Make America Heal Again

Love Thy Neighbor...
This past week has just been horrible.  Flat out horrible.  The Election results were quite shocking to say the least.  And for many devastating.  Maybe the system is rigged after all.  

I can't think of any Election that produced so many protests after the results came in.  Seriously...people all across our country took to the streets marching in solidarity against Trump being our newly elected President. Shouts of "Not my President" became a common chant.  Now that really says something to me.  There were a lot of people who were upset when Obama was elected, but I don't recall people coming out in masses in protest because he was the elected leader of our country.  Wonder what Washington thinks about that.  And those who did support Trump...wonder if they have put any thought into what may come to pass.  

This whole year has been pretty horrible if you think about it.  I have never seen so much hate and violence across our Nation~ I just don't get it.  You really can't place blame on one single person or candidate.  That's just not fair.  Americans are angry and disgruntled.  I get that.  But I do believe that the media, reality television and narrow minded politicians helped fuel that fire which did nothing but create and promote more hate and violence.  It just makes my heart very, very sad...clearly we haven't moved very far from the Civil Rights Movement.  Or so it seems.  

There is so much more I want to say...but it's all just too much.  Our mountains are on fire and there is not any rain in the foreseeable future.  We have a dear friend who is very sick and one of my co-workers unexpectedly lost his son Saturday morning while he was on his way to work.   I just can't take much more ya'll.  

What I can do is support causes that promote love and acceptance.  What I can do is pray for healing and strength.  What I can do is be a good role model for others.  What I can't do is tolerate continued hate and violence that has infected the minds of our citizens. I want to move forward, not backward.  

America is already great.  What we need to is Heal our country.  I think we can all agree on that one.  Until next time...elizinashe
Peace and Love Ya'll !

Life Will Go On...

Celebrate Life Ya'll...
It's Election Night.  And it's looking quite scary.  I am shocked and amazed that so many people have supported a candidate that has done nothing but instill hate and fear into the minds of our peoples.  Clearly we have not moved very far in our acceptance of those who are different from our own.  

We, meaning my mother and I, have a very dear friend who is very sick.  She just had major surgery last week, and has now been discharged from the hospital and transferred to a nursing home for a short term rehab.  I hope and pray that she will be able to return home to live out her days, as she really doesn't have much longer to live in this life.  And I've been upset about it most of the night.  It's finally hit me and I've been crying off and on for most of the night.  My heart just breaks for her and my mother is just devastated.  This is simply "the pits" as our friend would say.  I am more than sad and I'm not sure how to deal with this or be supportive.  All I can do is send love. 

Regardless of the outcome of this Election and our friend's recovery, life goes on.  It will take much healing and many tears.  I have no fear of what our friend's next adventure will be when she leaves this world.  I know she will go on to a fantastic place and be a blessing to all in encounter her.  I just hate that her journey had to take such a horrible route.  As for the Election....I'm afraid it's going to take a miracle to get things straight.  And that's for either candidate.  One will be more than detrimental, the other will be a constant battle with little change.  How did our country become so hateful?  But life will go on...for better or worse.  I vote for the better.  

Sending peace and love...elizinashe.  
More Love, Less Hate
