I am especially thankful for my two delightful and devoted daughters, and my charmingly quick-witted grandson, and all the joy they bring to my life.
I am also thankful that women have found their voice in 2017 – for what I hope will be known as the year of reckoning for sexual harassment and hopefully the end of the prevailing rape culture.
You would think Roy Moore and his conservative, evangelical following would give it up – but surprise, surprise – they keep finding outlandish excuses – trying to justify his actions. It’s truly disgusting.
Pastor Benham says that Roy Moore was simply seeking “pure” girls.
I can’t help but wonder how many “pure” girls he thought he was entitled to. I also wonder what he thought those young girls were entitled to? Or didn’t they matter?
Obviously, they did not.
Twisted, perverted mind – #NoMoore
Anyone else worried about the negative Karma the US is creating lately?
It’s not looking good.
- Puerto Rico still in dire need.
- Sick people suffering in silence – without health care.
- Wounded people from the Las Vegas massacre are in financial distress due to health care costs.
- People traumatized by either natural or premeditated tragic events are in need of mental health care.
- Homeless people.
- Increasing numbers of white supremacists.
- Unfair treatment of long term immigrants.
- Unfair treatment of minorities.
- The attempt to legislate religion.
- Superficial patriotism.
The ONLY answer is to start taking care of what matters.
People, and Mother Earth.
Take care of both, and everything else will fall into place.
How do we do it? It starts with love.
Love thy neighbor (and everyone is thy neighbor) as thyself.
This is the best Tweet I’ve seen today:
To flourish on the earth… we have to take care of it and each other.
The Worlds Lesson on Twitter
All the major religions speak the same… always treat others as you would want them to treat your children. Most of them say as you would want them to treat you, but as a parent, I am more moved when I think about how someone will treat one of my own. It carries more weight in my heart.
I am also partial to the Wiccan Rede, which is not included in the graphic above.
Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill, An it harm none do what ye will.
