Paving The Road To The Future…

What we’ve done…Where we’ve been…Where we go from there…will determine the road America paves to the future…

Everyday in America, events of significance take place that will shape the destiny of that road. There are going to be many choices on what materials will be used to build this road…and what we choose to support in policy…to make a road that is a lasting infrastructure into the future.

What takes place in our country on a daily basis isn’t always pleasant or positive…However, it must be addressed because these episodes do affect the lives of every citizen in some shape, form or fashion…Most people will disagree because they believe that they are living in their own carved out corner of the universe, functioning in their own piece of the country within the lives they have created for themselves, and what they say, do and decide is what goes because they are in their own space….

If they remained in their own universe…in their own piece of the country which houses their city or town, inside their own abode, without any human contact outside their dwelling…they still would not be the island that they think isolates them from affecting others with their actions, words and deeds. So, it is important that we are mindful of everything going on around us that can and will affect the growth or demise of our nation…

It is important to know the current events which are going on around us and affecting lives everyday…in America, as well as the world. It is our duty to ensure that the roads we pave are better than the last…and that they are built solidly to lead to better destinations than the roads that have thus been paved, becoming America’s road map to History…

Those roads appear to be leading back to some dark and horrific events in America’s past, and we all have the pen and pencils to construct sound and unfettered blueprints for roadways that will replace the weak and unstable roads that are still being used to plod a way into the future…

We have the opportunities to choose how our country will move forward and what role it will play in influencing the world to become the better vision in embracing and uplifting humanity…by observing, reflecting and acting upon the negatives taking place in our own country…with the complete understanding that there are no “untouchables” in humankind…every action affects innocence somewhere…not only those who are innocent in nature…but those who become victims through unsavory thoughts, words and deeds…from war to gender inequality…and every act of inhumanity being committed around the globe…

In a small way what is written on this blog is written to “ignite your light within” to stir your power without…to be a part of the solution…by becoming aware…and becoming better…in your life…and your purpose…

What the world is…is because of its inhabitants…What America is…is because of its inhabitants…taking part…or not taking part in what it now has become…whatever your view…participation…non-participation…opinions…or no opinions…you are shaping America and the world….

If we want a future…we must pave better…stronger…positive and lasting roads, paying heed to their foundations and infrastructures…and who we allow to build them…

It is time to take up your pencils and pens…your voices…your positive instruments of change which you carry within the heart of you…and make your contribution(s) of betterment to a country and a world calling out to “architects” to pave roads to an ailing humanity and planet…it’s never too late to use your light…to create a future….

Every contribution which uplifts…is a brick in the road…

A simple smile has been known to build roads to joy…

A wonderful beginning….

Pave the road.

The Face of Racism…Mitch McConnell…

The power Racism continues to fuel the fires of division and inequality…

The nation heard it from the Face of Racism a few days ago…Mitch McConnell.

“The concern is misplaced because if you look at the statistics, African American voters are voting in just as high a percentage as Americans.

There it is…

Spoken and broken down like a true Racist.

McConnell has slipped and spoken his true colors on numerous occasions. Most notably through President Obama’s two terms as President of the United States…Along with other members of the Senate and around Capitol Hill who felt the ease of expressing disrespectful and racist sentiments…

He also spoke his true mind during the Trump folly…ever present…with puppy dog loyalty.

When racism presides in the cradle of democracy…there is no democracy.

“Americans” like Mitch McConnell, following his racial and separatist beliefs, continue to perpetuate and feed the lies of the Trump stained presidential farce, while sowing the seeds of division and racial inequality…which will only result in the great fall of America

The Face of Racism has no place in politics and is a cancerous surge on any hope of having an America which will honor claims of “Home of the Brave,” and “Land of the Free.” 

The Face of Racism has no place in America at all…Yet so many welcome it with ease and vigor…fully embracing its hatred…destruction…and imminent obliterating of a nation forever blindly captioned as “great.”

Greatness cannot emerge in a hotbed of Racism and Hatred…which is presently…and has been from its inception, The Face of America.

The world sees America for what she has been made to be…and is…A young country still struggling to define and find its true identity…fractured and confused…pushing democracy to other countries…while democracy is wasted and ignored in its own…

“Home of the Brave?”

Isn’t it really cowardice we are witnessing?

One can continue to lift citizens of America with spirits of dreamy optimism…while the Face of Racism continues to scourge the land and divide these “United States”…or choose the path to scourge Racism…and stand up for Democracy by dissolving these divisive forces already entrenched in those operating on the Hill.

Manchin and Sinema believe they are principled and saving democracy…by aiding to destroy it…soon they will not need to defend their stances…coming events and history will prove them wrong.

Lady Liberty is crying out for leadership with integrity…sadly, her call will never be answered…due to Cowardice

The good and positive accomplishments made in this country are constantly overshadowed and at risk of being overturned and eliminated by the evil, archaic and selfish intentions of the “privileged” Americans threatened by anything and anyone they perceive as a danger to their “protected” way of life…Racism guarantees that “privilege and protection.”

That is when the “Americans” that Mitch McConnell recognizes, becomes an important part of his constituency to keep his style of politics and beliefs viable, by seducing their weaknesses and human condition to secure their votes, where his “ideologies” are kept in tack and functioning full rudder, until his demise…

Dead men tell no tales…they do that while they are alive, and positioned in life…Lying and lies are their lifeline…their social standard and their insurance to always make sure that the truth is never seen or recognized as the Truth…

Every day that we “wake up” from a night’s sleep, does not always wake us up to what is happening around us…How long are we going to stay “asleep?”

Weakness…Cowardice…Sheep being led to slaughter are a matter of choice for Americans of all avenues of diversity…

The greatness of a nation is not the nation…a nation does not exist without people to sustain it…Greatness lives within the hearts of every human being living on this planet.

If they can awaken to and support the liberties and freedoms which ensure unity and community of all humanity…there will be an opportunity for survival of the human race…and successive generations.  The secret is where one will place their greatness…Hatred…or Humanity?  The hope of the future is locked away in the functioning soul of humankind.

To those who insist upon using billions of dollars going into Space?

Those dollars can be put to better use by improving the human condition and the planet upon which you are now inhabiting…you few are in a very unique position to change lives and environments for the betterment and salvation of the people of this world… and this planet.

Leaving unfinished business here while trying to make discoveries to live out in Space, leaves those future planets in grave danger of becoming divided and destroyed as is what’s happening here and now…on every habitable continent…

And as long as The Face of Racism is America’s “Poster Boy,” the rest of the world will watch and take up safeguards to keep to keep America and her display of “democracy” at arm’s length…

No one will survive a “pandemic” of Racism.

The Face of Racism will fall…

Mitch McConnell…

God will not be mocked…

Nor will those who have awakened…

To the Truth….

We Dream the Dream…Let’s Make it Happen…For Everyone….

Today is the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday…

I want to reflect on an article I was sent back in 1999, when putting together a list of charities to benefit from a concert that was being prepared to move into the 21st Century…This was one of the charities…Oxfam America…

“Many believe blacks must participate in the structure of American capitalism in order to prosper as individuals and communities.  Ownership, the bedrock of American society and measure of success, makes citizens free to master their own destinies.  Ownership brings leverage in American economic life and, subsequently, social and political spheres.  Lack of ownership, many believe, has kept blacks and minorities in an inferior social position in which financial resources are squandered to maintain the success of already powerful whites.”

–Laura K. Warrell, Oxfam America Viewpoint, spring 1999, Cover Story, “Does Restitution for Black Farmers Equal Justice”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed and spoke upon equality for Black Americans economically, as a key factor in achieving racial equality, and spoke upon it in many of his speeches on the long road to establishing Civil Rights for Americans of African ancestry…decades before organizations like Oxfam took up the journey to solidify processes and progress in this still long, long road to racial equality…

Where are we in education…housing…jobs…equal pay…civil rights…freedom…the American Dream…Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Dream?

When you look at America today…do you see progress or a train running backwards down a hill… headed for certain destruction? Do you see hope for a brighter future? Or positive changes unraveling and being taken apart…taking a country back to savage beginnings it takes pride in clinging to?

How can we…honor the best of ourselves…by implementing that best into the fabric of a nation torn and tattered by division and despair? How can we ensure the promise of America, when days like today come…and remind us what living and living in America…and the world, is really all about?

Take today and remember…take today and what it really means to dream a dream of peace…unity…humanhood…community…liberty…freedom…and make it your reality to create a world that can continue to achieve and sustain the better part of humanity’s contributions in ensuring a future for generations…

I have a dream…

That we will wake up…create the dream…and live it….

The Needs of the Many Outweigh the Wants of the Few…

Bravo to Martina Navratilova! She told Australian television that Novak Djokovic needed to “suck it up” and return home. She went on to say, “The bottom line is, sometimes your personal beliefs have to be trumped by what’s good for the greater good, for those around you, for your peers.” You have two choices, get vaccinated or just don’t go play.”

Absolutely! He would be supporting his personal beliefs by just going home. Yet, he insists on infringing upon the rights of the Australian government to protect their country against a ravaging surge of Covid-19, by allowing him in, against their protocols. Djokovic has been infected with Covid-19, and is a potential carrier, who is against getting vaccinated….Truly his right…but not his right to force accepting him into the country because of his number one status in the Tennis world. His ego cannot protect others he may likely infect if he is allowed to stay and play… Being responsible is what gains respect and admiration…not playing games where you will come into contact with others, and possible cause unnecessary illness…and possibly death. No win…or award…or title, is above human life…Djokovic should know this…respect the Australian government, their citizens…and himself, and make a choice.

He has apparently, and expect others to go against their beliefs…for him.

Clay feet and small minds do not make heroes…

Go home, Djokovic…

The needs of the many outweigh the “wants” of the few…

Stirring up the few, in support of your belief is lead by emotions…not by logic.

“That is wise. In any case, were I to invoke logic, logic clearly dictates the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” -Spock, in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Continuing to cave in and abandon what is right by catering to the needs of the few… with selfish intent…will continue to ensure that the future of the next generations will come to a close at this century’s end…maybe sooner.

Stand your ground, Australia…

Maybe it will rub off on your cousin…America….

January 6, 2021…The Day Democracy Died…With “Greatness”…

There are always comments made about America being the “Greatest country in the world.” What is this country great for?

On January 6, 2021…came an answer.

Great is defined as “Of an extent, amount, or intensity considerably above the normal or average.”

On January 6, 2021…The Capitol of our country was stormed and desecrated…with a chilling display of “great.”

The level of violence, destruction, and disregard of life and country…was of an extent, amount and intensity, considerably above the normal or average… defiling… with complete disregard for our democracy.

Freedom of Speech is one thing….acting upon misinformation that creates insurrection and complete disrespect to a system–although imperfect–that had kept America in check…was treasonous…a death blow to Democracy…Where does that leave America?

The division between the parties…and the continuing battles to wrestle power to one side of the aisle over the other…and the continued engagement and promoting of the “Big Lie” by the “elephant clan” has destroyed Democracy…Just as Covid-19 is cleaning house against the world population…factions that took oaths to protect our country against its enemies…haven’t yet realized that they are the enemies…and they are cleaning house on the American population….with some help and assistance…from a great part of the American population!

“Unity” is nothing more than a five lettered word…without substance or meaning. Certain people are still entrenched in the “Me-Me-Me” club…and they are still in operation on The Hill….

Meanwhile…our country is going down for the third time in a grand state of confusion…from Covid-19, to party politics…the saddest part…the whole world is watching…real “greatness.”

January 6, 2021…The Day Democracy Died…with “Greatness.”

January 6, 2022…take a moment to recollect…and decide…Can we rise from the ashes?

Let the people decide…

How much do you love your country… Do you love it enough to support and give meaning to…and back “Unity?” Having and defending your rights…does not mean doing, supporting and engaging in wrong.

Revive Democracy by cleaning house on The Hill… Don’t fall victim to “Red or Blue…” Have ears to hear and eyes to see….

Guard…protect and defend…your voice…

Once you let them gain control of your voice…you will be silenced…

Your Vote…is your Voice…

Take heed…they have already initiated the Process of Silence

“We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the universe. That makes us something very special.” –Stephen Hawking

The universe…right here…right now…is America… A minor country…in an average world.

Choose to be something very special…

Look into the hearts of those you choose…that will reveal the Truth…

The truth of them…

And the truth… of you….

Joe Biden…Pick Up Your Pen and Perform A Christmas Miracle…

It would be a miracle if the American people can actually believe in anyone who promises to make life livable…if we would elect them President of the United States…

We have been electing politicians who have been recycling promises and re-gifting the proverbial “fruitcake” for so long…that we’ve grown to accept the repetitive song and dance…

Joe Biden is no different…He is after all a “career” politician. It was everyone’s wish that he would be different…different in the way that he would really be for the people and truly fight for the things that would give every American a hand up receiving a genuine opportunity at having and achieving a life of quality in a country that so proudly boasts about being the best in the world….

Strength is not measured in words…but in actions.

There is one thing that can be done which will give millions of Americans a hand up and boost our economy at the same time…Homes can be purchased…savings can be had…futures can be certain… If only the President had the courage and the foresight to do the right thing….and deliver a deed which will set him apart from the redundant crowd he clings so loyally to…

We gave Joe Biden his dream…

It’s time he stepped up to the plate and start demonstrating to the American people that he can move mountains…

Joe Biden…Pick Up Your Pen and Perform a Christmas Miracle…

Your first Christmas Miracle…

Wipe OUT Student Loan Debt.

Mr. President…

It is solely within your power to do so….Yours and yours alone. You don’t need the House or the Senate…just pick up your pen and make it happen. You know you can…You can legally cancel as much as $50,000 in federal student loans…You don’t need your your education secretary to prep a memo…that’s just a formality…You already know that you can…but you won’t…because you’re a career politician…and politics come before people…isn’t that right?

Pass the fruitcake….

Merry Christmas, America.

The Monotony of Madness…

Here we are…the 11th month of the year…one month away from the close of another twelve months. Where are we? Step away from your life for one moment and ponder the thought, “Where are we?” How far has America progressed in the course of this year? Have we made any strides toward unifying the ocean of divide that runs through the cracks, fissures and gorges left behind by those sworn to rebuild and revitalize a country still riddled by the monotony of madness they created and continue to cultivate?

It is crucial that our structure of government and politicians past and present be carefully and meticulously scrutinized and held to accountability…unless their monotony of madness has become the American way of life, and living marginally is acceptable!

Late night hosts make jokes…

People are caught up in rebellion and protests about their “rights”…while Covid continues to find them…and lay “their rights” to rest…permanently.

The surge of weather changes which people in denial continue to relay as “normal changes which occur every 100 years” are swept away by floods, waves, fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and other dire demonstrations of nature…caused by man’s interference…resulting in climate change…which is well on it’s way to restructuring the planet…and human life.

Where does that leave us?

Stuck…in the Monotony of Madness….

October is Here…Now What?

We have entered the tenth month much the same as the last nine…Covid-19 statistics and push-back dramas…immigration fiascos…turning back the clock on personal freedoms…climate change eruptions making it clear that climate change IS here and making bold statements in weather delivery to reach those still in denial of environmental damage brought on by humankind’s ignorance in preserving and caring for the planet that sustains us…and due to such ignorance…may not be able to sustain us in the decades to come…

Political infighting which in itself is the foremost danger to the survival of democracy and the beloved dream of a free America…And while we are all trying our best to support…respect…and reach out to those in need…we are well below the standard of raising our compassion to the level of at least 50% in this country…let alone, around the globe.

Another year about to pass and leave us with…What? Dare we say…more human chaos? Or can we say maybe a slight improvement over last year?

We must open our eyes and our hearts with the recognition and knowledge that life will never be the same as it was at the beginning of 2019…or 1999…We must move forward and weather the storms that are materializing in our path of humanity with unity and vision toward improving upon the human condition…and include plans to immediately implement change to prevent any further damage to our environment…this is the only way to ensuring a path forward for our moment of now…and future generations…some of which are here now…and fighting to secure a future for themselves and their children…and their children’s children.

We can no longer afford to indulge in the nonsense and nonsense of those who are destroying and making a mockery of our nation…through the ineptitude of what is coming from political parties…both Blue and Red, and in between…leaving the American people as well as Allies of our country, caught in the middle, and viewed as nothing more than expendable, collateral damage… Those factions who swore allegiance to upholding the integrity and the Constitution of the United States of America…

The only terrorists we have to fear at present are those who are in constant battle tearing our country apart…upon Capitol Hill….A true democracy does not use its power to “best” and tear down opposite beliefs of its constituency…it works to find compromise to best preserve and build continuity of unity…strengthened by the body of core beliefs upon which freedom is guaranteed and supported…Instead, we are delivered constantly into the pit of division…and chaos.

At this pace…the only change that will come is a country wrought with such fracture and division…nothing will prevent it from ultimately falling apart….

The only masks that need to come off right here and right now are the masks of denial and delusion.

October is Here…

Now What?

Now we stop pretending…

We stop holding back…

We start caring…

We start rebuilding…

We start unifying…

We take a second look at who we the people let run our country…on all sides of the political spectrum…and honestly take a look at where you are because of it…and where you are headed because of it…don’t take sides…take heart…take objectivity…and stop to honestly evaluate where your life will be in two months….six months…a year…is it acceptable to you? To your families? To a better America? A better world?

Take a good long look…

Look hard…

Life is not ever going to go back to where it was…

The time is here to make a change to guarantee a future…

What Now?

That answer rests with all of us….

Remembering The Unity of 9/11….

Every year for 20 years we remember the horrors and tragedy of September 11, 2001…

When terrorists desecrated U.S. soil and unleashed the unimaginable and the unthinkable…the cost of civilian and service men and women lives was staggering…and still continues in the aftermath due to exposures to the fallout and trauma of that day. It changed the emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual landscape of our country…forever.

As a nation, we became our best at our worst…We harnessed a unity that extended to every corner of our wounded America…and we witnessed a strength in that connectivity that was impenetrable.

That “impenetrable connectivity” should always be remembered…and practiced at every turn… We need that unity now more than ever!

We must remember…for all of those we lost that day…their sacrifice must always be our fuel to come together for the good of all…They gave their lives…consciously and unconsciously, so America could continue to be…Free.

Remember that the next time someone breaks from that unity…and attempts to initiate actions that may result in the loss of freedom for another…will you “connect” or “disconnect?”

If those passengers on Flight 93 chose to disconnect, do you dare to think what magnitude of damage and loss and change to our history that would have occurred…had those terrorists succeeded in reaching their designated target? They sacrificed their lives for their belief in America…and their love for our country.

We must never forget the beautiful demonstration of unity…

We must never forget the sacrifices…

We must always remember and practice being our best…whatever “worse” arises…

9/11 will forever be our badge of courage to move forward the dreams and freedom of America…

Start today……

To Love…Is To Find.

To Love

Is to find…

For Love is pure…

It does not hide.

To bare one’s soul

Is to be alone…

For Honesty

Is a large pill to shallow…

To Be

Is to first exist…

How can we?

If we do not Love….

We must find love…it is our only salvation. If we continue to embrace what is shallow…materialistic and fleeting…we will not prevail and humanity will cease to be.

America…

It is crucial that we understand the importance of what this country should stand for…it is of high importance that we understand our connectivity and what it means to be guardians…shepherds…preservers…and respecters of life…in respecting life we respect the freedom of others…without impositions of our will…yet, this is a double-edged sword…because in respecting others we must be inclusive, open to all views…yet find the common ground of compromise…

If we understand what love is…and find the road to love…we will unite our country…as well as ourselves… Eventually…our world.

To Love…

Is to Find…

For Love is Pure…

It does not hide…

If you believe in Love…You won’t need to look far to find it…

Open your heart…..
