July 4.20: Coping

It’s Independence Day here, dear reader, and (speaking only for myself) there’s no way to know if we should mourn or celebrate. Do we laugh or do we cry? Do we curse or bless?

The news makes me shudder. However, I read something the other day that lifted me up.  The words of Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey:

“There is no reason to be a knucklehead.”

Ever timely. Succinct. Patrick Henry couldn’t have said it better.
