we interrupt your regular blogging for a short public service announcement

I have a lot of things I want to write about. But right now they all seem either really petty or incredibly beyond my skill to discuss. There’s been so much going on this week that I’m still having trouble comprehending it.

What I will say is this: Pay attention to the world around you. Get your news from multiple sources. Don’t rush to broad, sweeping judgements. And remember that sticking your head in the sand and ignoring the news doesn’t make it go away.

If you’re on social media, make it work for you. Follow different news channels and sites, and pay at least a moderate amount of attention to what they’re posting. Use apps like Pocket to save articles for later when you can’t get to them right away. Subscribe to services like theSkimm to get a brief snapshot of world news in your inbox. Find what works for your lifestyle, and use it.

I’m saying this as much to myself as to anyone else. If we’re going to be a Light to the world, we owe it to the world to know what’s going on.
