Yesterday started as any other day---
I have CBC radio blaring forth in every room as I get the house tidied --
Around 10am I heard about a shooting in Ottawa----
I stood there watching the commotion on a TV---
It was shocking!----This is Canada---Canadians are a very peaceful, passive, quiet, caring people!--Why is this happening here-in Canada?
I stood there in shock-
Anger has taken over this morning. Why have these young people's lives been so disturbed, that they choose to hurt others? It makes me want to cry----There are others out there like him-----extremists---copycats-
So, on the home front here....Day #3 has begun-----1278 calories yesterday --down another .5 of a pound-(recycled)-my brother refuses to call his stroke a life threatening thing--(dunno if he will change his eating habits)--Fat Cat really is looking better (filling out)-Himself has a Birthday on Saturday--He will be 86 and still working----must be a record somewhere---We have no snow ---(Praise the Lord!)---and --I shall try very hard to journal---exercise and be happy---
To-day I shall mourn for the poor soldier who had a young child--a little boy---who loved his dog-who was just a young man, doing his job!
