The sun rose orange

1000 have died in floods this summer in India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh.

Who knows how Houston will recover, I mean the poor not the rich. Who gives a crap what ethnicity is helping what ethnicity there?

Wild fires are searing Canada and the western United States. Our sun is apocalyptic orange due to the smoke.

It is the responsibility of everyone to stop being part of the problem. At least stop using devisive words. Remove “Snowflake” and “Trumper” from your vocabulary.

If we all put as much effort into helping instead of hating, life would get a lot better for a whole lot of people.

Including us

Reinvest your energy.

Persevere 


My husband died of a brain tumor 19 years ago. This was one of his favorite sayings. 

When I feel as though I’m in a slog-fest with bits, pieces or the entire world I remember this…. and him

Care

It is our duty as humans to care. 

Years ago there was a woman in my life who could no longer see a purpose in staying alive. She was really just an acquaintance but I was her choice of lifeline. For months she would call five to ten times a day sometimes pleading with me to permit her to die. 

Of course I beseeched her to seek help and eventually I contacted her brother,though I had sworn not to.  Time and medication stabilized her and I was no longer needed. But it taught me never to look the other way, to always speak up and offer assistance. 

What about you? 

Can you help? 

Do you need help?

Quiet militant 


2017 terrifies me and not much does

But this year…. so many unknowns that could terribly impact the most vulnerable among us. 

So I will drown out the hate and bias with a quiet militancy.

Come and join me

Fear


A counselor used to say to me “anger is just sadness masquerading ” 

We could say the same of fear pretending to be hate. 

Interesting perspective for all the jerks who have oozed out of the cracks since November
