Strength and Good Deeds.

So shines a good deed in a weary world.

-Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971).

I think that it is safe to say that many of us are weary.  Both politically and socially, the last year has left many of us drained, disillusioned and just plain tired.  The US government, justice system, and political machine lack transparency, decency, morals or sense of justice for anyone who happens to be some shade of brown or female; not to mention poor, underemployed or disabled.

With all of this being said, what is most important is how we, as people, treat each other.  There is so much fear and uncertainty about the future of our rights and freedoms; and whether or not they will still exist after inauguration day 2017; we need to be able to lean on each other for support and understanding as the edges of reason continue to blur out of focus.  All of us sensical, reasonable people living in the world cannot afford to apathetic or indifferent to ills of our fellow man, just because their color, sex or religion is not our own.

We need to be able to look on each other with kindness and understand that we should judge each other on our individual merits, judge each other based on our deeds, and cast all knee-jerk xenophobia aside.  We need good deeds to shine now more than ever.  We are all we’ve got.

  1. I have noticed, that the darker times get, the more I hear, “More now than ever.” This has been said about loyalty, kindness, friendship, marriage church, love, and anything else you can think of. People are saying that. How about this. How about we force into fruition the light, so that people can stop saying such lines that no one will ever listen to. Oh yeah, you’ll nod your head to it, and think, “Mmmhmm, she’s right, he right, they’re right,” but then you’ll go about your business and “Mmmhmm” something else, fully forgetting the last thing you just nodded to. How about jotting down what you nod to, and review it at the end of the day, and keep it, so that you know what you’re supporting. HM? What am I’m doing to talk so big? I’m soon to make posts on YouTube about moving forward and ending foolishness. Trump isn’t the end of anything, just the mascot of the virus that is hatred in this shit-hole country. I have deep issues that I can’t solve in my lifetime for this country, but you know what, I’ll go out screaming from the rooftops, how I feel, and how we can possibly get better. If people are too damn stupid to listen to me, someone on their side to help make things better for all, then THAT individual, is a REASON why this country remains a shit-hole. I’m not flowery, dainty, needlessly uplifting on youtube. I’m direct, in your face, and speaking from the ground level on things people can’t wait to ignore have been blinded to, that other social media won’t speak on. Are you BRAVE enough to listen to a different perspective? I think you are. You read up to this point. Just give me a try. If you like it just a tiny bit of what I have to say, subscribe, and give me a month. Thank you for reading.
