We Are

We are the students in total fear, marching for the rights of our life.

We are the children and the young adults who grew up hastily overnight.

We are the parents, friends, and family not threatened by the NRA’s bluff.

We are devasted, heartbroken, and driven.  #ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

 

 

We are the undertakers preparing riddled bodies of victims fallen to gun violence.

We are the lens and ears that hear the screams and cries of a cemetery that holds no silence.

We are the activists, voters, supporters disappointed in our legislators NO vote on gun laws.

We are the senators and congressmen who let money reveal the weakness of our human flaws.

 

 

We are the blue and white collar workers who stood by and watched as Corporate America ship our jobs overseas.

We are the betrayed, lied to, and we’re definitely not pleased.

We are the punished, retaliated against, our rights were signed away.

We are the employees who suffer and we are in total dismay.

 

 

We are the entire White House Staff that works in an atmosphere created by fear.

We are the men and women tolerating the chaos, scandals awaiting the moment for the final frontier.

We are the poor, middle class, homeless, and tired.

We are no longer your working class because we all have been fired.

 

 

We are Corporate Banks never judge harshly or indicted and too big to fail.

We are Black, Brown, and Beige who didn’t commit a felony but was quickly introduce to a jail cell.

We are mentally disabled, shamed, framed and blamed for every Intentional incident.

We are the first budget cut. There are no institutions.  Jails are not the cure nor should it be our resident.

 

 

We are without support systems and there is no triage.

We are on the opposite end of the spectrum.  Our lives are being sabotaged.

We are labeled as socially unacceptable, the worst of the worst behaviors.

We are isolated from society. Who will be our savior?

 

 

We are scientists, think tanks, entrepreneurs, gathering information from the four corners of the earth.

We are a Good Nation investing in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Climate Change, Education, Cancer, and Multiple Disease Research.

We are the Media, Journalist, Writers, that needs to be reassured Democracy Did Not Die In The Darkness.

We are the Intelligent Minds who must continue to Recognize the man who seeks power is unorganized and lacks the skill set of smartness.

 

 

We are Breaking News where many stories rapidly unfold.

We are not confused. There are many strategies and tools for our brain’s sensory overload.

We are Athletes, Sports Executives, and Commentators socialized in a culture of gambling, drugs, and alcohol use.

We are the Women who voices were heard.  Women who rose to the occasion, and remain to fight against sexual harassment, child, and spousal abuse.

 

 

We are immigrants, Grand Guardians and protectors taking a stand.

We are the children of the undocumented that has every right to reside on U.S. Land.

We are UK, United States, Germany, in total disagreement of Rusia sinister act of war.

We are the messengers with our megaphones serving notice to Russia’s Czar.

 

 

We are the special counsel, FBI, investigators gathering evidence into the Russia Probe.

We are staying focus, factual and thorough sealing the gaps and closing down the loopholes.

We are the pragmatist, listeners, humble and ready to jump-start the conversation.

We are Susan Rice and General H.R. McMaster, National Security Advisors, understanding the relevance of communication.

 

 

We are Command, taking Command working with all faculties and common sense.

We are the Army, the Navy, the Airforce, the Marines, honoring the strategies of a strong Secretary of Defense.

We are the Red States and the Blue States with different opinions, taking different actions.

We are the United States, a nation that can govern, unlike McConnell, Ryan, and the GOP faction.

 

 

We are religious, God-fearing let no man put asunder.

We are all God’s Creatures, not the Commander In Cheif Creation. This is Why he lost his thunder.

We are the great lens of our nation, vigilant, and perched upon the highest steeple.

We are engineers, architects, map makers with new designs and new directions for a brighter future.  We Are The People.

Erase Away The Day

I watched the Golden Globe Awards on the carpet, not on the linoleum floor.  I could feel the pressure around my jaws as my face begin to tighten. All I could think about was my daughters and my granddaughters. Give them the opportunity to blossom into women and don’t let their self-esteem be stripped by “Shush.”  Lord don’t let a younger generation of women travel my road of Seen and Not Heard.  Women in my day were inappropriately touched by their teachers, fathers, relatives, so-called friends and ministers to be later told they would go to hell.  Who would believe them?  The greatest disappointment and the biggest Shush is when you tell your mother, guardian, or a person who you thought was a trusted friend.  The biggest hurt comes when they don’t believe you. It can shut your voice down for many years.  I pray to God Time will be Up when they embark on their journey in their lives.  Don’t get Shushed. Continue to be Heard. Continue to be Seen.

There was a voice from the late 60’s that floated through my head. As I closed my eyes I could hear Angela Davis speak about men’s power. Angela’s voice echoed, men will not cow down. Through the lens of men’s eyes, they will find a way to dismantle and manipulate any purpose or program that will put women in a position of power.  It will be done in your home, job force and government agencies (White House). Men objectify women. They feel women are their accessories (fur coat, leather glove, diamond ring, trophy wife). The abstract now becomes concrete.  Men will rise up and do everything to make women pay by lowering women into the bargain basement. It’s strange how men can drop women off into the bargain basement but don’t want to select their wives, girlfriends, or fiancée from the bargain basement. Men of power do not want their daughters dropped off at the Going Going Gone Shop in the bargain basement. Look what men do with their power.  Thinking with Penus Power has failed every time.

I found it really hard to write.  I felt my voice getting smothered and my fingers going numb. Nine months have rolled by. Hope begin to knock on my door and at my fingertips. The greatest line from the movie Scarface popped into my head. “Say Hello To My Little Friend.” The Hollywood Shoot Out of Sexual Harassment had revealed the many Scarred Faces in Hollywood.  It opens the door for the Recognizable and Unrecognizable to come forward and tell their story. Every Scarred Face and Scarred Heart across the nation would grieve, wear black, and share the global runway.  Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey took the lead for pieces of the puzzle on sexual misconduct.  It was pointed out there are many more pieces of the puzzle to come.  Gorilla glue is making the case for sexual harassment.   Alabama rolled out the red carpet before the Global Awards and made it quite clear there will be no sexual predators in the United States Senate.  They too should get an award for letting the world know having a sexual predator for a senator is definitely not the norm.

There has been so much division, hatred, and the most unremarkable behavior witness in my lifetime. I looked and searched for any channel to help Erase Away The Day. I watched a lot of Jimmy Fallon because he wasn’t riding the political tidal wave.  I was so amazed how the media continue to ride their horse after being so heavily attacked.  I needed time to regroup. I had so much to reflect on. The numbness is beginning to slowly wear off at my fingertips. I recall Tweeting after the Alabama election.  After viewing the Golden Globe Awards my heartfelt much lighter. My brain didn’t look like Pin Head.  My mind felt at ease.

All that Intentional Behavior brought to the forefront by people who knew better.  These men had a choice to make the right decision and didn’t. Yes Say Hello To My Little Friends Matt Lauer, Charley Rose, Bill O’Reilly, Blake Farenthold, Roger Ailes, Russell Simons, Mario Batali, and there are so many more. I  think Clarence Thomas name can fit inside the many more.  These are the infamous master of educators to the hidden residual rule of Sexual Harassment.   Think all the people who were diagnosed with a neurological syndrome and just didn’t have a clue about sexual harassment. The abstract is now concrete.  Well, you got infamous recognizable face wear now. Thanks to Me Too Movement, Times Up Movement, and the many women’s movement growing at light speed who were Seen and Heard. Most of all Thank You for telling your story and not letting Sexual Harassment Erase Away The Day and Erase Away Your Life.

 

Through It All

Feelings and continued existence cannot be borrowed.

Bestowing LOVE and precious TIME is monumental throughout loneliness and sorrow.

Developing friends and relationships there will emerge dispute and pleasure.

The memorable TIMES shared can be written down in your ledger.

 

 

Distance put between us caused unbearable heartache.

Acknowledging the people you love and lost is not a setback or mistake.

You are allowed the right to grieve, cry, and hurt in your own TIME frame.

No matter how long it takes there is no reason to feel ashamed.

 

 

The moment of tragedy can strike at any given time and life lesson will become a teacher to us all.

Death knocked on your doorway, texted you, and sent an email to remind your grief isn’t small.

Every day is respected as a new day because the pain, sorrow, and heartache are not finished.

The greatest Life Lesson to learn is these feelings can be diminished.

 

 

We should live our lives in such a way,

Acknowledgment of friends and relationships should come on a regular day.

In the face of adversity, one must show their friend.

Trials and tribulations will strengthen the bond within.

 

 

It may take years and years and probably the rest of one’s quality of life accomplishments.

Loss of those we love can open a gateway to appreciating life and not to hoard resentment.

In the darkest hour when trouble arises be there to motivate a friend not to do wrong.

Feed the flames of humanity and give support so they can become strong.

 

 

Through it all, reading the ledger became our mighty rock.

Reflections of the days spent together made our hearts go tick-tock.

Through it all, I have felt your presence and never abandonment.

There will be days in our lives we will have petty nonsensical arguments.

 

 

Through it all to have a friend who is there through the journey of your plight.

A person so caring and selfless who help you battle your fight.

Through it all, they lifted your spirits and navigated you through an abusive relationship.

The Flag-Ship of Friendship who help lower the anchor on Blame, Guilt, and Detriment.

 

 

Through it, all this may come as a surprise to what we can do.

Knowledge, a pure heart, and commitment will help us make it through.

Through it all, we need cheerleaders to point out our faults.

A friend who is willing to hold your hand in the storm and throughout the draught.

 

 

Through it all each day of our life we have so much to be thankful for.

You don’t need to be placed on a pedestal when you are a guiding star.

Through it all there are many keys that will unlock tragic moments in our life.

One day a friend will come along to help you get past the pain and strife.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Biden__ology

None of these contenders took the course. Well, it was reported 4 of the contenders took the course. Who did the reporting? B.C. said he had special knowledge. Yeah! I wrote the Koran.  Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are going to produce my biopic.  I won’t bother to come to the Academy Awards. Know This! I am going to win.  This brother is definitely Before Christ. Did they fail the course? Did they cut class? What happens to their mental processing? Who took the class?  It’s too embarrassing to say out loud. Psssssssk! No!  Get out of here! Zip It. This is too juicy. Come On! Let me drop a few hints.  The man behind the Iron Rag. What! Don’t you mean the man behind the Iron Mask? Just think about it for a second. I get it. He wanted to build a wall. Remember the Iron Curtain? What would you do when you want your hair to stay in place?   I go get my Doo-Rag.  There you go, Iron Rag. This Brother needs to wrap his head in Iron to keep his poison thoughts from seeping and creeping into the minds of We The People. This next person is on a Lou-Lou.  Maybe he watches too much Hulu.  Is that an owl with a hat sitting over there on a branch. Those are Bushes who got left on the ranch. No! This brother believed he was a famous character back in 1960 chilling with his friend Zeus. The Greek God Zeus. No! Dr. Zeus. You sound like Newt. This brother needs to lay off the Spam. What do you think about this, Pam? Hey! I don’t eat green eggs and ham. Has anyone talk to Sam. He’s bent on government shutdowns. D**n!  Have you ever talk to a person and your mouth started to get dry?  Why did I ever stop to say, Hi? Did you feel really thirsty?  The conversation went nowhere and this brother wasn’t worthy. He grabs my bottle of water and he took a drink. Ohooo! Pissed me off. Did he not think?  How can you trust this brother when he doesn’t pay his own bills.  He calls in for work and uses the EXCUSE he’s ill. How can you trust a brother who will never be able to negotiate our nation a deal? They all failed the course. For Real! For Real!

Tough course! Bring your heart, soul, and brain You’re right. I had to take this course more than twice. On the For Real Side, I probably will be enrolled in this course for the rest of my life. Biden_Ology!   The science of a man packing the Truth and Facts. Biden_ology! It is the science of a real human being with a tremendous amount of compassion.  This course demonstrated how the older man delivered a political spanking.  The younger opponent got spanked.   Hey, that statement sounds weird but I was just reflecting back on the 2012 debate.  My mind has fast forwarding to 2015 debates and the movie Friday.  The Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (censored version) You got knocked the F**k out.  Did Biden react like an old man?  Guess who will be on the cover of Eternal Magazine? We know it won’t be Jeb Bush.  Biden_ology tossed AGE right out the window in 2012.  Biden delivered right hooks, left hooks, uppercuts and constant jabs to the REAL old man who holds the gavel on a shrimp platter. This brother got doused with Joe’s secret sauce.  How ironic!  The Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, will be reminded every time his gavel swings Biden_ology will take him down. Biden laughed his way through the debate barely making any frowns.  Biden_Ology made Ryan look like the Actress who played Murphy Brown (Candice Bergen) real-life father’s puppet clown.   Science is a Branch of knowledge. Wait a minute!  We are talking about Biden_Ology.  We are talking about the whole Tree.  Look at all those contenders who don’t have a leaf to stand on and will not be included in the forest. Why? They don’t believe in science because they are climate deniers and liars. Let it be told by the opposite end of the spectrum this course was too brutal with too many interruptions.

Biden answers were to the point, not exaggerated, and very witty.  Bro can hang with Jay-Z, Maroon 5, and P Diddy.  Yes, 2016 election is going to Hurt Like A Mother F**ker. Maroon 5 sings it better than none other.  So be it if the title of Maroon 5 song comes out of Biden mouths used in a different context, Ye better know it! Biden will say what he means and means what he says. Gaffe! Get out your deck of cards and deal. Time to call a SPADE a SPADE.  Here comes the aromatic flavor of Unintentional Behavior. Look at all the crap the new Hammer of the House has said Intentionally. Look how the man behind the science handle the response of the so-called Gaffes. Play the 2012 debate tape again. Biden was cool, calm, collected and caring.  A true science that gives a D**n.  Biden_ology offers the following:

1.) The Fact of the matter ( Truth/credibility)

2.) Being on the same page

3.) So much laughter

4.) show me and stop talking

5.) direct eye contact

6.) simple answers

7.) concrete answers

8.) bottom line

9.) Specifics

10) a real Plan

11.) a rhythmic finger carried no threat to Martha, even the first tapping on the desk made you realize it was all about understanding the message. (Don’t give me that “Malarky”) It takes a really skilled person to wave a finger in someone’s face and not appear to be threatening, unlike Jan Brewer the former governor of Arizona.

12) “Bling Bling”  I like your Smile song by Shanice.  Superficial smile upheld by Vaseline isn’t allowed.

Go ahead and register for the course of Biden_ology. Your body will absorb straight up GOODNESS and soooo much FLAVOR.   Biden_ology is a rich blend of black tea but we will not extract from Biden’s vanilla.  Taking this course will help relieve your stress.  Just think what would happen if you encounter Biden at least 3 Times a day or 3 times a week.  The path you have chosen will lower your risk of a heart attack or stroke.  Have you thought about what will happen if you encounter the contenders of 2016 at least once a day? Stroke and heart attack are imminent. How did the ambulance get here so quickly?  The ambulance was just around the corner of the stroke and heart attack. See what happens when holding a conversation with a bunch of Knuckle-Heads.   Your energy got drained.  Well, it’s not too late to enroll in Biden_ology an increase your energy level. Don’t be afraid to gain the happiness factor. You won’t regret taking this course. Biden_ology offers the same health benefits as Black Tea. Sip! Sip!  Drink up.  As far as the warning labels I don’t think surgeon general Vivek Murthy will contest the man behind the science. I’m cool with that.  It would be awesome for the surgeon general to contest the contender’s Bs.  Why not? Who held up the confirmation of Vivek Murphy?  Exactly!  The science of Biden_ology jumps starts the mind and points out the “Malarky”.

A real combination of sweet cinnamon to help control weight, lower blood sugar, and help neutralize odors.  Do you feel the urge to eat yourself into a coma while talking to people who nauseate you?  The man behind the science will help you control your appetite, stay focus, and remain alert.   Your blood sugar will stabilize.  The dizziness and nausea will go away. The stench will be removed from the room. Everyone seems to agree Biden is a MIGHTY GOOD MAN.  So does Salt and Pepper who sings this song.   Black pepper generates hydrochloric acid to help reduce the heartburn and indigestion.  I will get my amounts of money worth in taking this course and pour in the honey.   If I could only nail down the ability to establish friendships and develop long-lasting relationships it would make me so happy. People would realize I’m not rude at all. Biden_ology is just the course I need.  Biden is quite recognizable except to the ladies in Trump’s beauty pageant.  These women couldn’t tell the moderator who is the Vice-President of the United States. Look at this book. It has a lot of factual information and no fluff. Readers Digest was the condensed version and had more substance in its cup.  The last book I read was so big I felt as though I would throw up. Peppermint, Spearmint, and Chamomile Tea will help relieve this symptom.

Ginger is in the mix.  It will help with nausea and your loss of appetite. Ginger helps with the digestive problem.  Throw out the tummy tums and relax. Don’t worry about acid reflux. You’re safe.  This is the science behind the man who knows how to roll and treat people gingerly.   Add a star of anise. Don’t use the Japanese version of a star of anise.  You might get poison. Use the Chinese version.  Trump would like the China version. Get rid of inflammation and the yeast in your system.   Everyone has probably encountered a fungus in their life. Did you get poison?  Perhaps the wrong brand was used.  You’re rolling with the wrong crew. We know who is the STAR of anise.

Go ahead! Take the course and learn how to deal with the beast. Here come the smile and the laughter.  “Malarky” Thereafter!   BIDEN  shut down the debate.  We can’t leave out the clove. There are no bruises, headaches, and your blood is circulating first-rate. Biden_ology is classy and full of robust flavor. The science behind the man is classic Chai Latte you will never forget to savor. Take the course and learn about behaviors.  Not a branch of knowledge but the whole tree. The science behind the man who struggled and survived many adversities. Save a seat for me in your LIFE LESSONS UNIVERSITY. Biden_ology!

Dedicated to the Vice President Of The United States

JOE BIDEN

The Humpty Trump Dance__Do Me Baby

Time to talk SMACK. A laser light parade behind The Donald. Whew!  I can’t believe he used a battleship as a backdrop to do his speech and never served in the military. This is something that I truly think you would enjoy. Who would enjoy? She knows who I’m talking to. Can you tell me?  Keep reading the story.  You will find out. You haven’t got started yet. If you let me finish and stop flapping your liver lips I can go with the flow of getting my point across.  My liver lips? What do you mean by that? The liver is a large filtration organ in the belly. It is the yum-yum eat em up of the digestive tract. So if you don’t eat healthy the liver can’t take what you’ve eaten and make it useful for your body. The liver neutralizes harmful substances that enter the bloodstream Your point is.  Baby girl you and Donald Trump have no filter. There is no need to bring a plumber. As for as my processing goes I think this is a great feature that you possess.  Good news, it’s not INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR.  As far as The Donald he is not fake. Cool your jets and don’t hate.  Many people find it hard to live with the pretty poison you spit from those soup coolers backed up by your Hoover Vacuum Cleaner when both you and the TRUMPSTER open your mouth.  Yeah, Baby Girl you do not clown around.  The  Donald will roast the town.  It is your property.  The real-estate value has a tendency to go down when you both approach people on their turf. Don’t get all huffy. You are not a scripted person. Entertainers Indeed! Neither one of you is prim or proper. Not even stuffy.  The Donald is not scripted. He has his stash of cash. The Donald is not buying nor will he be manipulated.  When I stand before you and talk I know you will deliver.  TRUTH by NO FAULT. What do we call it? Coming At You From The Flip Side Of The Chart it would be called social blunders, gaffes, down-right rudeness, a slip of the lip, or a boo-boo.  From the opposite end of the spectrum, we call it acting a fool and being ignorant.  When it becomes unbearable one can become downright indignant. The Donald is ferocious, notorious and braggadocious.  He is wrapped up in his image and this Brother is on fire.  Trump message is really scary and his mind is walking the tightwire.  I call it pure vanity. The Donald loves himself.  Trump raised the bar on insanity? Nothing fake. No dress rehearsal. Bare A** to all humanity.  Now can we use profanity?  Only if it slips.

Time to hook Donald Trump Up with the remix. It was back in 1989 when Digital Underground was unscripted and doing themselves. In order to get on board, Digital Underground didn’t care if you rode their train or not. It was all about DO ME, BABY.  Yes, Digital Underground has resurfaced and THE DONALD has been reincarnated with his trademark “the HAIR” instead of  “the NOSE.” Digital Underground was representing their SEXY. Twenty-six years later The Humpty Trump is here to VEX THEE. Dropping bombs and rolling up on stage coming off in a blaze. The GOP, The Koch Brothers, The Media are up in arms and truly amazed. Trump has Stomp The Yard. Rocking the 2016 contenders and catching them all off guard.  Hop on over to YOUTUBE and check out the video by Digital Underground. Yes, this is perfect for The Donald. Every time The Donald steps upon the stage he reminds me of David Chappelle famous quote, “I’m rich B****.  Why should The Donald bow down? Yes, just imagine a foreign dignitary not recognizing The Humpty Trump for his achievements in foreign policy if he wins the nomination for the presidency. I can see why the President would be worried.  By the way, does Trump have any knowledge of foreign policy?  Trump would go into Rick James mode, “I’m Rick James B****.  Not recognizing the Recognizable is quite an insult for those who feel they have paid their dues. Who is Rick James? Donald Trump’s ego unscripted.  Why is The Humpty Trump polling high? The Donald is coming off as himself and he is DOING HIMSELF. Meanwhile, the GOP has undertaken the next video by Digital Underground featuring 2Pac, The Same Song. Visit Linda Garrett’s Google+ and check out the video.  You can’t go wrong.

 

I’m Braggadocio.

I fan the flames of arrogance and dance to the beat of boastful.

My sidekick can be identified as Pinocchio.

Kicking A** in the polls while the GOP is going postal.

Me, myself, and I are the new trio.

I’m Big Buff Billionaire taking my Humpty Trump Dance coastal.

 

Do Me, Baby! Do the Humpty Trump. Do The Humpty Trump

Do Me, Baby! Are you ready for embarrassment?  Are you ready for The Donald stump?

 

Being myself with no regrets.

Calling out the constituents who lack my flare.

They never figure to place their bets.

On THE DONALD pressing the really weird hair.

What I say is no big threat.

Don’t you know I am the Republicans worst nightmare?

 

Do Me, Baby! Do The Humpty Trump. Do The Humpty Trump.

Do Me, Baby! Whoa! Back it up. I did not call Carly Fiorina an old frump.

 

Rolling in my limo or when I take a stroll.

The question never ceases to arise.

Did you have any idea women would take to the polls?

If it was left up to Megyn Kelly it would be my demise.

Wait a minute ladies, The Humpty Trump has a soul.

Just to let you know “WHATEVER,” Hell even I’m surprised.

 

Do Me, Baby! Do The Humpty Trump. Do The Humpty Trump.

Do Me, Baby!  Ah Yeah! Take it to the next level and Let’s Get Crumped.

 

You think I’m treacherous, tumultuous, downright dangerous.

Sounds like Jed Bush,  Lindsey Graham, and John McCain to me.

Take me Seriously. I’ve been generous. Fox pissed me off and I was furious.

Trump gave out cell numbers. Invited associates to his wedding. Just ask Hillary.

So we all get a little crazy. At least I’m not shady. My trademark is Trump-style fabulous.

Humpty Trump sounded the alarm and meant no harm to avoid the control freak conspiracy.

 

Do Me, Baby! Do The Humpty Trump. Do The Humpty Trump.

Do Me, Baby! Recognize!  Don’t criticize or apologize.  The Donald is no one’s chump.

 

Fourteen candidates plus Trump will participate in tonight GOP debate.

Will The Donald instigate, intimidate, and infuriate?

Not one contender has been able to duplicate The Humpty Trump entertainer gone buck wild.

Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson don’t forget what The Donald will demonstrate.

I hope you Brothers have certified birth certificates.  If not get ready to be defiled.

Chris Christie doesn’t exaggerate. Scott Walker will get annihilated. John Kasich go tell Mike Huckabee The Donald will not cooperate.

Humpty Trump is ready to terminate. You are not sitting at the White Pearly Gates. He is Wrecks-N-Effect. It’s The Donald’s infamous style.

 

Do Me, Baby! Do The Humpty Trump. Do The Humpty Trump.

Do Me, Baby! Stick with me ladies. Tell the Koch Brothers to get ready to take their lumps.

 

The Donald is narcissistic. Undeniably infatuated with his ideology and he is sick with it.

Reaching out to every person that will believe his rhetoric.

While everyone knows The Humpty Trump is talking pure Bull Sh**.

The networks treated The Donald like he is__A real D***.

Has it stopped The Humpty Trump? He is a die-hard who won’t quit.

He is delirious. Get serious.  The Donald is the true meaning of prick.

 

Do Me, Baby! Do The Humpty Trump. Do The Humpty Trump.

Do Me, Baby! Outrageous, contagious! Don’t worry this brother will fall into a slump.

 

Raison d’être

It is the purpose of one’s existence.

It is the most dominant reason in one’s life.

Inhale the air of confidence.

What are you willing to sacrifice?

 

Awaken to hope, change and persistence.

Go in search of your destination

Continue on the path of benevolence.

Travel the journey of determination.

 

Bask in the sun and walk along the shores of significance.

Raging waters has made its attempt to wash away the sands of commitment.

Strike down the ordinance of arrogance and ignorance.

Diplomacy takes the lead while Trust lies dormant in the shadows with the constituent.

 

Perseverance presides over the house of accomplishments.

Endurance lies in the center core of one’s soul.

Application brings reality to people/group achievement.

Every second and every minute brings you closer to your goal.

 

Claw and scratch to your hands bleed, avowing to denounce discrimination.

Quality of life cannot be viewed through the lens of fear, pain, suffering, nor abandonment.

Consequences of the bloodshed of our children scarred and disrupted our nation.

We remained steadfast and vigilant only to be acknowledged by disparagement.

 

What is so important to keep one’s breath flowing?

Did you analyze every single choice?

What kept your heartbeat ticking as your mind kept going?

Existence resides here in one’s voice.

 

It is the purpose of one’s existence.

It is the most dominant reason in one’s life.

Death, as we know, is imminent.

Suicide carries a weighted price.

“Raison d’ être”

 

You’ve Given So Much

I’m rocking Stevie Wonder song in my ear.  The birth of this young man taught many lessons.  His life and all the things defined in the life that he could not do paved the way for new choices, changes,  and accommodations.  Whatever was defined as his deficit gave our family a great strength to go and do research.   This would help find this young man a way to navigate a path to success.  Yes, it landed on our doorstep.  Our family was not afraid to tackle the frustration. For some family members, there were moments of embarrassment, tears, and laughter. This was an educational moment! The greatest teaching moments of all TIMES was not to be viewed as all the things he could not do. It gave each family member the opportunity to see what they were not to take for granted and appreciate what they had the ability to do.

Coming from the Flip Side Of The Chart as the diagnosis was handed down at that very moment in TIME I realize my diagnosis was more of the killer.  Cancer is a systemic disease and can spread like a wild-fire.  Nonverbal Learning Disability is encompassed by social, motoric, and visual-spatial components. This is not a killer.  Secondary to the initial diagnosis, anxiety, panic, stress, and depression can raise its ugly head.  Don’t be afraid it is TIME to develop strategies and coping skills.   The only thing which would be a killer about my son diagnosis is not knowing, not having a support system, and understanding that his behavior was UNINTENTIONAL.  My son is not Emotionally Disturbed. He cannot read or understand people emotions because of impaired social interaction.  This happens when he or others fail to respond to their name and often avoid eye contact with other people. He has difficulty interpreting what others are thinking and feeling because he can’t understand social cues such as facial expression, the intonation of one’s speech, body language, and he doesn’t watch others facial expression to gather social cues.  His behavior would seem inappropriate because he lacks the ability to show empathy, compassion, and support. The good news is he is willing to learn.  Was his behavior Intentional? No! Parents, relatives, friends, and associates need to learn and realize about people we encounter in life as awkward or may not be considered as social butterflies. The OSCARS proved that by a young man admission of feeling rejection and had attempted to take his life at the age of 16.  Now it was his moment in TIME to shine. Bottom line, the opposite end of the spectrum should not judge the behaviors of others because they can choose and make the right decision.   They choose to throw it all away because of selfishness and greed. Every individual does not have that choice.  Neurological disorders rob many individuals of that choice.

All that Psychological jargon or babble and all it boils down to helping the individual put the pieces of the puzzle together when they don’t get the whole picture. It is making the person aware that if he sounds rude or terse point it out and helps him use more constructive words. Give the individual HOPE and let them know everyone makes mistakes.  Make it clear it is not one person on this planet that knows everything or can do everything.  Make it clear there are 24 hours in a day and they did not mess up all 24 hours. Whatever you do always INCLUDE the individual. Never assume the individual knows always TEACH.  Life is a thread. Through the eye of the needle, our stitches must be bound tight and we must pay attention and stay focus. For those who cannot stay focus another route can be taken.

To help me through the darkest storm.

Research and education kept me armed.

He is a masterful educator for you and me.
