April Fool's Day

Today is the anniversary of my being baptized, an event that now seems more foolish than anything else.  Especially in light of the fact that a few years later I would found out that I had already been baptized as an infant.  So if not foolish, at least ridiculously redundant.

Today is also the one year anniversary of the death of a friend's husband. She's moved on.  Life goes on.  It's all very strange.  But that death began a series of deaths for last year that still has me exhausted.

And, in keeping with my countdown to my birthday, a possibly innocent man was executed on my birthday.  In 2006 my convictions regarding the death penalty were put to the test and I came through it with my personal convictions still solidly in place.  I do not believe in the death penalty under any circumstances.  Hopefully, I won't have all of my personal convictions tested in such a manner.
