United States Riots

I find it interesting and someone distressing how disconnected my sons are from the current riots in the United States. I spoke to the one who lives 15 minutes from downtown Madison, Wisconsin where a democrat State Senator was badly beaten and two statues were toppled last night. His response was that they were far enough away to not be concerned.

Demonstrations at the state capital were commonplace for the eight years that Scott Walker was Governor (he was defeated in the last election - Wisconsin is truly a swing state.) But they were always peaceful and clearly focused on some legislative objective. Last night's activity had neither attribute.

Not much I can do but in the meantime but worry. So I shall.

Fair winds and following seas 😀
