Teaching about the evils of racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia and other social ills is very important in these days we live in. For our society to advance you have to peel back the curtain that some would rather keep closed because that means they are complicit in making life hard for others. Without these lessons those who seek to take the country back to a dark place will win. America should be a place for life, liberty and happiness for all. Future generations depend on that promise. Teach our children well because their lives literally depend on it.
On June 12, 2016, a mass shooting occurred at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. At least 50 people, including the gunman, were killed and 53 others were wounded.
Remember those who were lost and wounded five years ago. May they never be forgotten.
Lately I have been in a weird head space. My sense of humor is kind of dry and dorky. At times I am blue and then I am some sort of other color. I don’t think it’s a bi-polar thing it’s just mood swings. Maybe that happens when you get older or something like that. Believe me I have always been a weirdo (with a heart of gold) but in the past couple of years its been a weirdo in some dark space. Grief mixed in with other stuff can create a strange cocktail. Most importantly I am very much human and there is a lot that goes with that.
