I went out in public today. For the first time since my last booster.

I needed to get glasses while I still have eyeglass insurance. Turning 65 in May. So the first thing I see was a huge yard sign for Dan Kelly for WI supreme court. Got to eye appointment, and while there 2 people covered in 2nd amendment hoodies with the cross rifle tag came in.

I then went to look at a senior apartment as the complex we have lived in for 6 years raises our rent by $300.00 per month. They have raised it 50.00 per month each year for the past 6 years. We have never missed a payment and are really good tenants. I guess that is not enough.

I had my husband bring me home, sore tired and discouraged. And to the news of another school shooting.

I have given up watching the news, pretty much keeping up to date with links on DU. And all I could think was people say don't shoot the messenger.

Well, I think the messenger has to do better at how they are approaching shootings, in particular school shootings.

Because the messengers are not getting shot, the children are.
