Veteran's Day

From Instagram: Thank you to all of our veterans. We appreciate your service! 

What a week for America, huh? Like most of the country world, we watched the election results roll in on Tuesday with a mixture of shock and disbelief. Even my husband, who is generally not transfixed by all things political, stayed up until 1 a.m. waiting for a winner to be announced.

The days since the election have been disheartening as hate seems to have won on both sides. But I’ve also been reminded that the loudest, most violent and hateful people get the airtime, and I’ve seen a lot of really great conversations online about what the future holds and how we can seek unity and peace. I’ve said it before, and I’ll continue to say it: the only way we move forward is with kindness and respect.

What I’m readingA Portrait of Emily Price by Katherine Reay and How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare by Ken Ludwig (I’m working through this one one play at a time, and our family just finished up a study of A Midsummer’s Night Dream, so The Twelfth Night is next!)
