three things i know to be true

1. I feel powerless and out of control when I know something to be true and I am told it is not possible--especially when the one saying it's not possible has sway over my outcome.

2. Something ate the heads off one clump of newly opened daffodils in the yard.

3. I care...and those things I care about, I take care of--people, too. And sometimes I hurt when I feel I can't do enough...can't protect...can't make it right.

What are three things you know to be true?

Right here. Right now.

1. That my love for my family knows no bounds.
2. That despite my belief in the power of peace and love, very likely I could kill, if need be, to protect my children and grandchildren from an attacker.
3. That I cannot begin to comprehend the heart of a woman who said to me, about her extremely intelligent, deeply gifted son: "I haven't felt proud of him since he was in fifth grade. Why didn't he become president of the United States, or at least a doctor like his best friend?"
