Maybe staying away from the news for awhile, just avoiding facebook, not listening to radio squawking: I'm trying to put together ways to calm and relax a few people whose conversations I've overheard. Well, maybe not overheard--sounded like these people really want someone to listen to them.
They'll talk to anyone--when you go get and get gas, behind you at the grocery store, while at school pick up. Post election disappointment, anger, distraught.
I want to remind them of perspective, optimism, healthier ways to gather up their emotions and move forward as a country.
But I know people are worried, full of anxiety, concern over our nation and wanting an end to the hyper-division we felt during what seemed like a very long presidential campaign.
I want to help, because I am a child of an immigrant, and I know this country is wonderful enough that people around the world pin their dreams on "coming to America."
Last night, I came up with just the thing.
Something to give to those who can't bring themselves to smile this week:
|A baby hedgehog!!|
|OMG ... THREE!!!|
|Could you not die from the cute??|
See ... it's all going to be all right.
