I stopped watching the news on Saturday. It is hard for me to stay away from it. In Chicago, I listened to CBS News Radio going back and forth to work. I haven’t found such a station here, so I use to watch the 6:30 national news with Bob. He wouldn’t eat until after the news.I was allowing myself an hour of national news. Usually CNN. At the moment, I can’t watch any of it. But I can’t completely stay away.  I cheat. I go to my iPad and get snippets of news from different sources. I get upset . I want to blame someone and I do. When I was walking Dixie Cup a few hours ago, I had the thought that I believed  was original. Maybe it isn’t, but it was a new thought for me. I want to volunteer to walk with any Black man that needs me. I don’t know how practical that is, but I am willing to walk hand in hand to show solidarity. I can say this when I sit in an almost white community, where I am safe. But this is not a hollow offer. I will walk with anyone who needs me ,here in Venice, Fl, or in Port Townsend, WA. where I will be in a few days. Besides  voting, I have no other way to show that I respect the peaceful protesters.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
