 Here’s a note about the sparking American flag I used in the photo here….

It is one of my grandmother’s cherished pins she used to wear. She was my mother’s mother and singlehandedly raised her children on her own due to my grandfather James Hubert Hart dying of spinal meningitis when my mother was four years old.

Mom said the day that she finally realized that she was alive was the day she overheard someone talking about who is getting all the kids, and what houses they were all going to because Grandma couldn’t afford to take care of them all herself.

Grandma wasn’t afraid to take a man’s job in a time when it was was very unpopular for a woman to rivet airplanes -but she did. 

There wasn’t anything that could stop my grandmother Ruby Hart.

 She was proud to be an American citizen and so appreciative of everything that you ever did for her— just like my mother.

That’s why when she had Alzheimer’s disease-like my mother had, untiL she touched the face of God nearly a year ago  I didn’t think anything of helping taking care of her.

 I bought her big print Readers Digest books to encourage her to talk and keep her mind active…and they did.

 She read one of them every day … so I bought more for her and she smiled as she read each story.

I found them at local libraries and we would talk about the stories in each story, which would inspire her to tell me about her life recalling memories of when she was younger.

I don’t have a digital image of Grandma-yet’ but I’ll create one for this story I didn’t know I was going to write, until writing the first sentence! 

I know we have our trouble in America, but when you compare us to other countries- it’s pretty damn nice country anyway you look at it. We have precious  freedoms another country can match.

I didn’t say God Bless America because I wanted everyone no matter who they were to be able to relate to the image and the meaning behind image.

 I’m Christian so I’ll always say God Bless America, but as an empowered lady I would love to see all of us all over the world worry less about religion & culture and focus more about just treating each other kindly and know everyone has a right to believe what they feel strongly about.

As long as they are not hurting you or anyone then let him believe it if they find solace and peace through it.

Uniting as living, breathing people who have the power to good-is my dream for not only America but for the world.

Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate

Http://www.TotallyInspiredMind.com

  

I was trying to put into words the term for when you do something just because it is right but not because it EASY or THE STATUS QUO.  A fellow writer and blogger friend of mine called it “moral courage” the other day.

We are all connected on this big, water covered planet we call earth. There is only one of them, so if we mess it up or the people who inhabit it, we never have a chance to go back and fix it. Life on earth as we know it is a “one shot deal” so we better get it right the first time and quit living as though everything is expendable.

image

We have a throwaway society anymore and people and the apathy towards people in general has gone along with the trash we throw away. It shouldn’t be and I am not saying that all people are apathetic, because of course they are not. There are just many who could do far more than they do for others they meet in everyday life.

Once the water systems are polluted, what do we do?

image

Just these thoughts are good ones to ponder in terms of how we should be making sure there are no oil spills killing our fish and wildlife and ruining the water.

image

Human beings have a lot in common with the earth in that they are both mostly composed of water. Without it, all life ceases to be.

What about bombs and the warfare, chemical or otherwise? Since I was married to a rocket scientist and he was the master of logic and science; since we were married for fifteen years, I chose to take with me the best of what I learned and the best of our memories together. Why throw a bomb that will kill thousands of innocent women, children, and ruin the land around it, making it impossible to plant anything-just to wipe out that one “target”? It isn’t logical to me.

Why not find and train more people who speak the languages of the countries we are fighting right now, or at least have our military people in like Afghanistan and Syria?

Try something you haven’t tried before.

Success models are made up of prototypes that worked. Once you know the model, you can strive to create one that works as well or supersedes it.

How about our budget that the so-called great leaders in the United States of America have concocted?

Above wallpaper image from Zedge.

There has not been any trace of anyone from the two Bush’s to Reagan who has ever tried to come up with a budget that would start paying off the debt already incurred. Obama keeps spending and China owns more of America. It’s like a dirty American secret that nobody wants to take accountability for. 

Will our next president of the United States make sure the priorities are in the right places? I certainly hope so, but rather than seeing human beings who invented great leadership skills, I see Trump as an overgrown brat who tragically never grew up. I see Clinton with major trust issues going in the office, after breaching national securiy. Wish you did with a lot more than just sharing emails! People lost lives because of those emails and that cannot be overstated.

 I haven’t sat through one debate becauase it is not one by true definition.  A debate is where people are asked intelligent, hard-hitting questions and they answer them , and an intelligent  fashion .  Trump  and Clinton are good at insulting each other and name calling and badgering. I had little tolerance for badgering in elementary school and I have absolutely zero tolerance for that kind of behavior now.

Is there some kind of moral conduct and we can demand that of our presidential candidates?
It’s almost as though you need a referee make in a boxing match.

 

‘ve never seen a time in our political history where we’ve needed in an actual referee like it’s a boxing match verses to great minds talking about what they would each do. We never had that in the election from the get-go

I am not sure what kind of actual good they can accomplish, since they are not showing the best of who they are when that is exactly what they should be doing!

This is idiocy and being that I was born and raised in The United States and never want to see the day when China owns America.

What is going on is a vicious cycle of stupidity, borrowing on China’s credit and we are looking the fool in the eyes of other countries.

Before I get on a this one topic alone, that infuriates me at the stupidity and complete lack of responsibility on the parts of all who work for the government for not prioritizing paying the debt of the USA.

I hope I see the day when a budget is created and adhered to. I hope I see the day when we have a new president who has one known social security number, and stands for things that benefit Americans instead of big businesses.

I hope I see the day when you can get a job in America without having to know Vietnamese or Spanish, when it is America you are trying to get the job and not Vietnam or Mexico.

image

I hope I see the day when people try to be more kind and tolerant of each other’s differences.
Movie makers, producers and directors put positive and empowering messages out there instead coming up with a crime show give goofballs and psychos ideas to blow things up and kill people in movie theaters. Values can and could dictate our society, if we all wanted that badly enough.

I hope I see the day when our president realizes that every action has a chain reaction be it a bomb, something that is not needed that tax payer’s end up paying for. China is buying more of America up every day as the imaginary credit card is used.

They print up so much “play money” that I don’t think they understand in the real world, for you and I and everyone else, we all have to pay our debts. Why isn’t the White House and those who write the checks accountable as we are?

Breaking laws to fit personal agendas doesn’t make me proud of the current leadership. Can’t we as Americans demand to see how the money is spent? They are working for the American people and are supposed to be our ambassadors.

image

What are your major concerns for our country? What would you like to see happen in the next year in America?

Please Mr. President Obama, well you’re still president- open your eyes, wake up and be accountable for what you spend regarding our country.

Students arming Syrian terrorist and creating Isis why don’t you look at all the veterans who have no homes?

What did you think of raising the cost of living index for all people who are disabled on SSI and SSDI?

Why don’t you see that every American in every state can live in dignity and peace and have all their Corporal needs met before you think of taking money we don’t have and giving it to other countries?
NOW is a good time to create and adhere to a workable budget, not just hype.

Start caring and acting responsibly and care about America being owned my Americans and how we take care of it now is the gift we will hand down to our children.

Prayer For Our Nation

God our Father, Giver of life,
We entrust The United States of America to your loving care.

You are The Rock on which this nation was founded. You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Reclaim this land For Your Glory and dwell among Your people.

Send your spirit to touch the hearts of our nation’s leaders. Open their minds to the great worth of human life and the responsibilities that that accompany human freedom.

Remind your people that true happiness is rooted in seeking and doing Your will.

Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, patroness of our land, grant us the courage to reject the culture of death.

Lead us into the New Millennium of life.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Trump The Racist is a Walking Ball of Hatred by Paulette L Motzko

image

One of my many black friends on Facebook (Elder Israel Odulana)just posted this news clipping which outraged me.  This is the last straw in racial bigoted generalizations Trump has made. He has castigated the Mexican Community, the Middle Eastern Community and the Black Community.  Who’s left?

If you value the freedom that our great country and States of America was based on- and our soldiers fought for don’t vote for Trump.

If you value the freedoms that we have in the United States of America and equal rights for all people don’t vote for Trump.

Writers are powerful people they can change minds, and ENLIGHTEN OTHERS and EDUCATE and I hope to do that with this piece.

If Trump hates the Mexican community and thinks they’re all drug lords and criminals, and if he hates the Middle Eastern people and if he wants to ban them practicing their faith, and if he thinks black people are lazy, my question is:

Mr. Trump who do you LIKE?
Only white bigots?

I grew up in the sixties and I couldn’t understand the hatred that racism was based on.

Donald Trump is a walking ball of hatred for about every single nationality there is. The blanket generalizations he’s made on numerous occasions are only the beginning of how he would destroy what the USA stands for-freedom & equality.

I saw black people being forced to drink out of separate water fountains and it was shocking to me then when I was 9 years old in the 60’s. I have tons of black friends, tons of Mexican friends, Cuban friends, Filipino friends, and I treat everybody the same- as it should be.

Thank God for the civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King Jr and Cesar Chavez who made great leaps for equality in the United States of America.

Trump is like a disease who would bring forth only negativity to the USA, promoting racism, and unfair practices. He would destroy the progress that our great country has made from an equal rights standpoint.

I’m so happy that we’ve evolved so much since the mid 60’s. Trump would make us go back in time and promote hatred and inequality.

Trump likes only white rich people obviously, because he’s put down about every other nationality there is. What’s left? I was married to a rocket scientist for 15 years so when you eat out about every nationality there is what’s left white people is that we want white English-speaking people United States? That’s what Trump wants, he wants to put a bridge in to separate us.

Only white, arrogant, republican, rich people who wear power suits?

This is something for all of you Trumpsters to think about.

Do you want to live in the United States where the Statue of Liberty is thrown into the sea and we don’t welcome people from other countries anymore?

I don’t.

SHARE MY MESSAGE HERE  with your friends if you agree.

Thank you.

I’m going to post this on two of my blogs- Totally Inspired Mind that is read by 100 countries now after 5 years and The Political Think Tank.

Thomas Jefferson’s Birthday Tomorrow -Read His Timely Words

The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson.
https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=R8fTAAAAMAAJ

Tomorrow is Thomas Jefferson’s birthday celebrated in the United States here and I was surprised to see that nobody wrote about it on WordPress when I searched on the reader.
image

I have one of his books and found it from in an antique store years ago.

He wrote several books and was a very good writer. This one is in public domain and I found it on Google Books, the cold Google Play Books.

You can read some of his inaugural addresses on here and you can find them in the table of contents. I thought if I’m the only one on WordPress to write about him and to remember the day then so be it. If you’re in school learning history this is exceptional.

Always look on other Google Play Books or LibriVox audiobooks before you buy one! Chances are you can find them on one or the other for a greatly reduced price because it’s an ebook.

As you’ll see even though he lived in the 1700’s, the truth still resonates in his words today, even more so to me. I wish he was president today because he would have listened to the voice of the American people, who are in essence America. He would have adhered to the Constitution the United States of America I’m not taking prepaid vacations all over the world like the president we have today.

He helped shape Freedom as we know it today in the United States of America by being the author of the Declaration of Independence. He helped define Freedom as we know it, as well as all of the military people throughout the years who have made sacrifices and died for it.

I hope and pray our next leader does a better job than what’s in there now.
