I get a sinking feeling when I:
know family members hurt and I can't fix them
learn I haven't learned much
find people fully motivated by money and fame
see the beautiful countryside torn asunder by development
see clear lakes infested with waste
see leaders increase their wages while the poor, young, and old starve
learn that wars haven't been educational
realize I've morphed into the old crone and the feeling isn't new - I posted it here 'way back then.
More than a few sinking feelings have attacked lately but I'm still afloat. And glad to see how many others are!
