Following recent mass murders, conservative politicians have rushed to the scene to show sympathy. And there has also been a great deal of criticism of politicians who arrive and offer only thoughts and prayers for the survivors of the killings. As a person of faith, I certainly believe that there is a great deal to be said for offering prayers of comfort. The problem arises, though, when prayers and good thoughts are the only thing offered by politicians.

Conversations with two people today led me to a long bout of thinking about people and personalities. What makes us tick? What catches our eye? What claims our attention, draws our finances, and causes us to make decisions - both good and bad?

Sienna the chocolate lab

Sienna is a young adult female chocolate lab and weighs about 45 pounds. Sienna has been at the shelter since late October and is such a sweet dog that we cannot believe no one has adopted her. She has a wonderful personality, loves the water and enjoys play-time. She is curious and gets along with other dogs. She is tired of the cold concrete floor and yearns for a soft bed. Sienna would be the perfect dog for a hike or camping, or long walks on the beach. If you are looking for love and a loyal companion, Sienna is waiting for you!

As my favorite day of the year approaches, I am aware of how easily we could over look Thanksgiving this year. What do we have to be thankful for today?  Many express their discontent and dissatisfaction with everything from our history to their hysteria. Many, around the world, want to blow up everything and to kill people they do not know in order to protest their dissatisfaction with the way the world is going. Many want to express love for their “God” by hurting, killing or attacking those who have done nothing worse then being different.

Annie's Mailbox

 Dear Annie:

I am inclined to ask for an outside opinion after spending time with my grandkids at their home last night and witnessing a lot of violent behavior with which they got away. It was an emotional roller coaster. I saw the eldest sibling behaving roughly with his younger siblings. The parents threatened to take away a favorite toy as punishment but then never followed through, nor did they use timeout, which I still think is smart for calming down.
