I am sharing this post that I found on “Discover,” because “Black Lives Matter,” and because there are way too many Black individuals who have and are still losing their lives by the hands of the police. The infusement of hatred and bigotry that is being so brazenly diplayed by individuals who seem to reap joy in hurting other human beings, because of the color of their skin, race, religion, and sexual preferences, has to stop. It really should not be so hard for those who harnest so much disdain towards others to just live their lives and allow others to live theirs.
I’ve read and listened to each of the poems here and boy did they touch my soul, and so I am sharing them with you here. Thanks “Discover,” ever so much for posting them.
Poetry can often channel grief, pain, solidarity, and resistance in ways that everyday language can’t.
I just had to share this one from “It Is What It Is”
Originally posted on claytoonz: Donald Trump and Melania have tested positive for the Trump virus. Donald Trump played down the virus. He admitted as such. He floated bogus cures and treatments. He’s called it the “China Virus” and the “Wuhan Virus.” He’s scolded and punished his scientists for doing their jobs. He’s hired lackeys and…
Did you watch the first Presidential debate between Biden and Trump? The topic for last night’s debate were as follows: Trump & Biden’s Records, The Supreme Court, Covid-19, The Economy, Race and Violence in the Cities, The Integrity of the Election, and Trump’s taxes. If you watched the Presidential debate, you were probably just as pissed off as I was with the behavior of Trump. It was a catastrophe, however, if you asked my opinion as to who won the debate, I would have to side with Biden, because he was the opponent who did his best in answering questions and in giving out factual information. What are your thoughts?
Joe Biden did his best to answer the questions put before him by Wallace, however, Trump just would not allow it. He was a five year old on a school playground, throwing out insults, misinformation, and intimidation. It was terrible. Trump never answered any questions directly, he began answering, but always found a way to steer his answers in direction of cutting up Biden and Obama. The man even found a way to throw in Hillary. Geez!
I don’t know about you but I would have like to hear more about Biden’s new tax and health plan, especially, how he intends to bring our country to a vibrate economy. It’s apparent that Trump had another agenda, and whether he knows it or not, he just continues to show just how much of an embarrassment and disgrace he is to America. Deepening the distrust and hatred of other countries toward America.
We were never a country that was well-liked by others, and that was because of our independence, our free speech, and other liberties that some may or may not have taken for granted, however, we were a country nonetheless that was looked upon as a land of opportunity. And since Trump has taken office that slogan that most of us Americans were proud of has changed. According to and what I and countless other Americans, define what America means today, is that America is no longer the land of opportunity for all, instead, it is the land of opportunity for only Caucasians. For it seems that Trump is hell-bent on taking America back in time to when race issues were at their worst. This White Supremacists. And slowly but surely, this country is slipping backward, to the praise of those who are in power now and to all the racists and bigots individuals who refuse to move forward and live in a country of unity and peace.
Hello, Howdy, and How are you? Its been so very long since I thought about, let alone had the time to sit and type out my thoughts here.
As always, whenever I go on a long hiatus, I return to a barely recognizable, upgraded, fresh way of posting what’s on my mind on WordPress. Although, it takes some time getting use to, one must admit that it is great that changes have been made to not take away from, but to improve and showcase the artistic flair of writers here on this platform. To that I say, “Kudos WordPress! Keep those improvements coming!”
How is everyone doing during this very unexpected and sudden plague that has been literally place on the steps of everyone’s door. More and more people are suffering from the virus, either personally, or by way of a friend or family member. When word of the virus became known to us peons, we were all nervous, and prayed that we would be spared from it. But as days became weeks, and weeks became months, we found out the hard way that this plague does not discriminate and has taken countless lives of many, young and old. And worst of all the plague is still among us and we are told that a cure is forth coming, and that the testing/trials will begin shortly, if they have not begun already. To this, we can only hope something positive comes from the trials and stay hopeful that a drug and/or vaccine will become available by the early part of next year, fingers crossed.
Until then, continue to don your masks and please stay safe.
This is by no means a blog that practices separations of gender for I believe that we have enough of separation ad mistreatment from those who are either afraid of our type of love, do not understand our love, or who are just plain hateful. You may be wondering why I felt it necessary to mention that I am a lesbian, and the answer to that is simple the fight for Equality is real and the fight continues today. Sadly, in this day and time we are still working for that which should be ours already, to be Truly Respected and be considered Equal because the bottom line is, we are all humans and deserve to be treated that way.
It is my belief that we are all in this together and it is necessary to remain that way in order to continue to advance toward the goal of achieving Awareness, Acceptance, and True Equality. I don’t know about you, but I look forward to that day when words like Acceptance, Awareness, and Equality are no longer utilized when discussing or speaking about issues concerning the LGBTQI+ community.
I welcome and thank you for visiting and hope to see and hear from you often. I also look forward to your feedback, For Every Small Step Taken Toward Equality Is A Major Step Towards Achievement.
Should you have a story of your own, –– please don’t hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I look forward to hearing from you soon.
This blog will be an attempt to explain the significance of various works of great writing, the authors that create them, and some effort to understand correlations between great writing and contemporary events.
