Consider This Quote

"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves."
~ William J. H. Boetcker ~
(This is a quote made famous by Abraham Lincoln)

I found this quote here and felt it was something that we should consider as we look around at the chaos our beloved Country is experiencing. I feel that we must let our representatives know how we feel and be consistent in that contact with them.

Mom - I'm glad you are blogging again. It's good to read your adventures in life and what you are thinking. I think it's best if some things aren't so "perfect" it makes it feel more real and comfortable.

You know that I am not "word" perfect... haa haa play on words but it's true. I just write it like it is and hope for the best.

Love ya... keep on writing!
