Before You Know Kindness

Day 145…

This month’s book club selection.   A study in human response to tragedy…three days after the shooting in Arizona.  And that point wasn’t missed by the group.  One member, in commenting about the book’s tragedy, notes there was no simple cause and effect answer. 

I like that Chris Bohjalian begins his book with a portion of Naomi Shihab Nye’s poem “Kindness”.  Beautiful.  The redemption after the chaos.
