just how depressed / despondent / concerned to be over all that's going on these days.
Prayerful is how I'll approach it for now.
Still, one thing is just incredible to me: we in Michigan have now enshrined in our constitution the concept that it's OK to experiment on some humans, as long as we think - with or without any evidence, of course - that there might be some benefit for some other humans sometime down the line somehow. It's hard to see that as anything but a step into darkness and evil.
At the same time, California - land of fruits and nuts, source of all progressive thinking in the US, etc. - has actually put the traditional definition of marriage as a man and a woman into their constitution.
Confusion reigns here. More to come later.
