Few Words Wednesday: Choosing Sides

This summer's annual vacation to the Midwest has included a couple of twists and turns we hadn't expected. As a result, I am redirecting some of the time I would have spent writing and keeping my Wednesday posts a little shorter. 

Though I miss spending an hour or two every afternoon and/or evening connecting the thoughts in my head with my fingers on the keyboard, I have enjoyed looking for meaningful, relevant quotes that quickly and simply convey how I feel about our world and my - and my family's - journey through it.

I look forward to the day when I wake up not to stories about oppression and violence, but to stories about human beings helping and supporting other human beings. We aren't there yet though, so how can we - individually, as communities, and as a society - step outside the neutrality comfort zone? How can we stand up for and alongside the mouse?
