The more I find out about these kids, the more impressed I am.

Multiply that by such a number and imagine how many amazing kids are out there in harm’s way.

Never thought of it this way.

The adults have dropped the ball.

It will be up to their generation to get this done correctly.

My support is with them all the way!

Strong, New Voices …. “🔥🔥 Emma González to Drumpf …. ‘We Call BS’ 🔥🔥 …. “!!

EMMA GONZALEZ

THE VOICES OF THE YOUNG

In the midst of a terrible mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, young voices are loudly raising to decry the lack of action from GOP politicians, including the ‘so-called president’, who are beholden to the NRA in view of the political campaign donations.

They have been bought and paid by the NRA.

This has to change.

It seems the generation coming up will not accept this!

Florida school shooting survivor SLAMS Drumpf and Republicans for doing NOTHING to stop mass shootings

🔥 🔥 🔥 EVERY WORD of this is FIRE 🔥 🔥 🔥

“They say that tougher gun laws do not decrease gun violence. We call BS!
They say a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun. We call BS!
They say guns are just tools like knives and are as dangerous as cars. We call BS!”

Thanks to Emma González for giving this AMAZING speech.

Emma González, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who survived Wednesday’s mass shooting, gave a blistering speech at an anti-gun rally on Saturday about the politicians complicit in the murder of her classmates. It was yet another reminder that the teenagers and children who grew up in the shadow of school shootings (and the 150,000 who survived one) are more practical – and less tolerant of empty rhetoric – than the adults who are supposed to protect them.

González had no use for crocodile tears from Drumpf, who was in Florida on Friday, February 16, to offer his condolences (and, reportedly, to drop by a Studio 54 theme party at Mar-a-Lago):

If the president wants to come up to me and tell me to my face that it was a terrible tragedy, and how it should never have happened, and maintain telling us how nothing is going to be done about it, I’m going to happily ask him how much money

he received from the National Rifle Association.

But hey, you want to know something?

It doesn’t matter, because I already know: $30 million.

To every politician who is taking donations from the NRA, shame on you!

BLineNRABLine

In February of 2017, one year ago, Drumpf repealed an Obama-era regulation that would have made it easier to block the sale of firearms to people with certain mental illnesses.

I don’t need to be a psychologist to know that repealing that regulation was a really dumb idea. Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa was the sole sponsor of this bill to stop the FBI from performing background checks on people adjudicated to be mentally ill, and now he’s stating for the record, “Well, it’s a shame that the FBI isn’t doing background checks on these mentally ill people.” Well, duh: You took that opportunity away last year! The people in government who we voted into power are lying to us. And us kids seem to be the only ones who notice and are prepared to call BS.

Puddles Pity Party: Sad Clown Stuns Crowd …. “America’s Got Talent 2017 …. “!!

“PUDDLES PITY PARTY”

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT

I’ve started watching ‘America’s Got Talent‘.

This is my second season. It’s a refreshing surprise to watch his man, a sad clown with a golden voice perform.

It made my life better then.

I’m looking forward for more performances from him.

PUDDLES PITY PARTY’S GOLDEN VOICE IMPRESSED AMERICA’S GOT TALENT JUDGES

Much to the bemusement of the judges and everybody in the audience, Puddles stepped in front of the mic as he usually does, with his giant suitcase and lantern. When pressed for some background info from the judges, he maintained the silent character he always has, only making a sound when he began his performance of Sia’s “Chandelier”.

Of course, he nailed the performance as he always does, but this TV appearance gave us something we’ve never really seen from Puddles before: genuine emotion. His singing is always poignant, but his character is just that: a character.

He’s a sad clown, but when he heard the enthusiastic applause following his big break, he got actually emotional in a real human way, tears running down his face and everything.

THE ONLY WAY IS FORWARD

Too much work, effort, blood sweat and tears have been invested in LGBTQ equality.

There’s no going back.

This isn’t the time to rest.

The new Republican Administration, lead by Drumpf, is launching an overt attack on the LGBTQ community.

It’s coming!

We won’t go back in the closet!

We are here to stay!

By all measures, 2015 will be remembered as a banner year for LGBT rights in the United States

The Supreme Court gave gays and lesbians the right to wed.

Popular culture and public opinion continued to increasingly accept transgender identities and same-sex relationships. Corporate advocacy beat back state religious-freedom laws that would have provided a defense for discrimination. And there are more than 450 openly gay elected officials currently serving across the country.

But backers don’t expect the good news to continue, at least in the short term.

FARE THEE WELL

“I guess it’s going to have to hurt, I guess I’m going to have to cry, and let go of some things I’ve loved to get to the other side
I guess it’s going to break me down, like falling when you try to fly,
Sad but sometimes moving on with the rest of your life starts with goodbye.”

‘Auld Lang Syne’ …. “Days Gone By …. Goodbye 2016 …. Uncertainty Ahead …. “!!


goodbye

~~December 31, 2016~~ 

THE YEAR 2016

During the early months of 2016, the world was shinning.

The promise of progress and positive change was in the air.

I married the love of my life in early January.

There is no doubt in my mind that 2016 has been a difficult year, full of change, challenges, losses, promises, conflicts and uncertainty.

Many loved ones have been lost that we are aware of and plenty must have been lost that we do not know about.

Personally, it’s been difficult for me because I have seen the ‘melting away‘ of institutions that have been very sacred to me.

I do not have today the hope, the joy and the looking forward to the next year (2017) that frequently accompanies this festivity.

I’m very concerned about 2017.

It’s lost the shine and luster that usually comes with new beginnings.

I haven’t been able to shake off a feeling of dread since November 8.

Call me a ‘snowflake‘, call me a ‘sore loser‘, call me a ‘pessimist‘.

Call me all you want; I can take it.

‘Stick and stones may brake my bones but words will never hurt me.”

I know how I feel and I know why.

I’m carefully observant and vigilant now.

I so hope to be proven wrong!

At the end of this crazy year I wanted to do something special to celebrate the lives of those we’ve lost.
I wasn’t able to include everyone, of course, but I tried my best to include those who meant something to me.
