Today is a very sad day because of the Las Vegas tragedy. I just don’t know what is going on with the world. The gunman apparently had no mental issues or wasn’t affiliated with any religious group that we know of. He was a normal guy from what the news tells us. Yet he fired on thousands of people, killing some and wounding others. I am just totally confused and don’t get it. I don’t get why someone would do this to people. Why? This makes me doubt my fellow man sometimes. Was he depressed? Could this have been prevented? Prayers to all the families involved. I hope I don’t hear anything worse in the morning. Good night.
9/11/2001 was a very difficult day for us as a country. What happened should never have happened to anyone. It was an example of hatred and what hatred can do to others. I know we will never be able to stop hatred in this world. But I pray that people see through differences and see our similarities. If terrorism and hatred is what you want to leave in this world, think again, America will always fight back till the last breath.
This has been on my mind for a long while. Since before the Charlottesville attacks. I’m just going to go ahead and say it, ‘I’m sick of racism and hatred being spread through our country.’ But people might mistake me for a racist at times. I don’t like to narrow down on races. Like if there is a ‘Black Lives Matter’ rally, yes they do, but why can’t it be ‘All Lives Matter’ rally instead. I have my right to my opinion okay. I’m not trying to say that black people don’t deserve to have rallies and such, but we as a country need to come together and focus not on race or the color of our skins, but on love and the persons within. We need to focus on forcing out the hate within the country that has been buried so deep in it. I found a website called Southern Poverty Law Center. The link lead you to some information about some extremist groups. I just thought that overall it is a really interesting site and it helps in combating hate. But that is my thoughts for now. Talk soon.
It’s been a busy day for me in several ways. I cooked supper, which I haven’t done for a while. I followed a recipe from a Weight Watchers book. Mom, Dad, and I are watching our food intake. So we decided to try this Chinese Noodle Soup. It was really good. It had ginger, cabbage, chicken broth, carrots, pork, udon noodles (my idea, it was supposed to have italian thin noodles), green onions, and spinach. It was really good. The udon noodles I got from a package. They weren’t dry. However, you can find them in an isle. I’ll try to get the recipe and post it on this or my Change for a life blog.
Besides that, I watched the Kentucky Derby. Loved watching it. I’m hoping to go to it next year. It’s something I have been wanting to do with my parents before they die and myself of course. I loved the hats and the funny suits. I just was so impatient that they waited so long to play My Old Kentucky Home (think that’s the right song). I loved it though.
I did delete my twitter account and created a new facebook account by the way. Just to let you know.
Well, I don’t know about you, but today was not my favorite day. I’m not exactly happy that Trump was elected and that he is our president, but I am not going to try to get him kicked out just yet. He hasn’t done anything yet to deserve that. I’m still not with the wall idea, but I do want to give him a chance. Let’s see what he can do before we try impeaching him. We might find that he does bring a change to America that has been needed for a long time. I’m not judging him yet. So we’ll see. That’s my thoughts.
Okay, if you like or have voted for Donald Trump, you may not want to read this. I watched the news this morning and Donald wants to build the wall around the border of Mexico. Don’t get me wrong, I think we need more protection to block illegal immigrants from getting into America. If you want to get into America, do it the right way. However, Donald would be using a lot of money to be building a wall we don’t need. And that money could go to good uses. There are so many programs that could benefit and so many that need it. However, he is still focused on his damned wall! It just pisses me off! If you’re going to ‘make America great again’ start with America! Not Mexico! That’s all I have to say for now. Talk soon.
There just seems to be so much going on in our lives lately. Carrie Fisher died and now her mother Debbie Reynolds died. 2016 has taken so much from us. So many actors and actresses, musicians, and others. I am hoping that 2017 will be a better year for us and that we will not lose so many good people like this year. It seems that this year has been beating us up.
Well besides the bad news, has anyone made their New Years Resolutions yet? I have not. I am considering starting a weight loss blog because I am going to start the Paleo Diet in January and need something that will help me keep track of my progress and other things. I’m not sure if I will or not. Just a thought. I still got two days to come up with mine. Anyway, I better get off. My nephew will be here soon. Talk later.
