THE MONTH OF JUNE 2016

…. a very special month of the year ….

RBLine

June is a very special month for the LGBT community.

Foryears, it has been marked as PRIDE month.

Many celebrations take place all over the world.

Parades are here, there and everywhere.

It’s a time when we come together, in the LGBT community, to celebrate our existence, to commune with others like us and with allies.

Per Wikipedia:

Gay pride or LGBT pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.

Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements throughout the world. Pride has lent its name to LGBT-themed organizations, institutes, foundations, book titles, periodicals and even a cable TV station and the Pride Library.

As the month winds down,  we reflect upon our right to exist, our right to be recognized as equal, our right enjoy life to the fullest anad our right to happiness.

A somber note dulled the celebrations this year.

2016 will always be remembered as the year when 49 beautiful souls were suddenly and senselessly taken in Orlando during the Pulse nightclub shooting.

We remain standing and strong in every sense of these words.

We are here to stay.

We all are the same!

FIORINA’S SONG

I must confess that I saw some headlines about Ms. F’s singing but didn’t look any further into it until this morning.

As I was looking through the “net”, I found Randy Rainbow’s version of the song.

I know, I know … politics are crazy this cycle round.

I must share this video.

M’lord, where is their maturity and dignity?

It makes this event worth happening!

Carly Fiorina Just Burst Into Song and It Was the Weirdest Thing

By James West

Wed Apr. 27, 2016

There we were, as a nation, watching Sen. Ted Cruz attempt to gin up some momentum by announcing Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential running mate, Wednesday afternoon. I was a bit bored.

Then this happened….

Stephen Colbert mocked Ted Cruz for selecting Carly Fiorina as his running mate after suffering another round of devastating primary losses.

“That is bold,” Colbert said. “After Tuesday’s huge wins by Clinton and Trump, Bernie Sanders saw the writing on the wall and laid off hundreds of staffers. Meanwhile, Ted Cruz saw the writing and covered it up with a ‘hang in there, baby’ poster.”

The “Late Show” host said Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, was “clearly honored to accept this important job that will never exist.”

He showed video footage of Fiorina professing her love for Cruz’s family, and she broke into several awkward verses of a lullaby about her running mate’s two daughters.

“I know two girls who I just adore,” Fiorina sang from the lectern. “I am so happy I can see them more. Because we travel on the bus on the day, we get to play, we get to play.”

Colbert cringed as he listened and bit his fist in horror.

“It’s like Disney gave the wicked stepmother her own song,” he said.

Thoughts for today, #268 …. “NO to More War”!!


NoWar

~~October 18, 2015~~ 

WAR NO MORE

I can’t imagine the horror of that day

Terror and devastation everywhere

I don’t know what to say

How could you not care?

Fire and ashes fell that day

Cries filled the air

Little children couldn’t find their way

Such horrible things after that white glare

War shouldn’t be the answer

It doesn’t solve a thing

It’s just as deadly as cancer

Let the bells of peace ring

We are all part of the same race

That’s the human race!

Thoughts for today, #207 …. “A Woman’s Worth”!!


Woman

~~August 6, 2015~~ 

A WOMAN’S WORTH

She gave life. She is a wife.
She is a mother and she is a friend.
She is a sister a survivor to the end.

Appreciate her, we don’t dare.
Ask her worries, we don’t care.
Wipe away her tears, they are invisible as air.

She works cooks and clean.
She laughs, helps comfort, and hides her pain.
When you struggle she pulls you through

All this is she and what do we do?

Complain and create a mess.
Provide stress and leave her feeling depressed.
Push her away and ignore her advice.
Tell her she is nothing without thinking twice.

She was raped tortured and abused.
Told she was nothing and would always be used just for pleasure forget her pain.

She swallows her pride, put her feelings aside.
Does as you need in order for you to be free.
Ignores your ignorance and tolerates your flaws.
You call her Bitch, Slut, Hoe and Tramp
She answers with pride dignity and a complete loss of self.
You call her nothing.

I call her Strong, Smart, Sensual, Caring, Giving, Surviving, Tolerant and powerful ….

I call her WOMAN!

Something to think about … “The Office of the POTUS”!!


Disgrace

~~March 6, 2015~~ 

RESPECT FOR THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

“The office of the President, no matter who sits in the oval office, deserves our respect. If we so belittle the office through excessive partisanship we lessen the authority that the office deserves.

The President of the United States is our leader, our chief executive, the person who the rest of the world looks to as representing the United States.

How far do we take partisanship before it becomes demeaning to the office? Is our political system so warped that what is best for the country becomes less important than partisan gain? The phrase the loyal opposition, is important to consider, in that it implies that a person from the opposition party is still loyal to their oath and their nation while still opposing when it is appropriate what the opposition party or in this case the President of the United States has done.

Is anything fair game? Is it okay to lie about them? Is it okay to personally attack the wife of the President or his or her children, or even the dog?

What are the limitations?”

My thoughts on this topic are very personal to me and I understand that all are entitled to their own. I don’t mean for this post to be a political one. 

I was always taught that we needed to “respect the office” of the President of the United States. 

Without bringing politics and different ideologies into this, can anyone really say that this office has been respected since 2008 as is had always been before?

I wonder ….

~~September 10, 2014~~ 

Tomorrow is another anniversary of 9-11

I’ve been watching TV tonight, something I don’t do frequently. I get most of my information through the posts here, in the blogosphere. It’s really interesting how fast news are spread here than through the news channels.

Tonight is a night where I have no words. All I have is raw feelings. 

personal situations

envy, jealousy, hate

education, health, infrastructure

state of many cities in our country

state of our country

domestic violence

society’s values and priorities

fanaticism

state of the world

pollution, waste, lack of,discrimination, persecution, inequality, displacement, abuse, prejudice, ignorance, moral values, inaction, conflicts, wars, killings … you add your own.

A very good friend just told me:

“”We stand for freedom, for justice, for dignity.These are values that have guided our nation since its founding.” Except Here In America. DO NOT ask Americans to fight for foreign freedoms when Americans are NOT free in America.”

“Coming Out Of The Dark”

Why be afraid if I’m not alone
Though life is never easy the rest is unknown
Up to now for me it’s been hands against stone
Spent each and every moment
Searching for what to believe

Coming out of the dark, I finally see the light now
It’s shining on me
Coming out of the dark I know the love that saved me
You’re sharing with me

Starting again is part of the plan
And I’ll be so much stronger holding your hand
Step by step I’ll make it through I know I can
It may not make it easier but I have felt you
Near all the way

Coming out of the dark, i finally see the light now
It’s shining on me
Coming out of the dark I know the love that saved me
You’re sharing with me

Forever, forever I stand on the rock of your love
Forever I’ll stand on the rock
Forever, forever I stand on the rock of your love
Love is all it takes, no matter what we face

Coming out of the dark, i finally see the light now
It’s shining on me
Coming out of the dark I know the love that saved me
You’re sharing with me

To start the day … The Journey!!


~~May 12, 2014~~ 

“Your life is a sacred journey. And it is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way.

You are on the path … exactly where you are meant to be right now … And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love.”

~Caroline Adams~

Change is the only constant in life. Nothing is stagnant. Things change. We need to be flexible enough to adjust!

“Don’t pour a lifetime of effort into a seasonal relationship. Not everyone from the pilot belongs in the finale.” 
~Mandy HaleThe Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass~

“Sometimes in your life you will go on a journey. It will be the longest journey you have ever taken. It is the journey to find yourself.” 
~Katherine Sharp~

“Sometimes a “mistake” can end up being the best decision you ever make.” 
~Mandy HaleThe Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass~

~~Remember~~

…. change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges ….

…. triumph, of healing of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love ….
