I’ve been immersed in hate today. I’ve been watching updates from this week’s bombing attacks in Brussels that killed 31 people and injured 270. I’ve listened to the sounds of children crying for their mamas in the dark aftermath. Reading the most hateful comments about a state I love—North Carolina. Reading reports of deadly […]
