PAST…

She sat alone on a school sidewalk, watching the other children running and playing and talking to one another, she most certainly did not feel like a part of this whole school playground thing.

ABOUT HER…

From near speaking age she would try to ask valuable questions to learn the answers to. Things like, “How many quarters make a dollar?” or things like, “Why do birds have feathers?”. She was always curious and sometimes that drove her parents and those around her mad. One person once told her it was okay to ask questions, they said, If you don’t ask questions, you will never know the answers.” So ask questions she did.

She was the kind of child that would spend hours outside playing and imagining about things her eyes had not yet seen. She thought to herself often, just because she had not actually seen it, did not mean it did not exist. See that is where her imagination took over and inside her mind she felt sure of what she was imagining, as if to be true. I suppose all kids do that in one form or another, it is just the kid like way of things. She most certainly had that way down pat.

Although she never really did incredible things or the best of things, she did what she did with a heart of gold. She always befriended the lonely kids and she never thought more or less of a person  in regards of their choices or clothes, or circumstances. She really genuinely loved so much, back then. To her, everyone was on the same page, the same platform, and the same level. It wasn’t until she reached middle school age, that she saw how that was totally naïve. For her younger years though, she stayed quite happy.

ONE DAY…

There was a  television show that came on once a week it was called Bewitched, https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057733. She would run inside from having been at school and watch this television program.  It starred a witch named Samantha and she could wiggle her nose or twitch her ear and things would happen. What a concept! Now this little girl would most certainly know how to do those things if she wanted to. Why not? This show had her mesmerized and she certainly watched it with great intent and attention. This television program was so funny and it was good to see how the good witch always won. Despite the numerous efforts of her mother-in-law’s attempts to foil her day, she always came out on top. This inspired the little girl.

Once while at school and during recess she decided to practice in doing witch things. Of course, this was stuff from her television show, and she was able to do all that, right? She proceeded to twitch her nose and speak a command, which usually was something like, “walk over here, now”, or “sit down”, you know easy stuff, at least until she got better at her witch stuff. Here she was pretending to do this witch stuff and she caught the attention of one of the other kids outside, They came up to her and asked her what she was doing. Needles to say this drew the attention of more kids. Before long there was a group of kids following her as she taught then how to practice to be a witch, a good witch, like Samantha on Bewitched. If you could have seen the joy in her eyes as she felt so special, special enough that others wanted to be jus like her. It was one of her best school playground days. It also wasn’t long before things started to seem to be working out. She now not only felt like a part of the school playground thing, she practically ran it!

To be continue…

It is certainly true, that everyone sees things different from one another.

Sometimes what is not important to one, doesn’t mean it isn’t to another.

I certainly have realized this more and more as I grow older. I feel sometimes we fail as humans, because we cannot put ourselves in another’s shoes. We cannot share a space or place, let alone the same planet without taking into effect another person is here as well. Sure, we have our own cars, houses, possessions, etc. but we are sharing this world.

Kindness goes a long way and it trickles into every aspect of our lives and places we go. Trying to keep in mind another’s feelings, wants and needs are what it takes to live in harmony and peace.

I feel like we also fail to see we are surrounded by nature, as well. There are animals here too. Our world’s animals are being mistreated as well. I hear of terrible things people do to them all the time. They live here too and should have certain respect.

Just reminding myself, and those who live here to of the way to treat others. Their lives matter as much as ours. Be it a person or an animal.

I say, ” Show love and empathy, and it will come to you!”

Peace, and thanks for reading!

Happy Birthday America!

Yes, I live in America, land of the free and home of the brave, as the Star Spangled Banner song says.

http://www.metrolyrics.com/the-star-spangled-banner-lyrics-the-national-anthem-of-the-united-states-of-america.html

We are 241 years old. Everywhere across the United States people are gathering in their homes, at parks, and anywhere they can to celebrate.

I think though, a lot of people have no real idea what we stand for. Sometimes I think that there is not enough pride in our heritage or its core values. We were founded as a nation under God and with rights that cover a whole multitude of principles and people and beliefs. In America we are supposed to stand for justice and liberty to all, but sadly I see us tearing ourselves apart. I see people being discriminated against, people’s rights being taken away, and our moral system vanishing. No, I am not saying this is abundant every single place in America, but it is prevalent. I see us tearing down the very heart of who we should actually be and what we should stand for.

Don’t get me wrong, I love America, and believe it to be one of the best places in the world. Yet, I am not under a false sense that says we are doing everything right. Anymore I see people afraid to go to public events, afraid to speak out against things that are wrong, and people who would rather bend to every one and everything just to keep from conflict and maintain peace. I see in some accounts people who feel ostracized and manipulated and those who fear being their selves.

I wish our nation was always pleasant and kind, never wavering in the fundamentals and basic rules of humanity but less face it, that is not the world we are now living in. Instead we find ourselves losing that in our daily lives. We need to go back to our beginnings and learn from past mistakes. We do not need to conform to the changing times but stay strong in the midst of it. Just my perspective. I just want my children, grandchildren to know the great America we can be.

Despite all the things that are wrong or going in the wrong direction, we still genuinely care for people and we still love our country. We still help our neighbors and come together when a community is devastated or has been attacked. WE still  pray and worship as we see fit and we are genuinely resourceful and proud. We are thankful and we for the most part contribute back to our nation.  In spite of the turmoil, we generally seek peace. WE rise when we should and we don’t retreat. I love my country, I love its roots, its people and the fact we started as a God-fearing country. I applaud our efforts toward peace and our advances in our medical, scientific and military efforts.

We are not superior in this world of many nations, but we certainly should be proud.

Happy Birthday America! I salute you, which by the way is my right, living here in America.  A lot of people have sacrificed and defended our nation. I believe we can make America a safe and good place for all.
