To all the Asian folks out there I hope you are doing your best to be safe and to stay strong and just live life on your terms. You are a vital part of the fabric of the country and the world. The hatred and violence you are experiencing is wrong on every level.
Hang in there and reach out if you need to. To my friends in the Asian community I am with you. You are good people. We need to stop this Asian hate.
Also we must continue to remember those in the Black community who continue to seek justice and equality. Black lives always matter too.
The 2020 Election was called for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris one week ago today. It was a great day where things seemed to look brighter for America. Now we look forward to votes being certified then Inauguration on January 20th. There is still much work to do to deal with Coronavirus, the economy and more issues facing America and the world.
This is what I want America to be. While we are at it throw in health care for all and science is valued. America doesn’t have to be great if it can be better than it is now. Wouldn’t it be nice, just saying.
Monday is Memorial Day in the USA where those who served and sacrificed everything in the military are remembered and honored. A solemn and serious time of reflection and honor to those who are no longer with us because they died for their nation.
It is my hope that those who have served and sacrificed over the past few years have done so for all Americans. Freedom and liberty are two words used a lot in the USA and it doesn’t seem everyone has access to those ideals that many people hold fast to their heart and soul.
Yes, I am a liberal but I respect those who chose to wear the uniform of this nation. Not everyone can or will make that choice and its an individual decision. Also not everyone is suited for this type of service. For those who serve who are also a part of the LGBTQ community thank you for being on the wall, on the front lines and doing so even though many in this country hates you just for being who you were born to be.
Let’s remember those who gave all but strive to make that sacrifice worth it for everyone. It’s the American way isn’t it?
