Days 207-208–Jen

I didn’t have the heart yesterday to post, though a tragedy like the one in the state where I live certainly puts what I am grateful for in sharp relief.  While I don’t think there’s anything that makes our era particularly more violent than others–it’s violent in different ways than others–I still find it hard to believe these things happen whenever they happen.

Honestly, I felt grateful to be child-free.  I felt grateful for my niece and nephews.  For the fact that despite horrors like this, I don’t feel more anxious about where I go and what I do, though if I had a kid, I don’t know that I could hold as well to that sense of security.  My biggest personal worry is getting my grading in on time right now, and I’m thrilled that that’s my main concern.
