Every day we wake up go to work, or stay home, or go to school, we run errands, stress over deadlines that have to be met, wonder if we are doing enough to make a change in this crazy world we find our selfs living in, eventually, go to bed, get up in the morning rinse, repeat.
I wish life were as simple and mundane as described in the paragraph above, but its not. Currently in the US we have a president who only 30 percent of the of the country approves of, he cares more about the crowds he draws then the negative impact he is making on this country. There are wild fires in Canada, have been in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and California, Texas, and Louisiana are having historic flooding all thanks to a weather phenomenon known as Harvey.
School shootings and shootings in general seem to be a daily, if not weekly occurrence and we all say “Something needs to be done” but we all (my self included) just sit by and wait for some one else to do something, Meanwhile I get regular e-mails from a mom who I should not be getting e-mails from, her son was one of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting that happened 5 years ago, her son died, he was in the first grade, and instead of wallowing in her own self pity she started the Sand Hook Promise (You can learn more about her charity and what she is doing to put an end to gun violence in schools here www.sandyhookpromise.org)
Earlier this evening I watched, with heart break as Jillian Harris (from Love It Or List It Too(Vancouver) The Bachelorette, Extreme Make Over: Home Edition and The Bachelor) talked about getting attacked on social media about not caring about Houston. Let me tell you, Jill is perhaps one of the most compassionate, empathetic ready to help in anyway she can, people I have ever “Met” so for someone to say that……. I have no words, Jill and her family (Fiance Justin, son Leo and Dog Nacho) where in Seattle over the weekend, they just got home Monday night, she had not watched any news, no news paper no social media, what this long rambling paragraph is getting at is, before you judge, ask, before you comment.
I really had no planned direction or theme for this blog, I just wanted to get some stuff off my chest.
