This morning when I began checking my email and doing research for my next blog, I was bombarded with ads for the three-day weekend and posts on social media about finding a beach and planting themselves for the next three days. We are a country of so-called patriots, but do people understand the meaning around … Continue reading MEMORIAL DAY
Good Morning Y’all! 🤠 Yet again, I am writing late at night. I really need to learn to follow the schedule I set for myself. I write down what I need to do each day in my planner, but it seems like it all flies out the window and I get nothing done. Although, I … Continue reading STOP RACISM
Good Morning My Friends, I am having a hard time not being angry at Kelly Sadler (LINK) “joking” and saying “John McCain is dying anyway.” It all started because John McCain was urging the Senate to vote against Gina Haspel, Donald Trump’s pick for C.I.A.

Good morning y’all, like yesterday I am still suffering from a Trump rally hangover. I still can’t believe I watched the entire thing without losing my mind.

BUSH/WHERE IS THE LOVE?

Today nearly a million students walked out of school to demand gun control by our government. These students acted without violence but made … Continue reading GUN CONTROL IS OVERDUE
If you have children or when you were younger, most of us were taught between right and wrong by our parents. I was taught the golden rule, “do unto others what you want them to do to you.” Or basically saying treat others how you want them to treat you. Think about if you have … Continue reading GOLDEN RULE
Why I do what I do… I was the person who donated clothes to Goodwill, donated money at Christmas to the red kettles, gave food to the local food bank a few times a year and I thought I was doing good. Don’t get me wrong, donating when you are able too is wonderful. There … Continue reading ME
**Trigger Warning** Blog topic of guns and school shootings Right now I am listening to Wayne LaPierre the CEO of the NRA give a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference and I swear I can feel my blood pressure rise. I am finding out things about the National Rifle Association that I find absolutely … Continue reading GUNS, GOD-GIVEN RIGHT?
