“Just forget about it.”
That seems to be the suggestion today.
“Stay off the news!”
“Watch a comedy!”
“Pretend all is right with the world!”
There have been a lot of issues swirling around us that I’ve been trying to pretend aren’t happening right now.
Calls for blood and death on police.
Politicians who want us to believe “it was a peaceful protest” while we watch buildings burn.
“Forget about it.”
“Read a book.”
“Hug the kids.”
“Go on a walk.”
“Pet the kitten.”
“Nothing to see here.”
If only my brain would stop screaming me out of the peace I’m pretending I have.
