My interrogator was ruthless casting doubt on answers lies I had told myself I denied denied what I saw right in front of me The rituals repeated my history looking me square in the face Wringing the facts from me one at a time Finally spent and weak from validity I stood tall and erect to face tomorrow leaving the past behind me Copyright (C) 2020 Penny Wilson
Just under the surface lies hidden Hatred Hatred fogs the mind Hands that can build that can breath life into each of us turn to fists Voices cry out against the hate Two strides forward today we pray only one stride back We stumble seeking answers seeking unity Today and tomorrow Forward Copyright 2020 Penny Wilson Image by John Hain from Pixabay

This is not a new post. But felt it was appropriate, considering the hardship that my BFF is going through right now. Please read and you’ll understand why this woman is so precious to me.

Since I am still going to work every day, my family worries about me during this uncertain time. I do my best to reassure them that we are very careful and being as safe as we can be. It’s just a skeleton crew at work right now. I get texts and phone calls now much more often than I have in the past. I miss my family and my friends. I’m sure you do too.

Please be sure to take that minute to send a text or make that phone call. It might just mean the world to the person on the other end.
Thank you for joining me on this journey. ❤ Penny
