This Week – Listening

Fave Pic FOKI7319 On Tuesday, Gage and I visited one of the Cleveland Metroparks that was new to us.  It was much needed to calm the chaos.

Highlights of the Week  We went to the Cruise the Zoo last weekend and had a good time.  It was nice to have someplace safe to go as a family.  The animals were sometimes so far away that you only saw glimpses but driving at 2 mph through the zoo with other family with kids hanging out of windows or popping out of sunroofs was a great thing to see.

Unfortunately, Cleveland, like many other cities, got wrecked last weekend.  It was devastating to see.  I watched the peaceful protest for a bit online and thought everything looked great. Everyone was respectful and there was no need for police presence.  I checked back later in the day to find that after that group had started the walk around downtown, others showed up and started the violence and destruction of property.  Cleveland was on curfew until Wednesday morning.  Jason went into his downtown office for the first time since March on Wednesday and called the place a ghost town.  Thankfully, there have been many smaller protests all over the suburbs here this week and they’ve all been peaceful.   I’m listening and reading and trying to come up with some personal goals to make myself more of an active ally.
