I am reblogging this very meaningful and poignant reflection about ultimate meaning as I am going through some (hopefully short-term) challenges in some of my important relationships at the moment.
I heard about a hit-and-run that happened in our area last week from a police officer friend of mine. He was just telling me about it on Saturday night, when I brought him maple syrup from our maple tree tapping outing we went to that day. Four county correctional officers were struck by an SUV while they were jogging Tuesday night. Three of them were injured, but one of them, a 25 year old mother of a 5 month old, died at the scene of the accident.
He was also telling me other horror stories of what goes wrong in this area and on the news. I often wonder if he has any positive stories about anything to talk about. I worked in a crime lab for 5 years, I know all about the horrific things that can happen between people but I don’t go talking about them.
