I can be a jerk sometimes.
Tonight we dined out at Mount Vernon Restaurant, a fixture in the Chattanooga food scene for 60 years. I had the classic Mount Vernon cutlet which resembles chicken parmesan but made with pork. I paired it with some macaroni and cheese. For desert I enjoyed some amaretto pie which is delicious. It’s nice to take a culinary trip back in time. The prices were from the 1970’s which were good too.
I believe no one deserves to get bullied. In our world that is becoming more diverse there are some who face bullying just for being who they are. LGBTQ kids are just trying to get through this life just like the rest of us and they shouldn’t have to face harm because of who they are. Matthew Shepard was one of those people who lost his life just because people didn’t like it because of his sexual orientation.
I am reminded that we are to love one another, period. Every person is valued and cherished by their higher power. To me God loves all the children of the world. I stand with you my LGBTQ brothers and sisters. Grace and peace to you in this world we live in.
In life we need boundaries. Buffer zones between people and situations that could do harm. Personal relationships need boundaries too for emotional and physical safety. Some relationships can become inappropriately intimate especially when there are attachments in the mix.
Bloggers need boundaries too. Connections are made daily and there must be respect of the personal situations of one another. I think we can be too open online and that can become a problem in an era when people aren’t so kind. As friendships are made through social media we have to be careful about how friendly we can be.
Form your own best practices but have fun. Don’t let yourself get into a jam online.
