Perhaps a good lesson can be learned here. Instead of hoping a boy is not in a balloon we can hope a soldier is not in war, a child is not in poverty, an abused spouse is not in danger, a daughter is not in mental illness, a friend is not in disease.
Let’s pay attention and hope for those other ‘nots’ instead of the knots of a buffoon.
