Comments…Thoughts…and Questions…

G.I. Jane was a movie about a woman rising to the occasion in a male dominated military…namely the US Navy’s SEAL/C.R.T. program. The program had a standard 60% dropout rate for men…LT. Jordan O’Neill, (Demi Moore’s character) was determined to prove everyone wrong about her passing the program. She succeeds… The joke made was referencing a haircut…not a condition…the movie was a testament to the spirit of women and their ability to overcome adversity and triumph against all odds…The Smiths clearly failed to rise above and made it personal…and costly…to their detriment. Violence is never the answer to displeasure…

Chris Rock emerged with gains, respectability… and as a person who rose above an unnecessarily, volatile situation…it was the bringer of the physical action who belittled himself…. excuses do not equal passage to put hands on another perpetuating physical harm or verbal abuse…Everyday we are all faced with trials of our evolutionary process to rise above that which would pull us down into the depths of self-destructive and caustic behaviors…toward ourselves, as well as others…and we choose…

Save America? Muzzle Trump and the GOP…

Will America ever live up to its name of “United States of America”? Are we headed for that great graveyard of past empires that have crashed and burned into oblivion?

Forgiving…mending…and healing the past…will lead the way to unity…along with restructuring the present political parties to really be the voice of the people…and a nation of democracy.

Staying on course with the present GOP will surely condemn the nation to ruin…their loyalties are not rooted in Democracy…The majority of the Republican party promote poisonous theories and ideals, placing their party above the Constitution…Liberty…and Freedom….as well as real service to their American constituents…on both sides of the political spectrum. They promote division and the hateful doctrines which continue to keep America divided….

We must not walk blindly into harmful principles and voting changes that will render our country a remnant of what it can be again…America, the Beautiful…

Imperialism is slavery…it has no place on American soil…Those Republican Senators that are praising Putin along with a fallen, narcissistic businessman bent on controlling a nation through a passive-aggressive GOP political party…chipping away at American democracy…places our nation nearer to an eve of destruction…

All over the world…we have witnessed that rules are only made to be broken…applicable to some, yet not to others….If we cannot contain and put a stop to the tyrants masquerading as politicians in our own country…how can a tyrant and demonic presence such as Putin be stopped? Others with Putin’s agenda are just waiting in the wings to further wreak havoc and destruction upon unsuspecting populations who are only interested in living a good life in peace…with freedom.

Ukraine is fighting the good fight…they believe in Ukraine….they believe in freedom…and they are dying for that belief and dedication and loyalty…. to democracy and peace…

Those nations in the world…along with America…must stand up to peace and freedom…by fighting alongside Ukraine, in addition to sanctions…we must do more than the impossible….

We must not fool ourselves into believing that this aggression and genocide perpetrated by Putin and his Russia…is not on our doorsteps…it is…and our boots are already in it.

We are faced with the monumental task of literally healing the world…

We cannot afford to fly off the handle in pursuit of the mundane and self-absorbed…trite…chest-beating heroics…

Before life can be lived…

There must come an appreciation for it…

On every level and spectrum of life…

Our purpose…

Is….?

April…A Month of Future Fools and Folly?

Let’s take a deep breath and enter into April…

So much has happened that was not expected or anticipated…After weathering a pandemic for the past two years it was with the greatest hope and excitement that 2022 was welcomed in as a New Year of promise and release from a still hovering, roller coaster virus that is clearly here to stay…and while mandates are being lifted…we may well see surges now and again.

February left the world witnessing War…a war that was started by deception to regain archaic ideals of empire building by Putin and the Russia he has molded by fear, suppression and propaganda.  Make no mistake about it, this is WWIII…While the world has responded by sanctions and remaining neutral as far as physically sending troops to enter Ukraine, the country under siege, people around the world are experiencing the effects…it has been shown to us…how we are all connected by the folly of others…and the response to alleviate and contain the damage caused by unbridled madness and delusion…There will be more physical involvement before this egregious and horrific act of war is contained and brought to closure…

March concludes…as the world is trying to seek some normalcy in the viewing of a celebration of those in the movie industry recognizing those who delivered stellar bodies of creative work… in keeping the world entertained while offering avenues of gratifying escape…there was a shocking display of violence with a slap witnessed around the world…by an actor who took every ounce of wind out of the sails of fans and colleagues alike…in the blink of an eye, negating the entire theme of the evening…celebration…  Overshadowing a historic collection of moments into one dastardly moment which now defines the 94th Academy Awards…

April 1, 2022…Entered as “April Fools Day.”

Let us hope that the month that comes in as a day of fools…does not end up being a month of fools and devastating folly…

Connectivity….

Connectivity…I have talked about it in the past…We are all connected…what we say…what we do…what we think…affects those around us…and those we don’t know…

We would like to think that we live inside our own little bubbles…in our own created corners of the world…We do not…This connection to all came up on the televised around the globe Oscar Ceremony, Sunday, March 27, 2022….

Witnessing the incident of assault upon Chris Rock by Will Smith made me physically ill…it was also described by other celebrities and people who witnessed the assault as making them physically ill as well…

Will Smith’s action reverberated around the world…and touched lives out of his sphere of everyday existence! His action took the life out of the celebration…and took away the light from the auditorium of people who were as well being acknowledged for their historic achievements…which fell to the wayside by an act of violence….

Love does not make us do crazy things…the inability to control emotions…rely upon intelligence…and understanding that it is love that gives us the opportunity to do the right thing…the humility and the insight to rise above any situation that would lead one to act impulsively and create a domino effect by not taking a step back first…and realizing the repercussions…to others…as well as yourself…is an individual act of free-will…

Anyone believing that they are chosen to be an ambassador or vessel of love and peace…should read and study passages from holy books and sages…which gives everyone the abilities to be unconditional in their love of humanity and becoming peacemakers…

“Sticks and stones can break my bones…but words can never hurt me.”

Will Smith was given an example of love from Chris Rock...Chris chose not to press charges…He hasn’t spoken about the incident…and for both men it was a test of spiritual evolution….someone lost…and someone gained….

I would recommend the reading of 1 Corinthians 13, verses 4-8 for Will Smith, his family…and anyone who believes it is their mission to be an example of love and peace…or again, any holy book that teaches the real meaning of Love….

We must understand how we all affect our human family…and the planet we live on…it is alive as well….

We are all connected….

Acts of violence destroy….

Acts of love restores….creates more love….and endures….lighting the world….

What kind of conduit will you be?
