EQUALS?

“Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.”—Margaret Atwood. Let me preface this that I am not speaking about all men. There are quite a few wonderful men in my life, so I know that this is NOT all men. Please read that again, NOT ALL … Continue reading EQUALS?

BE…

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…

LET KIDS BE KIDS

After a chat with my mother-in-law this past weekend, I realize that I need to clear up something that is important to me. I am not trying to take away anyone’s Second Amendment rights. I just want kids to stop dying. I don’t think an education is worth dying over and this should never, ever … Continue reading LET KIDS BE KIDS

“DEAR FRIEND”

Mawow reading the letter from the NRA When you write five posts a week, it can sometimes be hard to decide what to write about. I had Monday’s blog finished on Saturday and I started to think about what I should write for Tuesday (which is what you are reading now) and the topic dropped … Continue reading “DEAR FRIEND”

HATE IN AMERICA

When I hear the young adults from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Sandy Hook, and Columbine say they are disappointed in the “adults” in this country, I totally get it. They are doing what we should have done a long time ago. After the very first mass shooting at a school it should have been … Continue reading HATE IN AMERICA

MARCH FOR OUR LIVES

I was glad that so many people came, but when you have a little over 118,000 people it made … Continue reading MARCH FOR OUR LIVES

GUN CONTROL IS OVERDUE

I am writing this on the one-month anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School where 17 individuals lost their lives and 14 more were injured by a lone gunman. 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

#ENOUGH

I don’t know about you, but I have had ENOUGH! I am angry, literally angry that today children across this country on the one month anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School will walk out of their schools to march in protest the lack of movement by the President, Congress, and the … Continue reading #ENOUGH

EDUCATION IN AMERICA

The main function of the Department of Education is to establish policy for, administer and coordinate most federal assistance to education, collect data on US schools, and to enforce federal educational laws regarding privacy and civil rights." The Department of Education does not establish schools … Continue reading EDUCATION IN AMERICA

GOLDEN RULE

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
