There are friends around me who are despairing of the current situation.
This helps no one.
The only way we can make needed changes is for everyone to pull together, full strength, to overcome the evil being done.
Because, to steal a line from the other side, all lives matter. Black, brown, beige, immigrant, children, elderly matter just as much as middle age white men.
It’s time to put the power with the masses, not the money.

If you are indignant about people kneeling is silent protest but not about the inequalities in this country, ask yourself why.
As a kid I remember being taunted with “dirty Jew” and other phrases. But I have a choice, I’m white, no one needs to know I’m a minority. Though to be honest, I “look like a Jew” with kinky hair and olive skin. People with skin other than beige have no choice. We shouldn’t have to try and hide our heritage.
Everyone pontificating about the sanctity of the national anthem should stop for a moment and think about worrying about your child every time they left the house just because they are a minority.
Just think about it,
And then get off your soap box so you can help fix this damned mess
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.
Reinvest your energy.
Everything we do has a ripple effect.
For making things good.
For creating harm.
For building someone up or
crushing them like an insignificant bug.
Which side of history (even your tiny corner of history) do you want to be on?
What is your legacy?
Hopefully my legacy is one of hope
There have been many times I’ve wanted to say stop this week.
To world events,
Mostly to the atrocities and hate we seem to be heaping on each other.
Just stop…… please
Poisonous gas Intentionally killing humans,
The perpetrators of this atrocity deserve the unspeakable
Have we learned nothing?
There are only so many hats you can knit for family members.
Donating them to folk with cold heads feels better anyway.
Suze is a very patient model
It is our duty to never look the other way.
Never shrug off what we know is wrong.
Don’t look away.
Fight the good fight
Never look away.
Never explain away.
Never excuse hate.
Never permit bias, bigotry or ignorance to go unnoticed.
Fight the good fight
