My blog has been serious today. It gets that way when the author has been heavy in thought about the world around us. I can be light-hearted trust me. Thanks for letting me be me here.
You help to make each day a special day by just you being yourself. There’s nobody else in the whole world who’s exactly like you…Fred Rodgers
I have been bullied in my life and it’s not fun. Whenever I see it being done to the least of these then I call it what it is and that is hate. No one should ever have to go through that. Perhaps those who bully for fun or to advance their agenda need to be removed from the position in which they have power or influence over others. What I am seeing in the world we live in is tragic and is costing people their lives. God be with those who are trying escape spiritual, political, emotional and social bullying.
Mary the mother of Jesus is a venerated saint of the Christian church. A woman held in high regard. However her “daughters” suffer much religious persecution. Jesus told us to love one another and that all are one in him. To see how women are treated by the system of evangelical Christianity that has put many bad people in power is quite disappointing and frightening. Women seem to be bullied more than ever and that is something that people should stand up against. The women of the world deserve better than what they are getting from men.
This year is my 30th High School reunion. This Flashback Friday is from my 25th High School reunion. I’m a member of the class of 1988 of Red Bank High School in Chattanooga TN.
To all the women who have had to endure unnecessary harassment I am sorry you went through the horrible treatment you faced. You didn’t deserve it. As a man I’m sorry for all you have had to live with in the aftermath. Grace and peace to you and your family.
Thick cut bologna sandwich and tater tots from Merv’s Hamburgers. This was a really good sandwich featuring good fried bologna with cheese, lettuce and pickle. Something familiar but different for dinner last night.
It’s only Thursday but Friday is on it’s way. This has been a long and busy week for me and I’m glad it’s almost over. I hope you are having a good week and ready for the weekend. Love and peace to you and yours.
