Amazing, the xenophobes are alive and well.

Well it seems that people have lost their minds again when Coca Cola ran their superbowl ad with many different people in different languages singing “America the Beautiful”.

I just do not see the problem, Coke is a American country that has gone global, why would they not celebrate their diversity. Yet the Xenophobes always have something incredibly stupid to say, and it has not been the first time.

When Marc Anthony sang the national anthem, another group of people also lost their collective minds.

So, what I did was email Coke and asked them to do another commercial with the same song but have Naive Americans sing in in their particular dialects.

What do you think?

Where is this world going to?

Well shootings seem to be the in thing nowadays, just had one pretty close to where I live that made national attention. Man lost it at a mediation meeting and shot 3 people, 1 died, 1 is said that he is not going to make it and the third, thank god will be fine. The killer shot himself and died after a run around with the police, then you have the stand off in Alabama and another shooting in Atlanta.

And it is not even the end of the week yet.

It seems people are just becoming more and more unhinged as the days go by, and this is just in America. I will not get into what is going on around the world at this point.

What is happening people, where are we going with this. If you want to see cruelty and blatant stupidity, just go to Yahoo News and read the comments on almost any article.

People are becoming more and more evil as time ticks away, I mean look at our last election. Never in my memory has there been such hatred toward one another before last November, even Romney was a total ass in how he handled his loss and his son did not fall far from the tree.

Why?

People get caught up in stupid things like racism, HELLO are we all part of the HUMAN RACE? Do we all not bleed the same color? Do we not all use eyes to see and ears to hear? Until something comes along that works different you cannot say one is better than another, it is just plain stupid.

My generation has failed Parenting 101, and it is not getting better as the next generation is having kids.

No values and even lesser morals.

Where are we going wrong?

I do know this, there is not one human being that can solve our issues. Only a intervention from a higher being (God/Jesus/Holy Spirit for me) can fix this mess that we are in.

Things will get a lot worse before it gets better and were need to prepare for the plunge.

Good luck.

People and cruelty.

It just amazes me how cruel people are. We had the issue with little Gabby and her hair being one example. I mean really people, the girl is 16 with a Olympic Gold Medal not 16 and pregnant, yet you want to get on her case about her hair?

What has this country turned into, I mean even in politics, people have degenerated into calling those who are part of another party names, like children in a schoolyard.

I also read today that a girl who was murdered about a year ago, her killer cut out a tattoo so it would be harder for the police to identify her.

I am not even going to into what cruelty I have received on a personal level in the last 2 months. It is really sad and these are the things we are teaching our children, not realizing that these children will be taking care of us when we get older. do you think that they are going to treat you any better?

We need to get things together and fix this problem before it is too late.

Just another bittersweet day.

Well Father’s Day has come and gone and every time it does I become just a little bit sadder.

My son did not call me today.

He is 7 years old, I am sure he knows what Father’s Day means.

Or at the very least his mother would have told him to call.

But that would be just a little too much to ask for.

But this blog is for me to wail and lament over, it is a wake up call to those people who are selfish and keep their children away from their other parent.

People, please push your children to have some form of contact with the parent that is not there. You will never understand the damage you are doing to these kids. Even if the other person is no good, does not pay child support or what ever excuse (non excuse really) you can think up of.

I never met my father.

It ALWAYS bothered me in school when we had project to do for Father’s Day and I would make something like the other kids but unlike the other kids I would make things for naught.

They would get thrown out in the garbage before I arrived home.

Now some people would say, “You should have gave it to your mom.”

But I didn’t want to give it to my mom, I wanted to be like everyone else and give it to my dad.

Now I wonder if my son thinks this way.

So please let a kid have a mom and a dad, even if you are not with that person anymore.

Keep your ego by the door, for the child’s sake.

Bittersweet Day

Well another Mother’s Day is here and another quiet and lonely day. My mother died back in 2001 due to the ravages of breast cancer.

Now people tell me that is better that she is not suffering anymore and that she is in a better place, but you know what, I am feeling selfish.

I want my mother to be alive, I want to here her voice, taste her cooking, and see her spoiling my son who she never met.

But no, I have to remind myself daily that she is gone and will not return in this lifetime.

I just pray that she made her peace with God so I can see her again.

I miss you Mommy.
