There appears to be a lot going on in the world at the moment.
I suspect that what we think is happening depends on who we are, where we are, and what we use as our information sources.
I believe we can only come to a common understanding by listening to each other. There is no right or wrong answer since none of us has all the details. There is only a multiplicity of views which, when woven together, will create our common whole.
So, this week, instead of telling you what I think is going on, I invite you to share what you think is going on in the comments below.
