Time to Foster Change

You’re Not Fooling Anybody

For the last twenty-five years, I have watched our political system slowly turn into the shit show it is today. Ever since Bush v Gore the polarization of American politics has gotten undeniably worse year after year. Now it is completely clogged to the point we can’t move ahead (pun intended).

Happy To Be Awake

So, what’s wrong with being woke. This term really seems to annoy some people, especially those in political positions. It’s hard for me to comprehend how a “leader” in the 21st century can be so afraid of those of us who choose to make ourselves actively attentive to the important facts and issues of the day.

I Have This Idea

A child has this uncanny ability to make a parent become acutely self aware of themselves. Nothing like a little one who readily relies on your every word and action to mirror back at you what you’re truly made of.

Nothing Normal About Abuse

There are hundreds of millions of us, past and present, that would consider ourselves abuse survivors. Myself included. I’m sure if you took a look around at the people in your everyday life, you will most likely find someone you know who has suffered or continues to suffer from some form of abuse. Maybe that person is you.

Reasoning For My Stance

The other day I received an email from an individual asking me why I support separating families. Fair enough question. However, I think the answer to that inquiry has been explained repetitively throughout each of my blog postings.

Little Boxes

We all do it. Consciously or subconsciously when we first meet someone…we just can’t help ourselves from assigning this unsuspecting individual to a box. And in this box, goes all of our impressions, assessments, thoughts, feelings, biases, insights and perceptions that formed the verdict we just methodically made in regard to this person.

The Consequences of Moral Justification

When we are kids we don’t have a clue what is happening to us, we just go with the flow. From the time we are born to the time we set out on our own we are perpetually indoctrinated with thought systems, religious beliefs, moral codes, customs, methods, rules…all of which come from somewhere outside ourselves.
