New Year’s Prayer for 2022

When the day comes
where soldiers do yoga
instead of killing
we may at last heave a sigh
of relief: peace on earth.

      Happy New Year, Max. I went to bed early last night but the guns at midnight that went on for a long time kept me awake. A couple of doors down the neighbors sold a house-sized piece of property. The first thing the new owners did was bulldoze everything off of it. The next thing they did was start using it for shooting off their guns. Last night was a real party for them.

        Oh geez…I thought you meant fireworks when I was reading your reply… what the heck? Is there houses near where they are shooting? Hope this isn’t a recurring event.

          Ever since they cleared the land (no sign of any prep for building anything other than that) the shooting has been regular. Bullets can travel a long way through the woods, so I would say if they are shooting away from the road with nothing to stop those bullets (It’s a cleared flat area) that those who live down the road behind there are at risk 😦

            I know the other neighbors must be pissed. I wonder if anyone has called and complained? The noise alone would get old…not to mention the risk of bullets flying.
