THE PIANO GUYS AND ME

Those who have followed this blog must be aware that I have always been an ardent fan of The Piano Guys and their awesome music.

I have blogged plenty about them.

I have all their CDs. I have their sheet music.

I have some of their merchandise.

‘We haven’t changed who we are, what we stand for, or what our music means and why we write it.’

Yes, you have changed!

You have normalized something that is totally and completely wrong!

I’ve read your full statement. I respect your reasons and your decision. However, I can no longer follow you. I’ve enjoyed your music! I’ve been thrilled by your videos. I have shared all knowledge I posses about you. I’ve been on of your most ardent fans. In spite of your reasons, I’m very disappointed that you have decided to participate. It’s a real sad decision for me to ‘disconnect’ from you and your music.
Your music, your beliefs … are so elevated.

I really am very saddened by your decision.

“It brought tears to my eyes.”

Therefore, we part ways today!

The Piano Guys
Last night as I was kissing my daughter good night she asked me in an innocent, but tentative tone, “Daddy, why are people mad at you?

It brought tears to my eyes.

I told her that I wish I could gather up everyone angry with the Piano Guys one by one and talk with them face to face. Hear their story. Empathize with their concerns, and mourn together so we could comfort each other. We, too, are distraught and despondent over how divisive this chapter in our nation’s politics has been. We, too, want what’s best for everyone in this country. Those of you who know us, know we grew up as “nerdy” musicians and we experienced bullying firsthand.

We abhor and decry bullying.

You know that we honor our relationships with our spouses more than anything else. You know we believe women are Divinely appointed to not only equality, but also respect and chivalrous deference. You know that in our history our ancestors were refugees, driven from their homes in fear for their lives. We emphatically embrace those now in the same situation. You know we believe in loving all people, regardless of gender, race, political affiliation, country of origin, or religious background.

You know we believe that differences are meant to be celebrated, not calculated.

If you know our music, you know that we painstakingly, prayerfully write and perform it with the intention to give it the greatest potential to lift others and break down barriers, not build them.

Many have asked why we are performing at the Inauguration.

To our friends who have felt disturbed by our involvement, we want you to know that this doesn’t lessen our gratitude for what you have done for us. Not one bit. We still feel indebted to you. We love you. You give our music wings! We sincerely hope and pray for your understanding. We don’t feel right limiting our positive message only to people that believe or act the same way we do. We haven’t changed our message. We haven’t changed who we are, what we stand for, or what our music means and why we write it. We’re still doing what we’ve always done – playing for anyone who will hear our musical message with the hope that it persuades its listeners to love others.

I want to share as we look at the nunmbers listed above.

The mandate for governing isn’t his … it’s hers.

No You Can’t : Why I’m Still Crying Over Hillary Clinton’s Loss

Eirene Donohue

I thought I had it together. I thought I was moving on, “getting over it” as the world kept telling me to. She lost, he won. The only thing we can do is keep fighting. We are seeds, we are safety pins, we are stronger together.

The realization hitting me.

~I  AM HER~

And here was the root of my pain. This wasn’t just about the disappointment that my candidate lost. Or the fear of what Trump will do to this country. It felt like my very soul hurt and I realized that it was because of what this election said to me as a woman. It said no.

I am Her.

her

Every woman is, whether they know it or not. Every woman has been held back by, pushed down by, grabbed in the pussy by sexism that cannot, will not, allow a woman to rise higher than a man. The misogyny that pulses through this world, the blood that keeps the dick of American patriarchy hard, it penetrates us from the day we are born. Smile pretty. Be good. Be quiet.

Hillary Clinton stood up for women and when the world slapped her back down, my cheek felt the sting. I know that there is work to be done, battles to fight, toddlers to raise into Nasty Women.

I SUGGEST THAT YOUR READ THE COMPLETE ARTICLE HERE

How does love die? …. “It’s never a natural death …. “!!

HOW DOES LOVE DIE?

“Love never dies a natural death.

It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source.

It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals.

It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.”

THE TRUTH STINGS

Sorry, can’t give them a pass.

Sorry.
I struggled with posting this.
Someone sent this to me.
But, I do believe they may be just playing the game while trying to take away

“OUR RIGHTS”.
Hmmm …
Yes I struggled with it but you can see I came to terms with posting it.

I dear friend of mine posted this grap this morning.

He mentioned that he struggle to post it.

I can’t give them a pass either!

These people are sub-human.

They know no shame.

Among other nefarious things, both of them have dedicated their strong efforts to put down, denigrate, disenfranchise and dehumanize the Florida LGBT community.

In my humble opinion, there’s no place for you, yourpresence, your empty words of comfort, during this sad time in the history of Orlando’s LGBT community.

Pack up your hypocritic selves and go back to where you came from.

We don’t need you kind here amongst us.

It’s Saturday.

It’s a day to relax, chill and enjoy life ….

I saw this video coming through my Facebook Timeline.

Sorry, I had to share … it’s short and, I think, funny.

All in the spirit of jest … because you can’t take this guy seriously.

Thoughts for today, #367 …. “Feelings are real …. Never Apologize”!!


Never

~~April 14, 2016~~ 

FEELINGS JUST ARE

“Never apologize for how you feel.

No one can control how they feel.

The sun doesn’t apologize for being the sun.

The rain doesn’t say sorry for falling.

Feelings just are.”
