Good Morning Y’all! I know it’s been a hot minute since I have written anything for my blog and I apologize for leaving y’all hanging. It wasn’t intentional, I promise. Somewhere in the middle of Camp NaNo, I think I lost my drive to write. I finished six days early and I couldn’t bring myself … Continue reading DID YA MISS ME?
Hello, my friends. This day has been pretty heavy for me and I cannot believe that Anthony Bourdain has committed suicide. This is the second death this week from suicide and it has given me a reason to pause and reflect upon why this is happening. We look at famous people and think they must … Continue reading RIP ANTHONY BOURDAIN
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. Director. I wrote a piece on her earlier this month, … Continue reading BE THE BIGGER PERSON, PLEASE
Since Donald Trump announced his candidacy, I have tuned into the news every waking moment. The moment he glided down the gold-plated escalator announced that he was running for president and that Mexican people are rapists, drug dealer and some are good people, he guesses. Has he never met a person who is Hispanic that … Continue reading BE…
Serious question my friends, how does Trump get so many people to fall for his lies? Or convince people to do things for him that they should do? Like, he got Doctor Bornstein to say he wrote the letter that was allegedly dictated by Donald Trump himself? Technically, I think most of us knew that … Continue reading TEFLON™ DON
As I am writing this, it is Thursday evening and International Women’s day. I wanted to write about a few women in my life that have helped shape the woman I have become and I thought it would be good to end the week on a positive note. My mom is the strongest woman I … Continue reading INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY (belated)
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?
Today, I spent my afternoon watching the Listening Session at the White House with students, parents, and teachers from Parkland, Florida, Sandy Hook and Columbine. As you know I prefer to read the transcripts, but I am glad that I tuned in. During the meeting, Donald Trump had a card with notes on them. At … Continue reading LISTENING SESSION & TOWN HALL
Yesterday was President’s Day, well not really. It was George Washington’s birthday, but not really. Washington’s birthday became president’s day, but George Washington’s birthday is February 22nd. But national holidays were moved to the closest Monday, so today was just Monday, so Happy Fake President/Washington’s birthday Monday. So, in short, A fake president’s day for … Continue reading FAKE PRESIDENT’S DAY FOR A FAKE PRESIDENT
