“Life as we know it”

31 Oct

Good Afternoon my friends!

I have been reading all sorts of Posts, Blogs, reading all kinds of publicize articles by many different writers and found some things that were interesting  as well as a few disturbing ones…for example and to begin…this morning…lol…my fellow writers/Authors…if you are going to publish the news…make sure that you be very careful about the WARNING!!!signs you send out…and read your work at least 3 times before you post it…I reside it in my head when I write it to make sure I don’t make a mistake or sound stupid, I mean it makes total sense to me…don’t you think…

I will like to start by saying…I have a lot of respect for all my fellow writers, including the ones with the passion for writing the truth about life.

Now moving along…I will like to discuss a subject regarding the Hufftington Post.  A certain someone, send out a message this morning which shocked a few people including me and had a some of us shaking our heads…I must say…based on majority of the answers from the people who responded to the said post, I have not seen as many people coming together in one place, like I did this morning…The “ignorance” (and I apologize but I have to say it was) on that said post, had a reaction that impacted a lot of people…including me…and people united with their comments, even though the attack of some of the commentators were sort of ugly towards the writer…now that was to be expected when you write something so idiotic without choosing your words…also based on the fact that racism was used…now that’s a huge “You don’t go there”… if you looked at the picture closely the character did not look black, I must agree she looked orange, sort of like an um-pa lumpa from “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory”…lol, (please take no offense)…and as many people mention this is Halloween and dressing up is a fun thing for many people. I remember when I used to dress-up like wonder-woman as a child and I hardly was able to breath underneath those plastic mask, damn nose wholes were so small…I remember running into the walls could not even see my way around…My cousin pulled the mask away from my face at one point and the rubber band holding the mask together smacked my face so hard I had a nose bleed…those days were fun… I am sure no harm was intended…then again…That was “Life as we know it” once we collected our candy…the mask was off… I went out and played with my lemon twist…times have changed…does anyone remember the click clacks clackers? those were the best in the 70’s they hurt like hell, but were fun to play with. any ways moving along.

Life as we know it has changed a lot…everything is different these days…We strive to survive in a world that only concentrates on changing everything we once believed in, so many rules have been put out there…yet crime still exist and it continues to grow everyday…as the years pass, we hope to see changes in society, instead what we get is more difficulty in the way we live.  Our people are struggling to stay alive, to put food on the table, some can’t even afford to pay the bills…How many people anticipate every year to get their income tax checks just to go on a vacation with their families…I bet there’s a few out there…how many hope they can go on vacation but just cant or haven’t had the opportunity for a while because they are still managing to live on a paycheck to paycheck?

The prices and cost of living have become more extreme, making it more difficult for people to survive. Jobs are hard to find, yes there are job fairs and opportunities open for many who may qualify, but what about those whose applications never get a call back? this is one of the reasons why some people are forced to apply for government funds because they have no way to support their families…what would happened to them if they lost their benefits and can’t feed their children? would they get a job then? can they be promised that?

Our politicians worry about being elected…we as the people know we have the right to a “VOTE” what some of the people don’t know is that we have the “POWER” they need…without us there is no power because there is no vote, no vote means no election, no elections means no congress, no congress means no government…YES, I went there…Why? because “Life as we know it” is changing, due to politics.

We need politics to keep things in place…but what we don’t need is chaos…we have enough to deal with in our lives to continue turning the channels because the News are too chaotic to watch these days, I rather watch movies without commercials or just turn the TV set off rather than to hear the News, there is too much drama going on…too much more than before, then they say (its going down…look at the numbers, the rates this year are lower than the last) on what? crime? poverty?homelessness?child abuse? domestic violence? gun violence? Hit and runs? animal abuse? kidnapping? budget cuts? rape? so much more… What Congress needs to know is that the people is honest enough to stand on line on election day and regardless of who they trust to place their Vote for, they do it because they Believe in their word…We Vote because we Believe that you can make it happen if we have you elected and place you in that beautiful white house…We trust you…Weather you win or loose, whose ever team you’re in we still sit there waiting and anticipating to see who gets elected, and hope that we see good changes for the benefit of all human kind…

Today I saw people come together and I don’t know if they even noticed, I didn’t have a chance to read more of their comments but read at least 235 of them around 7:05 am all in regards of a comment made by a writer, if a few people came together like this for one comment made…can you only imagine what an entire Nation do if we put our heads together and made changes in this world we all share and love.  We can make wonderful things happen…

Just saying…

Well everyone this is all I have to say for now…You are all welcome to leave a comment…I hope I didn’t offend anyone, I only write what I feel, and this is who I am…

For those who know me…this is “Life as we know it” we can only hope to change what we can with ourselves, and remember we can take a horse to the river but we cannot make him drink…and like I posted for my kids earlier…. when they grow up and have their own house, I can’t wait to go and visit so I can break their stuff, eat all their food, make a big mess, watch their cable and then say It’s boring here I’m going home…and that my friends is life as we know it…
