Think about the good that can be done in a world filled with peace

I am a different kind of veteran!

A veteran is defined as a PERSON who has had long experience in a particular field. We are ALL veterans of something.

I am a veteran of war and a veteran of peace.

I am a veteran of helping the people of Vietnam and of being vilified for it when I returned home.

I am a veteran of discriminating against someone and of being discriminated against by someone.

I am a veteran of hurting people, protecting people, and healing people.

I am a veteran of looking the other way and of turning the other cheek.

I am a veteran of deeply hurting someone and of deeply loving and caring for someone.

I am a veteran of conscious action and of conscious inaction.

I am a veteran of belittling someone and of praising someone.

I am a veteran of white privilege and of free speech.

This world of ours is filled with many different emotions, different feelings, and different colors.

Black Lives Matter; White Lives Matter; LBGTQIA+ Lives Matter; We ALL matter! But, some of us seem to matter MORE than others.

I believe EVERY LIFE matters and should be equally recognized. I also believe the BLM movement and the LBGTQIA+ movement must be at the forefront in the fight against racism, not just here in America, but worldwide. They have the most at stake and they DESERVE this time in our history.

These two movements have exposed the discrimination, bias, and ignorance that exists within each of us and within our society. The only way to extinguish these three flames of anguish is to educate them.

Thanks for reading… this far!

Iconoclastic individuals need not apply

The world is rapidly evolving in front of us. Certain iconoclastic dissidents have rushed the world stage to launch their irreverent, nonconforming, individualistic barrage of hate, lies, and complicitous allegiance onto a very public world stage.

There is no righteousness or honor in this band of misfits. Worldwide, they are known for dishonesty and aggression bordering on enslavement in various cities and countries of the world. They provide no solutions to the world’s problems, as their views hold no answers to the freedom being sought by many of the downtrodden.

In a perfect world, these bullies would be held accountable for their misdeeds, broken laws, and they would be given stiff penalties. Unfortunately, the world is not just. It is just broken!

Thanks for reading this to the end!
