FeaturedImages-Larger_Patriots

Through the years, we have been conditioned to believe that patriotism has been equated with military, police, first responders, etc. In fact, the government had for years funded the patriotic display of military at NFL venues. Why do we limit the role of patriotism to those categories of people? Why are we not honoring teachers, engineers, social workers, etc?

[I’m not a politician and I usually do not post anything too political, but here is what I would do if I was a congressman voting on H.R. 1628 – the American Health Care Act of 2017.] The short version of where I stand on this healthcare bill is that I am voting “no.” The long version of why I am voting “no,” I will explain how certain aspects of this healthcare bill and the ACA before it, will be in…

I was watching a video this morning of Louis Armstrong singing, “What a Wonderful World,” and it had me thinking quite deeply about life. The song reminded me of the current atmosphere, not only in politics, but also with life in general. There is a lot of Thanksgiving that needs to be instilled into our hearts and into our minds. People are ultra focused on everything that is wrong around us. There is constant criticism of everyone’s move. This is…

Montage added.] If this election has taught anything to anybody, it should be that we need to love one another, even if we disagree with each other. I have found that the only way people can change is for us to engage in an intentional conversation and genuine care for the other person, regardless of our differences. The beauty of this world is…

Why is that when some NFL players want to express how they feel about America during the National Anthem, they are condemned as though they do not have the right to feel the way they do? And why do these players marginalize America in a narrow perspective, offending those who love our country so much? What makes the United States so great is that we have a variety of thoughts that can be expressed in a variety of ways. We…

Perceptions from afar are usually off-base. Typically, they are formed with a picture painted by others who also perceive from a distance. Nothing beats the experience of learning first-hand, with your guard down, of knowing what things are really like. I remember people asking me if it was going to be safe living in Mexico, even by a few Mexican friends who have lived a good part of their lives in the US. They spoke about fears of being kidnapped…

FI-PrayingForYou

I have some mixed emotions after realizing last night there was all this news discussion based on a newspaper in NY that quoted Republicans about their thoughts and prayers. I won’t even quote the headline because of its intent. I’m not going to focus on the content of the story because we are not going to have a political debate here. This has sparked a debate in my head for which you have the pleasure, or regret, of reading. ha…
