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.
I had an interesting conversation with a Trump supporter today. She said that she wasn't worried about all the horrible things that he says because she doesn't think that they're going to happen. Really? So, you're glad a person who wants to take food and healthcare away from children, women, and elderly is in office because you're pretty sure the Democrats won't let it happen?
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 think that Planned Parenthood is an abortion clinic and that's all they do there. When there is discussions about birth control people start a tirade about how they don't want to pay for other people to use their tax dollars to abort babies as a form of birth control. There is a post going about of people calling PP and asking them about pre-natal care, a service that is not provided at most locations, and therefore assumed that there is no other services that women need.
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.
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
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!
So the Pope thinks Americans are obsessed with shit... not in the literal sense, but he uses it as a metaphor. He said that America's preoccupation with all the useless, garbage, and down right fake news is the same as people with a fetish for poop. I can't say that I disagree. The Kardashians are… Continue reading Pope says we’re turning to shit!
