It’s been a long couple of weeks for people who are suffering in the aftermath of the school shooting in Florida. My heart goes out to the family who housed the shooter because, first, they let him in out of the kindness of their heart and just wanted to help him. And 2, they must have all manner of things going through their heads right now. But above all, my heart breaks for the kids in the school who lost friends and family, the families who lost their children or husbands/wives to an insane man with a gun.
I am pissed off that people bitch and moan about the listening session Trump held after to let the victims’ voices be heard. It wasn’t all for him. Congressmen were sure to be watching too. I’m angry at 100% no gun regulations enthusiasts who scare the shit out of me because they have a gun and are so afraid and paranoid, that you just want to hand the little dears a tin foil hat and call for the Aliens to take them away. Some of the extreme arguments and conspiracy theories boggles my mind and flabbergasts me. In the end, it is very sad that you cannot have a different opinion from someone else without being referred to as racist, bigoted or worse.
It’s sad when you can’t go to the voting booth and vote the way you want without fear of being blocked or turned away or worse. Like the older man in Chicago who was beaten up for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. A slogan that has been so grossly twisted and misunderstood, turned into a bad thing some people think means that Trump wants to oppress the people.
I usually keep politics off my blog because people are fucking nuts when it comes to their political views and the nicest people turn into shitheads when they think their opinions are being slandered. So, to be clear, these are my feelings, my thoughts. They are not yours, whoever you are reading this post…they’re mine. My deepest feelings go even deeper than said here but that’s too personal for a public forum for me, so I’ll keep those to myself for now. I might share them in the future, but right now, people are too insane about this stuff that I’m just going to protect myself and not share them at this time.
Like my picture says: Enjoy the Little Things in Life. Take hold of your child’s small hand and walk them to the park. Open up a good book that you’ve wanted to read for a long time. Go to the nearby community theater to spend an evening watching your local friends play on stage. Even go into SL and spend time with your family and friends. You don’t know when there will be a next time…Enjoy your lives. Your families. Cherish your friends. Enjoy the little things.
What I’m wearing:
I decided to go Blueberry for my outfit as a combination of the BerryDoll Dress (short version) and the Cocodoll shoes in white and Valentina hair from Truth Hair. I’m sitting at a scene in the Kawaii section of Backdrop City… If you haven’t been there yet, you should go. Backdrop city has backdrops for just about anything. I started going there before I got this new computer because I couldn’t move to other sims. Now I kind of mix it up. You can see more pictures I took this day on the Flickr Album.
