I am so tired.

Pray for Nice. Pray for Istanbul. Pray for Baghdad. Pray for Brussels. Pray for Orlando. Pray for Paris. Pray for Syria. Pray for Pakistan. Pray for humanity. Pray for peace.
  1. So tired. Of violence in the world.
  2. Of innocent people losing their lives for no reason.
  3. Of more innocent people being killed by vigilantes in retaliation for crimes they haven't committed.
  4. Of the lack of compassion and understanding of our fellow man.
  5. Of terrorists.
    Fucking lowlife assholes.
  6. Of corrupt politicians.
  7. Of dirty cops.
  8. Of black kids losing their lives for no good reason.
  9. Of the LGBTQ community being treated as subhuman.
  10. Of Muslims being targeted by Daesh/ISIS but then being seen as the problem.
    See: recent attacks in Iraq and Turkey.
  11. Of fearing for my parents lives when they go to pray at their mosque in Texas because I don't know if a crazy person will attack them or set their place of worship on fire.
  12. Of military servicemembers dying.
  13. Of racism. Sexism. Bigotry of all kinds.
  14. Of fearing for anyone and everyone just living their life who may become a target for no good reason at all.
  15. I am just so tired.
  16. I am trying to remember this:
  17. "When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'" —Fred Rogers
