I watch the national news to observe events unfold in other places feeling safely cocooned living in our small isolated town, Kuna, Idaho. However, the violence in the news is beginning to impact my life, the life of my children, and my community.
Life events bring out the best in people and sometimes during busy, stressful times or simply in the course of an average day, people’s efforts, the everyday actions of getting through a day, remain unnoticed. Why? Because we are trying to survive.
My parents found humor in every situation — even events most people considered not so funny.
