A prayer to get through this day and this moment:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference

2. Thanks for posting.

Today I REALLY need "the courage to change the things I can."

Before the end of the business day I WILL phone and talk to, or leave messages for, Ben Lujan's staff, Martin Heinrich's staff, and Tom Udall's staff.

And I WILL send a $25 donation to the ACLU THIS afternoon.

I cannot change the way things are now, today.

The things that make me tremble with rage and horror, the things that make me weep with sorrow.

But I can reject despair.

I can change myself, just a little.

I can be the kind of person who says politely but firmly to the people I should hold to account for my vote, "You must take action."

I can be the kind of person who prioritizes resource to help others with more knowledge and skills fight this fight.

More courage, please.

I have always been a coward. But I am capable of change.

hopefully,
Bright

3. You are NOT a coward. The fact that you are here and still fighting says a whole lot about you.

This addiction fight is horrific. Just staying in the fight is incredible. For you and for me too. All of us who are fighting the fight to stay clean. I will add 3 more ideas: If it were easy, it would be easy and everyone would win. ..also........................................................................................
.........This is a most difficult fight, and it is... A One Day At A Time Fight.

5. Words of wisdom from a fellow fighter I heard...

Focus on who you want to be, not who you were.

And another one I heard over the weekend: Live a life you don't need a vacation from!
