The Tragedy In Arizona

Posted 01-10-2011 at 05:57 AM by caninemom3

I don't understand it. We as a species, people, humans, never seem to learn. We have repeated the same horrible mistakes over and over again. This past weekend, as all probably know, there was a tragic event in Arizona where a disturbed young man started firing a gun. Some people were killed, including an innocent 9-year-old girl and a judge. A public servant was also critically injured.

And what do we do as a species, this human race ?? We start POINTING FINGERS ! This, as well as any other time, IS NOT THE TIME FOR IT. Why do we always want to blame the other guy ?? In my opinion, ALL POLITICAL PARTIES ARE GUILTY OF RHETORIC THAT SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN. Did this rhetoric cause the tragic event to happen ? I don't know. That is where some of the finger pointing starts. I will not point fingers. As a nation, we need to PULL TOGETHER especially in a time like this. Republicans, Democrats, Tea Party, Independents and ALL NEED TO STEP BACK and STOP THE CHILDISH NAME CALLING...

Killing Christmas

Posted 09-22-2010 at 09:04 PM by caninemom3

I guess I am just an idealistic sap. Each year as Christmas approaches I try to spread the Christmas spirit to everyone around me. I don't do this to be "pushy" or to try and push my faith or anything like that. I do it because it is the one time of the year I feel is truly different and I really do feel the hearts of humans tend to open a bit more at Christmas time to each other. I FEEL Christmas in my very soul and I feel I have to try and share its warmth with everyone.

I always say "Merry CHRISTmas" because for me CHRISTmas is about Christ and family and I do not just mean my family of origin because most of them are gone. I mean the family of mankind. I am usually quite bubbly and overly friendly when I am doing this and get more than a few odd looks from people. That is nothing new. I have been an oddball all my life and if being exuberant in my celebration of Christmas classifies me as an oddball then so be it !!

I somehow allow myself...
