I Thought I Could Change

It occurs to me this morning, as I read the news and contemplate my life, that while much has changed, many major flaws remain. I refer not just to myself but to the state of the world in general.

Homophobia is rampant. Women's Rights are in the toilet. We're still fighting wars and world hunger.

It brings home the idea that larger change can only come from the individual. If I continue to do the same stupid thing over and over again, why would governments be any different?

It's depressing.

Things change, but seeming never fast enough. It's best to only take a pulse every 10 years if you want to see something measurable. Sad but true.

GuyWhoWrites, now there's a thought. Though, being a nurse, it's difficult to think like that. If I take a pulse once every 10 years, the patient could be long dead ;^)

LOL Nelle! Today seems like a good day for a blue margarita.
