Hello!

Welcome! I’m Glad You Stopped By

This website is an outlet for my writing, whether it be blog posts, creative endeavors or non-fiction.

Alas, as of late, politics have been weighing heaviest on my mind and taken over my blog.

While I have always maintained that the POTUS, all differences aside, is deserving of respect and deference due the title, the current White House resident, and his words, and actions do not fall under the category of difference of opinion.

Therefore combating this inept administration’s agenda of hate and lies has prompted me to work towards replacing members of congress who work against the rights and dignity of all and future Americans.

While there is much to decry, it has been inspiring to witness the incredible show of unity across America and the world in response to this tragedy.

Despite the unfettered hate spurred by POTUS’s at his own rallies, we persist in getting women, people of color, and members of marginalized communities elected to public positions across the nation. 

The continued attacks on our personal rights and freedoms by POTUS and the Republican Party, coalesce important issues to guide our voting, such as women’s reproductive rights, gun control, the racist killing and imprisonment of people of color, the need for protecting the safety and well-being of our immigrant communities, and the LGBTQ communities. Issue by which we can measure a candidate worthy of representing us.

Those who support, and safe guard the laws intended to protect and serve all, versus those who attack and malign these protections. Those who support, and fight to enact progressive policies that enrich all members of society, versus those protecting the wealthiest and whitest of America.

It is easy to let outrage cloud ones judgement, and deafen oneself to opposing views. I struggle mightily to maintain an open mind and civil tongue. I am trying to act, and react, inform and enlighten in ways that support what I believe in, without falling prey to the hate and fear mongering so prevalent in the opposing party.

I strive to be generous of spirit, and kind. To listen without judgement to stories across the spectrum, from those who are like-minded, to those who are polar opposite. It is only through our shared narratives that the divide between us can be narrowed. I truly wish to understand the needs of all, and how we can find common ground on which to move forward.

This does not mean accepting behavior that is incongruent to ones values, or morals, but should be in support of this, our pledge – in its original form.

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
