I am living in the wrong time on the wrong planet.
Five hundred homicides in a year, in one city? An activist group trying to fight a treaty that would put a limit on arms sales at something like $50 billion? Are we all insane?
Bev and I have three years to go and then we are pulling the plug on this lifestyle. We will not have any bills in three years; we will be close to living off the grid in three years. We will be approaching self-sufficiency in three years.
I have no faith in governments to govern, and I have a very jaded opinion of a majority of the human beings I share this planet with.
However, still I am hopeful, and I find that amazing. If I were raising a small child now I would have some major concerns, and yet I look around and see some incredible acts of kindness that just blow me away. Every single time I think the worst of humans, they jump up and surprise me by being….human.
Living Simple….it is more important today than it ever was!
