I don’t pretend to have any answers a lot of the time, unless you’re one of my sons. That’s my premise. That aside, I didn’t write any book reviews yesterday as I had planned, because I was processing a Left to Write feature. In case you don’t know, Left to Write is a series I began years ago as an outlet for deeper discussions than whether or not the latest album release was any good or which artist signed on for a worldwide tour. I used to do these once a month and I’m trying to get back into that habit, but we start with one foot and follow with the other as time allows.

This one’s about asking the question of “Why?” as a response to tragedy or anything we disagree with. Obviously, it is something of a response to the recent school shooting, which has weighed heavily on our hearts. I’ve got two boys in elementary school and a wife teaching Kindergarten, so it hits home. Of course, there are questions. And some of my thoughts are captured in this issue of Left to Write. (I plan to have a Music of the Day ready for later today and maybe those book reviews as well.)

peace… love… bdg…
