TRIUMPH OVER BULLIES
BEAUTIFUL THINGS ARE STILL HAPPENING OUT THERE
Events and happenings like this keep me going.
Amanda came from the Dominican Republic with her parents at an early age.
As a family, they made it through!
Music helped her … and she made it to this national stage.
Enjoy her performance!!
Amanda Mena, a 15-year-old who had been bullied at school for not knowing English as a child, soared on Tuesday night’s, June 19, “America’s Got Talent.”
Mena belted a version of Aretha Franklin’s classic “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” that brought the house down and left the celebrity judges searching for words.
“My gosh, where do I start? That was just incredible,” said judge Mel B. “I got goose pimples all over. I love you, I love your voice, and this is what I’m going to say to all those bullies.”
Mel B then pressed the show’s Golden Buzzer, sending Mena directly on to the show’s live rounds.
“Do you know what you have, Amanda?” asked judge Simon Cowell.
“You have genuinely natural soul. You really, really do. I mean, that’s not an easy song to sing. This is an audition we’re going to remember for a long time, Amanda.”

“As Lincoln said of slavery, so we should also say about undocumented immigrants. Both sides are guilty of not helping enough. Don’t make children pawns in a political game. Put aside politics and stop blaming. Just help.” … isn’t this the American way?
For years I was a proud conservative Republican. Today’s Republican Party has lost its way and has not done the business of the people. Today’s GOP is not the GOP I grew up with, they are a black stain on our Republic.
Approximately one year ago I left the Republican party and registered as an Independent. From many discussions and research, I’ve done I’ve come to realize that I’m fiscally a conservative but in most other areas I’m a moderate. I’m a strong believer in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
I took an oath many years ago to protect and defend our Constitution and no one has ever relieved me of that oath. I take my duty as an American citizen seriously. I’m also a supporter of the Convention of States movement going on to call for a Constitutional Convention. Seeing as the Congress refuses to do the will…

My dearest friend … I share your foul ‘mood’ …
‘Everything in the news annoys and there is seemingly no such thing as ‘good’ news this week. And so, here is my roundup of Snarky Snippets with a bit more snark than usual.’
As I write this on Thursday night, I am in a foul humour. Everything in the news annoys and there is seemingly no such thing as ‘good’ news this week. And so, here is my roundup of Snarky Snippets with a bit more snark than usual.
The Ultimate Hypocrisy …
Wednesday, 20 June was World Refugee Day, an international event designed to draw attention to the global refugee crisis. There could be no possible appropriate response by the United States, under the current circumstances, and silence would have been the best option. But this is the era of Trump and silence is never an option, so Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued the following statement … a study in hypocrisy …
It is one thing to be a bastard, another to keep reminding the world.
The Party’s Over …
The annual Congressional picnic was scheduled for yesterday on the White…

‘ I’m standing here, 500 miles north of the Upbring New Hope Children’s Detention Center in McAllen, TX, and a few hours from the border.’ … Amazing thoughts … so very well written!!
I wonder where America’s heart has gone … did it ever have one?
Wednesday. 4:05 am. Pre-Dawn.
It’s sticky, the air is heavy, rain showers are imminent.
I’m walking from an outbuilding to the lobby to pick up an Uber to the Dallas-Fort Worth airport. I’m on the first flight back to New York.
Two bodies are framed in their silhouettes. They stand under a street lamp filling a work cart with garden tools. They stop talking, watch me approach and offer a “Good morning Sir” with full smiles and broken English.
Of Mexican origin.
I approach the front desk. Martina is the tag on her lapel. “How was your stay Sir?” She doesn’t break eye contact. Customer Service coach whispering in her ear during orientation, be confident, you belong.
Of Haitian or DR origin.
