Carly Ritz wrote this amazing post today and as has already been noted there are many truths in this post:
After a wonderful evening of gnt’s, good convo and great people at the 27 dinner, I returned home in the early
hours of wednesday morning to discover that my grandmother and uncle had been held up at gun point outside
In this moment of anger and confusion I turn to words…
I am so angry and oscillating between the need to scream and the urge to cry. I suppose the tension between the needs has created the stoic balance in which I now sit.
But I don’t want to dwell on how incensed I am or rant about the state of crime in this country…
I’d rather share a few reasons why I am so grateful today
I am grateful today because I still have my grandmother who is without doubt one of the most significant women in my life
I am grateful today because I still have my uncle
I am grateful today because my two precious sisters were not at home at the time of the event
I am grateful today for our kind neighbours who helped my family
I am grateful today for beautiful and unconditional friends
I am grateful today for a new perspective. Suddenly yesterday’s worries and stresses really don’t seem all that devastating anymore.
And I am grateful for a space to share my thoughts with an audience who is determined to see the good and the positive in our country and in all of us no matter how dark it seems.
Thank you Carls, you are awesome!
