Princess Diana’s death had an impact on me and I can remember it as if it just happened yesterday. I didn’t know her personally, but my heart did. I think anyone who made the decision, long ago, to live their lives open and without regret were kindred spirits with her.
I truly believe that those of us who are easy going and laid back are the ones who suffer more than others. We take so much onto ourselves and feel as if we’re to blame for it (even when we’ve nothing to do with what’s being heaped upon us).
I’ve gotten much better – as of late – with realising it’s not always me. I might bring some things upon myself, but what I’ve allowed others to pile on me for years has nothing to do with me and everything to do with their selfishness, unhappiness and fear.
The best part of therapy is knowing I can say whatever I want to say and that there isn’t judgement. It’s a forum for me to say what I need to say — and one thing I know about myself is that I say what I mean and mean what I say. You might think that’s one in the same, but it’s not – think about it and it will make sense if you’re not understanding it right now.
I’m glad that they caught the two men responsible for the Boston Marathon bombings — well, caught one of them, anyway. I have no compassion for people who deliberately plan and carry out attacks meant to murder innocent people. Death for these people isn’t good enough. Period.
And now, America is once again faced with another Islamic attack – radical or not — these hate attacks keep coming from the same religious group. It seems to me that if these radicals are the minority — why aren’t the majority standing up to denounce them? I’ve asked that question since 9-11 and yet, we hear very little from the majority — some speak up, but those remain the minority of the majority.
As my grandfather said long ago, “He who is silent is understood to consent.” So, will the Islam majority speak up or will they remain silent? So far, the majority have consented to every attack around the world murdering innocent people all in the name of Allah and let’s be clear: HATRED.
My faith has been hijacked for years, but I speak out daily against the ultra-right evangelicals who claim they have the right to judge people in the name of God.
I’ve had little-to-no-time to interact with TiVO … I’m sure I have a bajillion (not really – it just sounds cool) shows to watch! I think I’ll be doing a lot of that today and tomorrow … since I plan on doing absolutely nothing – other than my basic chores that need to be done. 🙂 I’m into Golden Boy now … it’s a pretty good show and of course, The Graham Norton Show is back … and let’s not forget Elementary … and well, I could prolly ramble on and on, but I’m not going to do so!
Here’s to a great weekend … I’m sure I’ll have something to say later! 🙂
Love is the answer,
