My Hope For America On July 4th

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.

All Black Lives Matter #BLM #LGBTQ

I thought this was cool. The intersection of Black Lives Matter and Pride Month coming together to honor Black LGBTQ people and the greater fight for justice and equality. Social justice in action to seek inclusion.

Quote Of The Day

I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those that do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation.

Women’s Equality Day | National Women’s History Project #womensequalityday

At the behest of Rep. Bella Abzug (D-NY), in 1971 the U.S. Congress designated August 26 as “Women’s Equality Day.”The date was selected to commemorate the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. This was the culmination of a massive, peaceful civil rights movement by women that had its formal beginnings in 1848 at the world’s first women’s rights convention, in Seneca Falls, New York.

Our country is stronger when our women have equal pay for equal work. Women deserve access to resources to make their lives better. The women in my life should have every advantage I do. Too many women aren’t treated with respect and dignity and that has to change.

Rambling About Having A Level Playing Field

Amazing things can happen in a community when there is a level playing field for everyone. That means that you and others can go higher and do more things together. Equality and opportunity are important to make the 21st century its best. On the job its especially important when you want to advance your cause to have everyone working together at full strength.

Being awesome means having everyone be awesome from the same place.

I am grateful to have a loving wife who I am sharing this life with. I am grateful that my friends who have fought to share their lives with people they love get that chance too. May God bless us all who seek to live together in love and peace.
