And to be honest, I don't really care which political figure says what about it. Who condones, who condemns, who ignores is not my problem. We are not a country of politicians. We are a country of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and children. We need to speak up. We need to not let hate, fear, and anger control the media and the tone of our world.
We are all working to have a world without limits. A world where no one feels less than or left out for their sex, and let's not even get into the Transgender and where they fit into this argument. I wish a woman could just come out in a movie.... and it would just be a movie.
I have never in my life seen a person who is so incapable of taking responsibility. I have never seen anyone that is so quick to cast blame at anyone or anything but themself. I have never seen anyone who just lies for the sake of making themself feel better. I have never seen anyone who needs to toot their own horn and pat their own back at the expense of other. I have never seen anyone so clueless about the way the world works... and I could never have imagined such a person in office.
Most people want to help the hungry and the destitute. Most people would give to the poor or take in the refugee once they got to know the person. The problem is with labels there are no individuals. There are only Muslims, Mexicans, Illegals, Republicans, Democrats, men, women ... anyone different than me.
In the last year women have come out of the woodwork with marches and petitions and new groups. There is a whole new women's movement which is blaming men for not treating women well and not respecting women as people... then they go onto social media and berate other women. Maybe we should look in the mirror before we start blaming other groups for our being held back.
My son and I went to Mass the other day for our ashes... much to his protest, and the Priest of the day brought up an interesting take on the whole "Giving up something for Lent" thing. Now I know that not all of you are Catholic, but I feel like it's a good message… Continue reading Giving (up) for Lent
After watching the movie "Into the Woods" I downloaded the soundtrack from Amazon. I was really in love with the music. But as I was driving around in my truck listening to the words I was really taken-a-back by them. There is one scene in which the witch sings to the villagers, "you're so nice,… Continue reading You’re not good, you’re not bad, you’re just nice!
I went to see Star Wars: Rogue One the other night and I can't stop thinking about the plot of the whole series. The whole good vs evil, right from wrong and where the line is drawn. There were plenty of people who were living in the Empire that were just living their lives as… Continue reading DON’T GIVE IN TO THE DARK SIDE
I was watching some horrible videos on Aleppo the other day and my boyfriend asked me why I bother to watch such horrible things. They are so depressing, why do I put myself through that? I feel like that is most people's view of Aleppo and other horrible things that are happening around the world.… Continue reading Love begets love
Has anyone else noticed how negative the world has become? Social media is no longer a place to connect and share ideas and stories and make friends. It has become a battle ground for every issue one can think of. It has become a place where everyone is the perfect parent, spouse, worker ... and… Continue reading Hate begets hate!
