Give me peace on earth
As I head into my Thanksgiving holiday break, the area in which I live is full of violence and strife. I live just 20 minutes away from Ferguson, Missouri and it is an area that I have gone to shop on many, many occasions. It pains me in ways that I cannot even express to see areas that I have been to burning to the ground. It is one thing to see something far away from where you live happening and it is a totally different, eery feeling to see a place where you know exactly where it being destroyed. I am sure that I am not alone in this feeling. I can totally understand anger and confusion and the desire to do something---but I will never understand how violence is the answer. That is why tonight I am praying for peace across my country. And in trying to obtain peace I am going to start talking more to people who are of a different race or religion than me. I am going to look past our differences and start looking at our similarities. Maybe get out of my comfort bubble a bit.
I am going to take a mini break for the Thanksgiving holiday to spend the time with my boyfriend and his step-father. I will not be updating this blog for the next few days. I want to say how thankful I truly am for all of the Beatle fans from all around the world who visit this blog. I appreciate your support so much. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that this blog would have over 2 million hits! You know---this was just supposed to be a little project I was doing for myself a few Beatle friends. Well it still is---just my few Beatle friends has gotten bigger over the years. May God bless each and everyone of you!
Peace and Love
