I kind of believe in being high minded and idealistic. We as a nation need to have something to unify us no matter our race, religion, orientation or gender. If we are to be a great nation we need to love one another and respect each other no matter our differences. Lets resolve to do our best for one another and to fulfill the promise of a new day. It is time to be better to bring our hearts and minds together to achieve great things. Our promise should be to one another and to dream something bigger than ourselves. What that is I am not sure but perhaps it can start with a conversation, imagination and most importantly inclusion.
The ghosts of Columbine, Newtown and now Charleston would appreciate a conversation and more importantly action. No more people should perish to senseless gun violence.
The ghosts of Selma, Birmingham, Memphis are asking for a conversation on racism.
The ghosts of people who were harmed because of their orientation and sexuality would appreciate a conversation on people with lifestyle differences.
Many ghosts are calling for conversations are we going to listen.
I do post about things going on in the world. So for my newest followers I will share current events happening that have personal, local and global impact. Forever I have been a news junkie and its a part of chronicling the the serious things in life. Information that is important and breaking is important.
We live in a wild west mentality these days where people value weapons over life. We value the right to bear arms over the right for affordable health care. There is something wrong with this situation. Everyone should have the right to live free of fear and guns don’t always secure that freedom.
