A Different Spin on Things

We've been innundated with news reports about school shootings lately. We can't get away from them, can we?

And what can we do? Hold our children a little tighter? Be a little more afraid? Judge a little more severely when we hear the next story?

Or do something productive.

Try to put good back into the universe.

Try to push the pendulum back towards the positive.

If you've been reading this blog for any time at all, you know how I feel.

"The opposite of war isn't peace. It's creation."

I choose to not be afraid. I choose to create.

And so did these women with this beautiful idea.

They have enough knitters at this point, but I believe they're looking for more spinners.

If you can, please do. There's enough destruction, enough hatred, enough fear.

You can do the opposite of all that. You can defeat it. You can create.

i wish i could, but my spinning wheel is at my house, and i don't get over there much rightnow (and my husband is a smoker, so i can't bring my wheel over here)

it's a beautiful thought, though

A quote from RENT? I LOVE it! Now if only I could convince my parents to buy me a spinning wheel for my birthday. Since that won't happen, I'll just go ahead and send my thoughts and prayers to the project!
