I had a different post scheduled, but I’m postponing it.
Today I want to share things that I think need your attention or prayers or anger or money or voice.
Do I need to explain this? Steph, Alexandra, and Emily have mentioned it on their blogs. I feel so helpless and I can’t understand how we, as humans and citizens on this earth, are letting this happen. I want to do so much more than give money. I want to give these kids a childhood, give these families a safe haven, give these humans four walls and safety. Shame on those with the mentality ‘Not my kid/country, not my problem.’ I’m finding it hard to be festive and merry knowing this is happening in our world…
Tarek & Christina.
Maybe you haven’t see anything about this, but we’re big HGTV/Flip-or-Flop fans so we’ve kind of been following it. This house flipping couple is separating after seven years of marriage. I don’t know the story and I won’t speculate, and I understand that they live a lot of their lives in the limelight, but America needs to get off the high horses and show some compassion. I have seen many comments about how Christina was bossy or controlling or a b*tch and Tarek probably couldn’t take it. (*never read the comments*) First of all, they work together and the cameras capture the “dramatic” moments. Secondly, if you see decisive, strong, intelligent women as “b*tches” then it’s time for you to leave my blog. Third: Stop judging other people. It’s not your job, America.
I think prayers are most appropriate for this bullet point. Or good, positive, healing vibes if that’s more your thing.
Our Eff-ed Up Government
It’s no surprise that I detest the election results- I don’t want a big, orange, hands-y, hateful troll as the leader of the free world. And I don’t want a foreign country controlling our politics. As a nation, we should be pissed. Where are all the paranoid Americans that still think President Obama is a Muslim or a werewolf or not an American citizen?! Why aren’t y’all crying foul on a conspiracy/security breach that’s actually happening?!
Call someone and complain. Start with the human that represents you on a national level while making thousands of dollars doing it.
Some might says it’s trivial in comparison to my first point, but it’s not. Take care of one another. Take care of all living things. If you see an animal outside with no shelter, form of warmth, thawed water, or food then you need to say something. Talk to the owner, call the police, look up your local humane officer. Legally, they have to go check out the situation.
Well I am successfully riled up. Let’s go do something about it.
