Today i was lucky enough to read and share one of those Ideal moments. It felt grand............so I am telling you.
I could get a rich man and a homeless man to swap places for a week. I wish I could get a judge or policeman to spend a week in their own jail. I wish I could get a politician to understand what it means to maybe die for lack of health care. I wish I could get people to step out of their personal world and see what it is really like to be forced to live "on the other side of the tracks". I feel your pain is BS, until you have actually suffered it.-Gary Graefen
I have had so many people tell me OH........your not Old.
Yet when you outlive thousands even though the CLOCK might say not ancient..................... you still know your old and could pass on.
With the Sad passing of George Micheal I decided he needed a memory. This has always been one of my favorite Christmas songs.
And as long as millions are alive not forgotten.
Yes I Am, a real person who has sensibilities and feelings. Yes I have beliefs about what America is and should be. No I am not a blind follower who will believe anything I am told just because someone else is good with a computer. I will validate my beliefs with study and due diligence. I will not take anything at Face Value anymore. I will become informed and enlightened. I will attempt to be honest in my dealings with others. Provide real facts and not opinion. I will do my very best for 2017 to be a real American. One who has learned that facts are far more important than opinion. I resolve to be real and honest for 2017. And do the very best that i know how to do.-Gary
Today I was talking with a friend and mentioned the post today about another post which incensed me with it's built in hatred and bigotry.
He related to me this experience at a local super market. The grocery store clerk is a gay male. He is hiding nothing but dressed and taught to act appropriately. A customer comes to his station and starts a dialog. You know it's a new world now. Donald Trump is president. Sodom and Gomorrah will be coming. People like you should change their ways. And an additional un-requested slur. Business's already are dropping clients who seem to think suddenly that open season on Gays, Muslims, and people with green eyes are fair game now. Courtesy is still expected. A persons life style as an American is not my business. If I am in business even more so. From my religious point of view: Christ forgave hookers and whores, blasphemers, he bathed the feet of his followers, he taught charity and giving. No where in the New Testament does it say that Christ would not forgive any who have sinned and asked for forgiveness.
He healed the sick. His attitude towards man was Loving as a whole.
So in your zeal to suddenly come out of the closet with hatred rhetoric. Pause and think what would Christ Really Say?
When someone dies and we must say goodbye. Sometimes tis better to feel with a gleeful heart. That things are as they are supposed to be and that with faith and love we shall meet again. <3 span="">3> -Gary,
Dear President Trump.......
My life sucks, no job, no money, no where to go. I know you just took office but I blame you. Your official future policy is going to destroy my life even further. I realize that we are not really sure what that will even be. But because your a Republican....... It's All Your Fault.
Sincerely, I was just born a loser and can't get past it.....
