Standing for the flag or Acting on what it Stands For

Standing for the flag or Acting on what it Stands For
All this controversy whether kneeling or standing with arms locked is disrespecting our country’s  flag has many people upset, some confused.  “For liberty and justice for ALL”.  I believe it would be disrespectful if we did not honor what our flag stood for and STAND UP for our rights to insure that we are indeed the country that our armed forces through the life of our country spilled blood over to give us. – the liberty and the freedom for justice for ALL.  Those who only see the kneeling during a song are missing the big picture and are not understanding the injustices that are going on. Respect is earned, Defending our democracy is respecting our country and given by partcipating and not quietly allowing it to be taken away. Democracy is not something fought for just on foreign soils but here in our own home. we cannot allow racism, bigotry and hatred destroy us.

Freedom Quote of the Day #41 -Jan 24, 2017

quote-if-you-would-be-a-real-seeker-after-truth-it-is-necessary-that-at-least-once-in-your-life-you-doubt as far as possible all things

“[…] the diversity of our opinions, consequently, does not arise from some being endowed with a larger share of reason than others, but solely from this, that we conduct our thoughts along different ways, and do not fix our attention on the same objects. For to be possessed of a vigorous mind is not enough; the prime requisite is rightly to apply it. The greatest minds, as they are capable of the highest excellences, are open likewise to the greatest aberrations; and those who travel very slowly may yet make far greater progress, provided they keep always to the straight road, than those who, while they run, forsake it.”

― René Descartes, Discourse on Method and Meditations on First Philosophy

Freedom Quote of the Day #40 -Jan 23, 2017

An Army of principles can penetrate where an Army cannot.

Law ought to be King, and there ought to be no other

“Let a crown be placed thereon, by which the world may know, that so far as we approve of monarchy, that in America the law is King. For as in absolute governments the King is law, so in free countries, the law ought to be King, and there ought to be no other.”

― Thomas Paine

Inauguration Day Nat’l Day of Protest Denver CO

Preparation paid off, my nerves calmed down, the march was peaceful.  The marchers respectful.  Democracy is not to be watched but to be participated in, it is our duty, even if we have to overcome our own fears and we speak with a tremble in our voices, we must speak out loud! 1.8 K Marchers + today.

Nurturing Thurs – Preparation

Tonight, I admit I sit here apprehensive about the future. This is not a good state of mind for a person with a predisposition to depression, a person with fibromyalgia that is easily affected by stress, it can put me into a flare of monumental proportions.  Since I started this blog I promised my readers that have followed my journey into the darkness that I would keep them apprised of my journey.

This is the day before a bigot, a man who has exhibited behavior to women that I have personally experienced, a man that doesn’t seem to even be literate enough to write a complete sentence, let alone intelligent enough to run a country becomes our nation’s leader.  This is a worrisome time not just for me, but for our country.  I believe he is an embarrassment to our country because he is not what our country…
