Oh Dear Lord about Mr Penny, he’s in our prayers. Any idea how it happened yet?
Glad to hear about the trees. Spring Break this weekend I’ll debrief Clint Jr...
Yes, apparently he tried to commit suicide.
Why? No one knows.
Were there any signs (and why didn’t we see them)? I didn’t interact with him, but he was a school crossing guard and many, many people interacted with him and no one saw this coming. My daughter had spoken with him just a few days earlier. She sometimes rides her bike to campus and she transverses the corner where he is a guard. He commented about not seeing her much but now it was warmer he was glad to see her again. HE REMEMBERED PERSONAL STUFF ABOUT EACH PERSON. My daughter isn’t all that different from others who cross at that intersection. He just is a very personable man.
As many others react and respond to this, I find myself asking, how many others among us put on a mask and keep separate the silent despair in which we’re living? I pray the Holy Spirit will make me sensitive to the real needs of others.
