This week was hard. Really hard. I had not intended to watch the hearings but it was on. Everywhere. My heart breaks for all those women I know who now have come forward with their stories. The courage that I have witnessed this week gives me hope for the future.
I pray for our culture. I pray for men and women to work together to end sexual violence and all the norms within our culture that support it. I know many good people working in this area, and I see so many who are raising strong and compassionate sons and daughters.
My heart breaks for our deeply divided nation. My heart breaks. It breaks for this nation that I love. Where oh where do we go from here?
And yet, when I take a deep breath, I do trust that a way will come. It will take the people of good heart and faith to restore us as a nation. I trust God will guide us.
I pray for courage for each of us.
