366 days of gratitude

July 14, 2016

A trip to Robben Island last month was a sobering experience that started when we noticed a sign at the ferry terminal asking people to hand in their guns before they boarded the boat.

Police have shot two people in New Zealand this week. Both shootings made the news, as they should because shooting people, by police or others, is a mercifully rare occurrence here.

Today I’m grateful to live in a country where police and public aren’t routinely armed.

This time last week we visited Robben Island.

It was sobering and made me very grateful for freedom and equality.
