Day 3563: A good cry

These days, it seems like it’s always a good time for a good cry.

When there’s yet another mass shooting of innocents in the USA by a young man with a weapon of destruction, I don’t know if a good cry does any good.

Yesterday, before I asked that question about a good cry on Twitter, I attended my neighborhood July 4th parade in the USA, unaware that a similar event near Chicago was about to be transformed into a scene of cries and carnage.

That’s Francis and Etta, two wonderful children who watched the whole July 4th parade with me. I’m having a good cry right now thinking about all the wonderful children who’ve been traumatized over the years by gun violence.

While I’m having a good cry, I’ll share the rest of the images I captured yesterday with my good readers.

I’m not a workaholic, but I’m glad I can work today as a therapist and witness other people’s good cries.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “a good cry.”


Thanks to all who helped me create a good cry post, including YOU.

    Crying is like praying. Night feel useful to those who cry or pray, but doesn’t do a damn thing about the problem.

  2. It’s been a long time since I had a good cry but I do think it helped me process what I was going through at the time.

    Although are good cry can be cathartic, I’ve been silently addressing some good swears to people who think “freedom” is the liberty to shoot or stab. I’ve also been silently addressing a good swear to people with an antiquated mentality regarding women’s rights.. I don’t know if a good cry or getting angry will accomplish anything- I suppose the only thing that may change the situation is to vote…. hopefully, that right won’t be taken away from us…

  4. We all need to vote!!

  5. It’s more than a crying shame that evil, twisted people have turned our cherished events into killing fields, Ann.

  6. Your parade looks like it was so appealing. And as for a good cry, sometimes lately I fear that if I start crying I might not stop. I haven’t stopped grieving Uvalde and here we are with Highland Park. The stories of the victims has ripped me open. It is too much. I have no answers, but I do have a lot of tears. I like the card in your one photo, “It’s okay to say we are not okay.” Yep!!

  7. it makes me cry that people purposely hurt other people, as we all are just trying to live our lives
