Sadly, week one 2015 ended poorly. Again, our world has been rocked by senseless, brutal, incomprehensible... again, senseless violence. Thoughts are with the families and colleagues of French journos whose lives were cut down in their prime. Sending soothing thoughts to all those who have vowed to persevere, and show strength through the power of the pen and pencil. Things like what happened in Paris, should not be the new normal. But, with worldwide alerts for journalist, that's exactly what seems to be suggested. I want our old normal. I've wanted old normal again since 9/11/2001. Such is life, I suppose. The key is to persevere, and the people of France have gathered in thousands, pen, pencil & banners raised in remembrance of the fallen... this is a good thing. I am in full support of their movement. Again, my thoughts today have been with the people of France.
There were things that kept me from sitting in front of news coverage, thank goodness. Plans for the day did not go as expected, but everyone sleeps now, with a new day ahead to accomplish tasks and plans to assure for a productive day.
Until tomorrow, I again, leave you with today's This Is Fifty With Lil vlog:
