Last year, I started to write about how we survive emotionally and spiritually in an age of more disaster than we care to remember. The plight of the homeless in our own country, estimated at 553,742 on a given night; the specter of immigrant children in cages -- 69,550 migrant children held in U.S. government custody last year; the numbers of Americans overdosing on opioids, more than 67,300 dead from drug-involved overdoses in 2018, was all front page news and getting relentless. As the storm clouds gathered in my head, I decided it was all too much.
