Commentary On Current Events

The situation with Iran has me scared. It should have us all scared. To be honest I never felt afraid of either country and now we have to be concerned in light of the assassination of Qassem Soleimani. Sure he might have been a dangerous individual but his killing in my view will mean violence against American forces and perhaps civilians in the region. To me, it was the wrong move. Diplomacy and foreign policy should always win the day when it can.

The Bushfires Of Australia images coming out of the country are heartbreaking. The people of the country are having to escape the fires. Property and lives have been lost. The greatest impact is so many animals have lost their homes and so many more have been killed.

A Word Of Support, End Discrimination, Freedom For All #lgbtq

Discrimination is wrong. It is something that speaks to the worst in people and organizations. When it comes to making a living being LGBTQ folks should not be afraid of losing their rights to life, liberty and happiness. We are in the 21st century and the fact that discrimination is a problem for so many is quite sad. I hope for the very best today as the US Supreme Court decides some issues regarding LGBTQ discrimination. It’s time freedom is open for all.

Bonus Thought Of The Day

When four living First Ladies, numerous religious leaders, people from both sides of the political spectrum and so many more are calling for the end to this sinful separation of families how can anyone deny it is really happening? Families should be together. Children are being traumatized and that is not good for their future development.
