This post will most likely offend some readers and perhaps put me on a “naughty list ” somewhere, but today I feel it’s important to note that while we are a country of many freedoms, that is indeed great in a multitude of ways, there are inequities, pure wrongs, and areas in which we could do so much better. To ignore them is to be a silent accessory to them. In no way do I hate my country. I hate some of the things that are happening in it. Some of the actions being taken in its name. I also believe we must use our voices, energy, resources, time and most importantly our votes to make our country and this world a better place for all of us, not just some of us.
Call me a Debbie Downer. Accuse me of spoiling the barbeque. Unfollow. Spew hate. Whatever you feel in your heart you need to do. You’ve had that independence and freedom since 1776. Happy 4th!
Peace and Love
