Dealing with all the hate and anger out there…

Innocent enough Facebook post I made yesterday.  I was in a mood that I missed the kinder days of Facebook.   After seeing a deluge of negative posts about 45 that were only adding to the fear and anxiety of the world.   It turned into a hateful post.  One that I don’t quiet know what to do with.   At …
