I find myself watching over and over again this news footage where an investigative reporter in San Diego gets beat up by a couple allegedly bullying and assaulting others in the community. It is disturbing to see two people so emotionally out of control. The reporter told Larry King that while the man was attacking him, the woman said she’d get the gun; he felt his life was spared because she couldn’t find it.

Somehow it seems ironic that this morning I was proud of my own emotional maturity in a few trying situations.

Calm is good.
