In the last analysis, the individual person is responsible for living his own life and for finding himself. If he persists in shifting his responsibility to somebody else, he fails to find out the meaning of his own existence.Thomas Merton
Serious shit is going on and we need serious people to act. I am trying to be one of those persons.
Hurricanes, pandemic, racism, homophobia, homegrown terrorism, unemployment are dominating the headlines and it seems so very overwhelming. I am mad that there are some folks are not taking any of this seriously. This is a national and global community issue. We can also say there are people who are having a hard time paying rent, keeping the lights on and food in the pantry.
There is much pain to be felt and some aren’t even acknowledging anything is going on. I can honestly say things are not going in a positive direction and its OK to admit that. Being realistic is good if things are going to get better.
All I can say is that Donald Trump is a jackass who is empowered by evil. He does evil. He is not truly serious about leading. He just wants the title. Screw him. His supporters should repent for supporting him. He has to go for the worlds sake. He’s not for life he’s dealing in death and the evil of greed.
Right now I am righteously mad as hell and that is more than OK.
Things are so weird these days.
Controversy is unavoidable in crazy times.
Representative John Lewis of Georgia is a titan in the cause of civil rights, gay rights and human rights. Mr. passed away on July 17th, 2020 after a battle with cancer. His life was dedicated to making the world a better place for everyone. In every sense of the word he was a patriot. Thank you good sir for all the good trouble you caused in changing the world for many. You did things for others at your own peril and safety. Your legacy will be one celebrated in history and memory. Rest in power Mr. Lewis.
When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something.John Lewis
This Shrek themed meme has all sorts of truth in it. Masks, schools, elections and Hamilton are the leading topics of conversation and news in many of our social feeds. I know many folks who have logged off because of the chaos and negativity. There is a balance somewhere between being informed and preserving sanity.
In honor of Breonna Taylor and others who have died horribly. Rest in power Ms. Taylor.
Today is a historic day as a crewed spaceflight hopefully will take place from American soil. NASA along with Space X are partnering to launch The Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station on a Falcon 9 rocket.
My dad was a huge space nerd. He loved stuff like this. I am watching this in memory of him and to share this special event with him in spirit. Let’s hope that the weather cooperates and these Astronauts will be with the crew of the Space Station today.
