Five Points – 13

Guns – 

I’ve struggled in writing this passage.  I don’t understand how any sensible person can defend our current status of affairs with regard to guns in the United States.

I just don’t understand.

It doesn’t matter that people shoot themselves or police or EMS or innocent bystanders or the law makers or even our baby children…kind, smart, happy children while they are at school.

It is sickening and demoralizing and I do not understand.

Protein – 

I love my protein shake, every day, as soon as I am on my feet. The habit started in my effort to mitigate fat and to build muscle, but I’ve learned it is also good for the brain.
