  •  You know I feel that way too from time to (6+ / 0-)

    time, especially after an episode like Sandy Hook. Too much ugliness in this world. I'm your age and we've seen it all--assassinations in the sixties, needless war after needless war, and now the slaughter of children in their classrooms, at Christmas. It gets to be too damn much to absorb. I suggest some time away from the news as a temporary remedy. Get involved in a hobby or volunteer. I read a lot of old classics for escape from the chaos of the modern world. We have to hang on and try to do good (yeah, be a do-gooder) and love our peeps and ourselves.

      It's restorative and you get fresh vegetables.

      I also recommend taking action, but being very selection, and focusing on a small piece of where you can make a difference. Like creating an urban farm that raises food to feed hungry people. Or working for a local candidate you know and like. Or starting a blog to mock right wingers. I have done all of these things.
