The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command…George Orwell, 1984
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.
Good leadership requires intelligence, wisdom, restraint, compassion and understanding of complex issues. When none of that is present then those in power must be replaced. #Vote2018 to make vital changes in leadership to make things better for the country and the world.
On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today. For More visit March For Our Lives – March 24, 2018
I fully support this effort to demand that the lives and safety of kids and families are a priority. Gun violence has become a problem around the country and around the world. It’s time that this issue is taken seriously. The students who are leading this are a inspiration and give me hope for the present and the future.
I have found that people who say keep your politics to yourself are the ones who hate being challenged because of theirs. Perhaps its people who have enjoyed the status quo for decades and when they have to be uncomfortable because what they believe is a system built on selfishness, privilege and some level of discrimination. We are starting to see this more and more as people start to ratchet up the level of hate.
Five years ago today, 20 first-graders and six school staffers were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
Remember these souls today and work for peace in your community so events like this never happen again.
