It's been a tough weekend on the soul, hearing about the details that happened in Paris and Beirut. Innocent people in everyday circumstances... eating at restaurants, enjoying a concert, watching a sporting event... it's hard to process or understand the hate. How do you respond without fear or more hatred, but in a way that is strong and prevents future attacks? Maybe it is to resume everyday life, but in a different, more cautious way... not really sure. So this weekend was spent with close friends and family over good meals, coffee, cookies, and zoo lights.
