The shootings in Connecticut reminded me of this situation I had on Highway 1 in California. A deer had found itself on hard pavement, unfamiliar terrain - on one side was a rocky uphill slope, too hard to climb, on the other, a cliffside down to the ocean with rocks below. Cars approached from both directions. Witnessing this scenario made me sorry to have been privy to such desperation, my stomach flipped.
We can only hope that the good we see around us will prevail. Will prevail against the worst we encounter, despite the fragility of the situation. Good must triumph…right?
