“Afraid” may not be the exact word for what I am feeling, but I know it is in there somewhere. Afraid of where my life is going. Not just my life, but our lives.
Security has been breached, violated. Nothing feels safe anymore. I know, in the end, the things of this earth don’t matter. But, this earth is where I am now and where I am not feeling safe, where I’ve been violated. Where our daughter has been violated. Where our friend has been attacked, at gunpoint, while conducting his business, not once, but twice in less than a year. Where I have been attacked by dogs and had my lungs filled with the constant cigarette smoke of people that care more about their wants than the safety of those around them, including their own children.
Ok, well, the timer went off in the middle of that thought bubble. There you have it.
