As if Baby Boomers need a reminder for this spiritual BFO – blinding flash of the obvious:

Love is all that matters.

The best way to find what’s most important is to look at it’s opposite, the most detrimental (hate).

Hoping to share what I’ve gleaned from not watching the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy unfold on TV.
