True. Me too. I've retreated about as far as I can from the chaos, politics, war-mongering, climate disasters, lack of water, lack of food supply, pollution... I can't go on. Too depressing. But I hear you, Margie, loud and clear. I couldn't afford to live anywhere in the US as a pensioner, and that's why I'm here now... loving the simple life, the jungles, the wonderful variety of flora and fauna... living in gratitude that I still have my health, if not my possessions, and starting over. Big hugs, Margie. You're my hero!
