Hello!

Welcome! I’m Glad You Stopped By

This website serves as an outlet for my writing concerning the craft of writing, my own creative writing and my personal views on current events.

Lately, politics are weighing heavy on my mind.

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

Therefore, I pledge to do what I can to combat the agenda of hate and lies demonstrated by the current administration and work towards replacing any and all members of congress who work against the rights of all Americans.

After the incredible show of unity across the world during the 2017 Women’s March, we must not look back, or back down. This is more than a fight for women’s reproductive rights, or a recognition of the racism that people of color endure, or about protecting the safety and well-being of the immigrants and the LGBTQ community, but a fight for the rights of all of humanity. We need to be a symbol of what progressive policies can do for a society.

I know how easy it is to let outrage cloud your judgement and deafen oneself to opposing views. I struggle mightily to maintain an open mind. However, do not let that stop you. Act, react, inform, reform, do something, anything. Do not fall prey to hate. 

If you are white, own your privilege, be conscious of it, be generous of spirit and be kind. Listen without judgement to people’s 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 all move forward.

This does not mean accepting behavior that is incongruent to your values, and morals, but should be in support of this, our pledge…in it’s 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.”

As for the remainder of this website, click around and you’ll find some things to read like former rants, short stories, and poems.
