Please, Make It Stop!


It seems there’s no limit to the rioter’s utter disgust and display of betrayal to this country, and no end to the stories of everything that happened at the US Capital.

There’s absolutely no context that could make the following headline okay and it certainly wasn’t done in the spirit of a “protest.” They had no valid ax to grind and no justifiable reason for their detestable behavior and acts of lawlessness.

Hopefully all resource efforts go toward arresting and prosecuting everyone involved. Law enforcement can no longer afford to be complacent with showing the same lackadaisical response we’ve witnessed with certain nefarious groups in the past. It was shameful to see a number of on-site DC/Capitol Police so complaisant in the insurrection.

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.

    1. Headlines like this are what you wish were fake news. At what point does one stop and say “ hey y’all, let’s pull our pants down, defecate in these halls and spread it through the building?” And then to get other fools to go along with it!!!
