I'm taking a short blog break. I'm still so very raw from this emotionally that I'm trying to stay away from most of it. I have to closely monitor what I watch in the way of coverage because it just gets to me.
I'm planning on spending some time at some shelters this weekend - both those housing humans and pets. I feel I need to help folks find each other. I'm going to try to get information from folks at shelters and try to located their other loved ones. At the animal shelter on campus I just want to help take care of all those pets that are missing their people. I cannot imagine having to leave my pets behind as they are such a part of my life. I just know I'd be one of those folks refusing to leave because I couldn't take them with me. Which reminds me - we have to change that mindset in this country. Pets are family, too. In times of tragedy like this, folks who have their pets with them probably do better.
Anyway, don't be surprised if you don't hear from me for another few days. I'm just taking some healing time. I'm still trying to keep up with all the blogs I read daily so y'all keep writing. :-)
