More shootings

My heart hurts – again, or maybe really still. These have gotten so common that I fear we (as a nation) will just get used to them. Please DO NOT look at this as normal. In a way, it is, in the sense that they are starting to be usual & expected. But here’s the . . . → Read More: More shootings

Think for yourself

Think for yourself; use your brain to figure things out. If you are seeing something, believe it – don’t let others tell you that what you are seeing is not happening. If you are being told to believe what someone tells you, and not what you see with your own eyes, consider the source. What . . . → Read More: Think for yourself

Happy Independence Day

I believe that good will prevail, though it may take longer than I would like. Happy Independence Day to everyone in the United States of America. We fought once to divorce ourselves from a king; may we get through this mess without another revolution.

A news break

The world can seem overwhelming right now, with so much going on. There are days when I just want to watch comedies on TV and ignore the real world.

Well, I have decided that that is an okay thing to do sometimes. While I am not an advocate of burying my head in the sand . . . → Read More: A news break

Abortion

I am so tired of hearing all these crazy things that some men – and yes, some women as well – are pushing through state legislatures, trying to control women. Because that is, indeed, what it is about – controlling women. All the anti-abortion measures being pushed through the states now are really not about . . . → Read More: Abortion

Cheating to get your kid into a good school

Just when I think that people really can’t get any more disgusting, they prove me wrong.

And some are apparently fine with cheating . . . → Read More: Cheating to get your kid into a good school

I do have to say that the snow outside my house is beautiful to . . . → Read More: Snow

RIP John McCain

John McCain died last week; he will most certainly be missed. I didn’t always agree with what he said and did, but most of the time he seemed to be doing it because he thought it was best for the country. He really seemed to have a love of this country that transcended political parties. . . . → Read More: RIP John McCain

Guns again

I am totally flabbergasted at the people who are willing to bully the kids who are marching for their lives right now. People (and I won’t name names, though you probably know who I am talking about) who are calling these kids names, claiming they are “crisis actors,” and saying they are being used by . . . → Read More: Guns again

Another school shooting

Another school shooting…my heart hurts so bad. I still cry when I see things about it on the news or on social media. And it makes me sad and angry at the same time.

I really do not want to be one of the people who becomes so hardened on one side or the other . . . → Read More: Another school shooting
