Everyone has their own opinion. No two will have the same views on everything. People are fundamentally similar and different at the same time. I thank you WordPress community for the respect you have for differing opinion. Thank you for your open mindedness and courtesy. I do appreciate it.

The Death Penalty

I have been back and forth on the death penalty. However there comes situations where evil needs to be punished. Grace should be extended to everyone but for those who seek to do mass destruction and killing of innocent people they need to be brought to justice in a way that fits the crimes they commit. Perhaps this is an opportunity to love our neighbors in a radical way so they will learn to love others too.

Making Order of Ones Contacts

I have come to the realization that I follow a lot of people on various platforms of social media and blogging. When visiting those sites, I ask myself where do I know them from…Tumblr, WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, etc. Those situations remind me I can’t keep up with everyone. Maybe its the extrovert in me wanting to make as many contacts as possible, that is what makes me good at my job.

My brother-in-law has thousands of contacts on Facebook alone, he knows a lot of people having worked as a educator for a long time. Some people are just more social than others. Every person you meet online is a person, more than just a profile.

For me its contacts I have made through blogging networks and being a part of groups of various sorts. Someone has probably developed an app to help keep your contacts organized and to tell you where you know them from. As in anything in life you will develop a core group of people who will be interested in having a meaningful friendship with you, people who will like what you post and be concerned about you in general. Having a online life can be challenging, but its important for real world interactions with folks from your online life. Putting flesh to those who you know digitally is important.

He passed away on Thursday, May 14th in Las Vegas at the age of 89. He was the King Of The Blues and was known for playing his trademark guitar named Lucille. He influenced many who came after him. He will be missed.

Rambling About Instagram

I think Instagram is a great instant photo sharing app. It does so many things well. However in looking at my past pix it seems its mostly food I capture or places where I get food. Maybe its just me buying into a stereotype about the platform that you gotta do a picture of what you are eating at any given time. People are interested in food but they are also interested in other things too like people, places, pets, that sort of thing. To me it helps tell ones personal story in a medium that says a thousand words and more.

There are other things I capture on Instagram such as events in my life and interesting things I see out and about.

What is your story with Instagram if you use it? How does it help tell the story of your life?
