Distracted and considering the long term influence of this decision, how it can feel so close to home.

Feeling anger at reports of barbaric, misogynistic acts by dark forces purporting to represent a belief system of Peace. Canada is sending our people into a hornet’s nest with factions fighting within factions. Keep our people off the ground in this mission to fight the good fight, to support a “just battle”.

My heart, my thoughts, my nonbeliever prayers go out to the ordinary citizens, the women and children caught in the middle.
