    My daughter asked me why there was so much evil in the world. I told her there are so many more good people & asked if she knew anyone who had ever done something really evil. She said no and I said me either, so that proves it!

      I tell my son all the time that the majority of folks in the world are good…it’s just that good people rarely make the news…

    I was struck by the beauty of the picture, then had a dose of reality when I saw the second picture taken on Berkeley St. That gray building on the corner is where I used to work. It’s the old John Hancock building. I can’t even imagine the heartbreak and chaos.
