Seeking Peace

100_1708

To seek peace and pursue it, is the true wisdom

of leadership.

May our leaders put away

their own version of insanity,

so that we can be safe in our homes

as we all work together

to make our world

a better place.

The True Strength of Leadership

20170915_164726

Maybe God is preparing us for strong women leaders,

morally sound, committed

to our democracy

to our people

principles we all have

etched in our hearts,

especially when men fall

far, far astray,

following darkness

instead of the light….

Note: I’m not advocating for Elizabeth Warren. There are many women, that would make an excellent president. Amy Klobachar?

Accountable

Did you know our constitution established 3 different branches of government?

There is the Congress, the judiciary, and the president. Each are to be co-equal.

And that it’s the job of the Congress to control the purse strings of government?

as well as hold the president accountable? It’s in the constitution.

Ain’t that something? It’s their job.

You see in the colonial times they were very concerned about the president having too much power,

having had some bad experiences with tyranny and the King of England.

So now, today, if we don’t hold the president accountable, where is our democracy?

Gone Astray

20170503_164915

It seems that conservatives in the House and Senate have gone far astray, much like a person of faith walking away,

lost in the wilderness, or denying there is any truth anymore, spinning Russian fables, smearing our heroes……to protect…….the idol, because he’s conservative.

 

Note: It’s not that progressives are sinless but here, in the Impeachment hearings, there is a clear presentation…….of truth.

Our Democracy

20170503_164915

Yes, I still love my country, but I don’t believe corruption should lay hidden simply because leaders carry the name, “conservative”.

Think they’re Prolife? Nah, pro life people don’t treat migrant children that way.

He’s been a con artist since Day 1, and you’d better start caring, because we all stand to lose……our precious democracy.

Within My Peace

20180930_130130

When readers come to my site what do they expect to see? Poetry mostly, or maybe a short story, but they are not really looking for political commentary. That’s not the way I designed this site.

And yet I feel things deeply, as many of us do, and much of what we see seems so wrong. How do we stop the madness?

Perhaps as artists and writers we are made internally to feel strongly and observe the insanity, so that we can articulate a response in a creative way.

And yet I hold back, firstly because of what I’ve mentioned. And secondly because I could easily spend all my time caught up in the turmoil of the times we live in.

I need freedom of spirit and mind to spread my writing wings. So I don’t need to solve the world’s problems, and especially not here on this site.

And yet you will on occasion see some lines on how I feel, hopefully in a natural way, usually condemning hate. I do think we should take a stand.

And finally, I am a progressive even though I don’t agree with everything they come up with, and that’s ok. I wasn’t always progressive though.

I think I can give a unique perspective because I’ve been on both sides of the aisle.

Within my peace I strive for a clear vision.

I hope you all feel respected and appreciated here. Thank you for listening.

Peace to you.
