Motivational Monday – A Midsummer…. Note.

Dear Readers,

First, a warm thanks for all your support and positivity exuded to me here and in general. Deeply indebted. I usually refrain from talking politics on my blog but in the current climate, there’s some things in regards to bullying and harassment that I’d like to address candidly.

I know all of us can relate to the turbulent times our world is going through. How sad that issues from long ago regarding racism and the like are still alive and unfortunately well today. Instead of posting numerous, bloviating posts about my disdain for our current Presidential administration, I figured one note would be as effective. Embarrassment sums it up for me. I never thought in a million years that people unqualified to represent the USA would ever have a chance to do so. Wealthy men are currently trying to take away equal rights and empathize with the plights of the poor and working class people. Revolting.

But, to every wrongdoing there is a right one. Think back in history. Dire events like this creates pioneers, protesters, and advocates to “right the wrongs” of injustice. Dignity, grit, ethics, grace, knowledge, and humanity are just some of the words to associate with leaders. I hope my country will have this again—a fair and strong democracy. Currently we have a bloated miscreant smeared all over the “real news” who thrives on avarice, misogyny, and callousness—thanks to unlawfully buying his election from you know who. No worries people. Groups like the ACLU and Change.org (with our help of course) will aid in Trump’s comeuppance. Mark my words. The biggest gripe I have are the lies and bullying that has been in his backdrop from the get-go. It doesn’t just end in politics. It’s everywhere really. Whether you’re in school, at work, traveling, etc. Bullies thinking they can get away with this crass behavior. They’re wrong. No one has the right to harass or defame anyone and if they do, punishment is in order.

My blog is and always will be open to all, no matter what religion, race, or sexual preference. Diversity and kindness have always been (some of) my favorite words. This is a time for us to keep striving farther than ever. Endurance and respect are key. Hard work pays off. It starts with care. Caring about your life, loved ones, people with illness, children, environment, people with disabilities, neighborhood, people you pass by on the street, etc. Banding together, protecting each other goes on for infinite miles. No one, no matter what rank they hold, can ever take away your integrity, reputation, and conviction.

I leave you with words of wisdom from a couple of great men:

Our goal is to create a beloved community and
this will require a qualitative change in our souls
as well as a quantitative change in our lives.” 
~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.” ~ Harvey Fierstein

Ciao for now,
Lisa

What a week already! Especially with the highs/lows from the Supreme Court and yada yada. Here’s some words of wisdom to absorb…

“The only stable state is the one in which all men are equal before the law.” ― Aristotle

“Give to every other human being every right that you claim for yourself – that is my doctrine.”  ― Thomas Paine

“We have talked long enough in this country about equal rights. It is time now to write the next chapter – and to write it in the books of law.” Lyndon B. Johnson

“…if by a liberal they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people – their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, their civil liberties… if that is what they mean by a “liberal” then I am proud to be a liberal.” ― John F. Kennedy

Cheers to a liberated-love-libation-soaked weekend! I can’t wait 🙂 NY weather behave!

P.s. so siked our Justice system finally got clued in on deeming DOMA unconstitutional! Long overdue.
