Thank you for this Kris. I needed this this morning like,

My Granny had a similar saying in, “it will all come out in the wash.” She lived through the Great Depression, so my Mom and I find our selves constantly going back to that,

“that hair caress our grandma used to do, the cool hand running over the side of the head. “There, there, little one.”

It is just like a stream of hate and harsh reality that we must keep reinforcing a dam against with kindness, optimism and love. Like you say:

It sounds like nonsense, if we think about it, but we don’t care, because it makes us feel better. But the best part is, it’s not even nonsense.
