A New Good Normal, Or Questions After Cleveland

new good normal_edited-2Today I did a piece on the horrid events in Cleveland, and the happy outcome. I couldn’t not write about it, but it was a strange subject to take on. Let me know what you think, it is here on my ForbesWoman column.  It seems to me this is a wake-up call for all of us. Above is the cartoon that goes with the article. I cheer Amanda Berry and her courage, all of the women and the young child, as well as Charles Ramsey who went against the normal  behavior of “not getting involved.”

    Well done, Liza. You were brave to take on this topic. The whole thing is so horrific. Thank goodness these women and the child are free now, but what a tragedy to have happened! I couldn’t sleep last night thinking about it. Ironically, I had a knee jerk reaction when I learned the details of their captivity, fearing for my own daughter, wanting not to let her out of our house in order to protect her from harm. But I can’t keep her captive. She and I have to face every day assuming the best, not the worst….I, too, want a new, good normal. I have to make it happen….I hope the women and Cleveland can now find a way to make a new, normal, better lives for themselves, the child, and their families. Sigh.
