Much Ado About the Weather

Biggest Pet Peeve of All Time:  Talking about the weather.

Why?
Because there is so much more to talk about,
so much more that needs to be talked about.

But the weather is comfortable, easy, non-combative. 

The implications of this sickens me. As if humans have nothing more in common than the sky above us.  Just because we live in different regions and grew up in different religions, doesn’t mean there is nothing more we share than the weather.  How about love, life, loss, struggle?

So careful not to say anything that is politically incorrect, we say nothing at all. 

It’s not the politics that are important in speech, it’s the message behind it.  I may not know the correct term for the newest gender category, but I know love and acceptance.

It doesn’t have to be confrontational or sensitive.
But please, just for once, don’t smile and say, “So, how ’bout this weather?”

This one time, how about we talk about
something real,
something meaningful,
something that deserves to be discussed,
something we actually have the power to change.

We can’t fix what we refuse to acknowledge is broken!  Nor can we recognize what is right, if we are not willing to open our eyes to the world around us.

Thank you for sharing this powerful piece Pinkspen!

LADYHOOD journey

You seek to destroy.

Continuously breaking down bridges.
Building barriers, high fences, and walls.
Corruption masked by popular culture.
The media lies covering truth.

Devouring a youthful smile.
Parents fearing for their children’s safety.

Eliminating comfort and security.

Prejudice for the minority…
…the poor and middle classes
…older adults
…people of color
…immigrants
…transgender men and women
…Jews
and …Muslims.

Breaking values, traditions and morals.
Devaluing bachelors and master’s degrees.
Electing government officials that tear down the weak and the innocent.
Breeding hate groups like the KKK….

A lack of resources for… veterans, immigrants, and older adults

The foundation of abolishing Native Americans and enslaving Africans.
Inequality for…

…LGBT+
…non-Christians

…Muslims

…older adults

…Mexicans

…African Americans

…Native Americans

…women and children

Raising racists and prejudice.

Legal disparities for African Americans and Mexicans…

Higher rates of arrests for drug offenses, for curfew violations and loitering for black…
