three tours in a hostile place, to find peace within nature

a tree in the middle of a lush green forest: This file photo shows the Appalachian Trail and the rural nature of the trail near the scene of the fatal attack Saturday May 11, 2019. This is about one mile from where the attack occurred. (Appalachian Trail Conservancy)

Such a tragedy in a place that, there is suppose to be peace and serenity, a place where you go to escape the ugliness? Although this poor Individual unexpectedly walked right into it. The Individual in question had served three tours in Iraq, came home not the same man he once was, he suffered from PTSD and depression, his wife says he would sleep all day and either watch TV, or play video games by night, the two had separated as he fell further into depression. Finally one day he wanted to truly find himself again, so he took to the trails of the Appalachian trail. This trail is supposed to be about peace and serenity, while you walk within nature, it helps you to clear your mind and feed your soul, it is not suppose to have any ugliness on the trail at all, but unfortunately, the ugliness found him in the form of an mentally deranged Individual.

This Soldier of three tours didn’t ask for this, as all he wanted was to truly find of who he once was, so he can continue moving forwarded better and stronger throughout this journey. Yes the person responsible was captured and brought to justice, but a little too late for this true American Veteran hero, as now he will never get that second chance, to be of truly who he really was.

Sometimes life just isn’t fair, this journey and all that happens within it, will bring great pain and hurt, this journey will turn us into someone we truly are not, with all the ugliness that is around us, most of the time it isn’t even our fault, as a lot of our pain and sufferings comes from another, or a situation that we have entered into. Then as we try to fix ourselves, it becomes even worse, as we then try to escape into a place where we think is safe, a place that has nothing but beauty all around at every turn, then unexpectedly, we are facing ugliness square in the eyes.

This tragic event within the trails of the Appalachian trail, should really of never happened, as this trail is within mother nature, with all the true beauty you can see far and near, when you plan this hike and take the first step on this great trail, the last thought in your head is any kind of ugly thought. There are many who hike, have hiked and will be hiking this trail, they do so because they have become lost on their path of this journey, they want to embark on a place, where they can clear the clouds of their judgments and truly get back to who they truly are. Depression no matter how you have entered within, will eat you from the inside out, while most of the time you hide deep within yourself and never let anybody in. The great Robin Williams is perfect example, as he brought us all to laughter, while he suffered deeply within, from this silent killer known as, ” Depression”. It can and will strike anybody and does not discriminate. Just like a member of the animal kingdom who prey on the weak for their next meal, so does a mentally deranged Individual prey on the weak, so they can feel more powerful, in their warped and twisted mind. The problem lies with our so called Leader’s who when they need more cash for their agendas, the first thing they cut is mental institutions, so now these Individuals have no where to turn, except maybe those who are around them and in a negative way, instead of a positive way. Yes in depression we don’t want others to know, nor do we not want to acknowledge, we have become victim of this depression, but when we take steps to fight it and instead we find the ugliness, this is what makes the actions so tragic, as we try to move forward better and stronger, along our paths of this journey through life.

” Go from three tours in a hostile place to, back home and try to be the same person you once was”

” The Appalachian trail is deep within mother natures beauty, the problem then lies with each of us turning to the ugliness and burying who we truly are”

The Fire in the sky………..

What a beautiful sunset to cap of a beautiful day within nature. The sky is burning in the flames of the sun, just as the fire burns within each of us, we all have that flame within us, to achieve all we want to achieve, as we get older that flame seems to die out a bit, but does it really die out? It only seems like it does, because we loose our focus, we lose the drive to keep the flames burning within, we then get so caught up in all the crap around us, we then forget to stoke our own fire, we look at all around us in a different way, the focus we once had becomes clouded as we do not see things as we once did. Life is not all as soft as a Rose pedal, or the path we walk is not always paved, we always have to work hard for what we want and there are no exceptions, even the filthy rich have to work hard at keeping their wealth, or their wealth will disappear as quick as it came.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we have to work every day to make the path as smooth as we can, the one thing we can not do is, count on another to help in the up keep of the path, unlike some might think like one of those Socialists types, you can’t take from one to help another along, especially the fact that those you may be taking from, are out there working hard to keep their paths clear, so why should some not have to work at clearing their path? Why should some take something that they really didn’t work for? There is this thing called pride and with pride, it makes you have a good feeling within, it helps you with self confidence to achieve all you want to achieve, without the pride and without the confidence, then the fire within you really does not burn as it should, as a matter of fact, that fire within becomes extinguished, making you cold inside with no true feelings moving forward.

Camping within Mother Nature is a lot more than just setting up a tent, setting up a piece of land just for peace and quiet, the days of camping is to unwind from the daily grind, explore and see things for which you normally would not see, not just see a sunset as beautiful as this, but also a sunrise just as much, there is a lot more to this journey through life, than the usual daily grind we all live, true we can get so caught up in the daily grind, that we then forget to stoke our fire within, which we then forget to get out and explore to see things we never see normally, sometimes we make a choice to stay within the world we are in, then that becomes our choice and we really can not blame another for that choice we have made, nor can we expect another to give up their choice, just because we do not like the choice we have made.

Sometimes life will bring us discomfort, it will bring us things that gives us much pain and hurt, through that pain and hurt is also when we become so clouded within, that the fire within us, will become extinguished like the rain fall over the campfire, when we are within the clouds it becomes very hard to see anything, even the path for which we are walking and instead of working at cleaning up the path, we just wander trying to hide our pain and hurt, so we can look as normal as we can. Sometimes the discomfort is part of what we are doing and sometimes, the discomfort comes from others who will bring it to us, simply because they try to seem more powerful to those around them? Either way it is up to us to clear the clouds of pain and hurt, so we than can feel good of ourselves, feel total confidence in ourselves, so we to can achieve all we want to achieve.

A trip within Mother Nature to explore and see things we normally would not see, is better than any therapy, it will help us unwind, it will help us clear the clouds from our judgments, so we than can see all the beauty around us, as we look out into the horizon and with a clear mind, we than can see that the horizon is looking back at us, we also notice that all our other senses are waking up to what is around us, we find that yes we do have these things of feelings within us, just that they were buried so deep within, that like the fire within, they were lost within the clouds that engulfed us. This journey through life is not about us waiting for another to give us everything, it’s not about just being consumed within the daily grind, there is so much more to this journey, we just have to have the confidence in ourselves to get out there and explore all that it has to offer and with this confidence, we will find that we have these feelings within us, that need to be stoked like the fire within, so as we walk our paths through this journey, we can do so in peace and happiness always.

” As the fire is within the sky, so to is there a fire within each of us as well to fuel ourselves to achieve all we want to achieve”

” As the sunset comes to put the sky to sleep for the night, so does the sunrise come to wake the sky up for the coming day”

” Socialism never works, just look at the current country of Venezuela”

” Discomfort will bring us pain and hurt, but to bring us comfort we all need to work hard and the pain and hurt will get better moving forward”

What’s more important, the drama or the real priorities?

The rural back roads and civilization of America, these people know how to walk their paths of this journey, simply because they are so far removed from the big cities, but yet they still survive just as strong. These places have considerably less than the big cities, but the the corporate giants still want them to pay the same or even more than the big cities? Our so called Leaders within the walls of Washington DC are so corrupt, that they clearly can not see through the clouds of their own judgments and their daily actions prove just that. With the next Presidential election right around the corner in 2020, with all these so called candidates lining up like the flies gather around around a piece of………….. Well you know the rest. All these so called candidates are really proving is, that they really do not take the office of President of these United States that seriously, they think it is a celebrity contest, which does nothing but rob the highest office on the land, of all it’s dignity and respect.

The Democrats want nothing but to strip our seated President of his duties, simply because he is not one of their guys? I have a news flash for all you Democrats out there, President Trump has already done more in his short time, than President Obama did in eight, plus the eight of George Bush also, so put that in your pipe and smoke it and let the real reality sink into that pea brain of yours. Now that the so called investigation is over, with nothing on our seated President, the Democrats can’t let it go, so now they are pushing to see our President’s tax returns? I have another news flash for all you Democrats, our President came into office a Billionaire, so let’s see all the tax returns of all elected officials, who came into their office with nothing and are now multi millionaires. These Democrats are so fixated on the fact of getting at our President, that simply they can not do their jobs correctly, they think they are coming up with the next best thing, like the so called ” new green deal”? That they are doing nothing on the real issues of this country, now I have yet another news flash, even through all the crap within the walls of Washington DC, our President is getting the job done and leaving all you haters in his wake. With these news flashes of mine, I have come up with more reality news flashes than all the media in the last year.

We all within this Society have become so consumed with all this hatred and ugliness, we have all lost our way on our paths of this journey, we are so clouded within our own heads, that all our judgments are made from fiction, instead of making a true judgment on facts, so we all can move forward more clearly, without guessing on the direction we should be going. It all starts at the top and trickles down to the rest of us, you would think that those within the walls of Washington DC would see all the progress our President is making and instead of hating on him, quite simply join him, so America can be better and stronger moving forward, without going backwards and not looking at where we are going.

All these so called candidates for the next Presidential election, are all so far left that they have become Socialists and all we have to do is look in the past and present to see what Socialism does, the old Russia or the USSR which stands for United Soviet Socialist Republic, will show you just how Socialism works, or just look at today in Venezuela with their struggles, not too mention the country of Cuba, Socialism never works and any candidate that says it does, wants to rob you of your hard earned money, so he can put it in his pocket, to live a plush exotic lifestyle, while you struggle with, rubbing together two nickels trying to make a dime.

The Media today are no more a Journalist than you and I, spinning around the spoken word, so you can continue an agenda, simply does not make you a Journalist, it only makes you a ” Drama Queen”. These people get paid good money to keep the drama flowing around us, without giving any mention to real facts within this Society, if our President comes out and speaks nothing but good things, the media will twist around his words and make them all nothing but bad, so they can keep their agenda of attacking a seated President and bringing more drama to you and I. You see how the media works? These are the real facts and facts are something the media knows nothing about. Real Writer’s use their imagination, while being a Writer in the media today has no imagination, all they do is spill words on a page, then look for their paycheck at the end of the week. I do not know about you, but if I do not feel good about my daily work, I then try to make it better the next day, so when I receive my pay, I have a great feeling of accomplishment that I earned it and not a feeling of robbing Peter to pay Paul.

” Just the facts please, so we all can be better informed to walk this journey as best we can”

” Drama does nothing but create more ugliness around us, time to get back to reality for the better of us all”

” A news flash should be of true fact, not about bringing more drama to all those around us”

” A presidential election should be of respect and dignity, not about attacking the one you are running against”

” The office of the President of the United States is the most powerful office on the land, it shouldn’t be treated as an office within the Barnum and Bailey’s Circus”

Good decision/bad decision



We all walk through this journey of life, the journey is all the same, but through the decisions we make on the paths we chose, we all may find that the journey is different for each of us, but as we get caught up within these decisions, it is our perception that is what makes the journey seem so different. We can all look at the same thing, but through our perception of that something, we will all see that thing very differently, that is a fact of life and one of those true facts we take so for granted.

We make decisions everyday of our lives, some decisions we make very easy, as others we procrastinate and take time to make, some decisions we make through the clouds of our judgments, as we don’t think through the reaction, before we take the action. Sometimes the decisions are clearly of common sense, but within this society where we lack the common sense, then we make the decision without thinking through the decision, which then has us back peddling, instead of moving forward along this journey.

We work our whole lives to build up a good self image of not just ourselves, but a good self image for those to perceive us by, then in a blink of an eye, or with one bad decision, that self image is destroyed, bringing us lower than we were, before we even did any building at all. this is the part of life we all dread, that part of life that we all slip on the thin ice around us and then fall through the cracks of the journey, leaving us submerged in the chilly wet water, then as we go into damage mode and try to warm up and dry ourselves off from the fall, as all those around us then perceive us in a very different light.

This journey through life has many decisions for each of us, decisions that can weaken us, or make us stronger as we move forward throughout this journey. Without common sense these decisions can and will bring us down, especially if we don’t think through the decision, before we take action on the decision. These decisions should never take control of us, nor should they ever be our destiny either. We should be the master of our own destiny and by doing that, we should always think through the decision, before we take the action of the decision. The best way to be able to take control of our destiny is, to never lose sight of our common sense, never bury that common sense so deep within, that we then forget that it is within us. This journey through life really doesn’t have to be that hard, but it is we who make it hard, when we make bad decisions, because we didn’t use our common sense, nor did we think through the decision, before we acted on the decision.

” Common sense isn’t too common within this society, only because each one of us is responsible for that”

” We have to live with whatever decisions we make, so why not think through the decision and make the most of every decision”

” To perceive what we see, is not truly of what we are looking at”

” The thin ice of this journey is only from the bad decisions we make for not thinking through the decision before we take action”

The real life Dumb and Dumber, without the movie screen……….

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, shown on January 25, 2019, spoke out against President Trump's emergency declaration.


These two Individuals quite simply have been within the walls of Washington DC for way too long, they are so out of touch with true reality, they wouldn’t know it if it slapped them in the face. They say the American people approve of what they are doing, I have a news flash for you! We true Americans do not pay attention to the Fake News Media, of which you pay attention to.

President Trump is a businessman, he gave up his rich and famous lifestyle, to serve the American people. With becoming a successful businessman, you have to be able to accept failure, of which President Trump has done just that in the private sector, but with that failure has also brought great success as well. Now as President Trump has come into the walls of Washington DC a very rich and successful businessman and also is working for $1 for the American people, all others within those same walls have come to sit in their offices with little or no money to start, but now are all very wealthy today? Hmmm!!! Makes you wonder just how corrupt those walls are? Politics is a dirty game and the money is just as dirty as well, with all the back room deals, the I will scratch your back if you scratch mine, if any Politician is reading this and takes offense to this, then you Sir are the problem and part of the swamp that needs to be drained.

The so called CNN’s and MSNBC’s of the world are what Fake news is all about, they are so far left and so biased against this seated President, they will make up any kind of story, in order to keep their agendas going, as well as keep all the far left Socialist Democrats, looking like their ( pardon the french) shit doesn’t stink. The hatred for our seated President, by these people on the far left is so great, they simply can not see any kind of true reality right in front of them. You want to know where the division in this country is and where it all starts, right there within the walls of Washington DC.

Until our so called leaders pull together and truly work together without prejudice, then the division will never end and true change will never come to we the people, of this great country of America. President Trump has made a lot of great strides for this country, but like a winning championship team in the NFL, everybody within all three phases of the game, have to not only be in sync, but they have to be all on the same page as well. The Senate, the House and the Executive branches of the Government, need to all be in sync and on the same page, so we all within this great country can reap all the benefits to be better and stronger moving forward, it is not so much as our so called leaders getting more Fat, dumb and rich, while the American people get stuck on the back burner and burnt, with no where to turn. In the 2020 elections we the people need to be much smarter with how we vote, as the direction of this great country is at stake and most definitely, it is time to eliminate the dead wood within Washington DC, so the rest of us can walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness, we all so deserve.

” Dumb and dumber may be a movie, but there is plenty of dumb and dumber types within the Government of this country”

” Let’s take a lesson from the football team the New England Patriots, to truly see teamwork at it’s best”

” You can not have failure without success, just as you can not have success without failure”

” When you have division within the leader’s, almost always you will have division within the rank and file as well”

The Border wall around a power struggle.

You can’t see through the many tree’s too far as you work your way around the tree;s in the forest, pretty much like trying to walk around Washington DC, with the thick clouds of judgment of our failed public officials, in the way of the walking. These Individuals especially the long term Democrats within the walls of our Government, have gone so far in denial, that they can not see any true reality anywhere. When it comes to a Border wall, the Democratic party think that a few rocks built up like in this picture, are sufficient enough to keep the riff raff out, making it safe for all of us, from them, these same Democrats want these ” Illegal” Immigrants coming in, as these people will vote for them, so they can keep their ” Power” within the walls of Washington DC. The sad part of this is, these same Democrats where totally behind a Border wall, before President Trump took office by ” We the People”, now after the fact……… They want nothing to do with a wall, I have one word for these so called leaders and it is………… ” Hypocrites”. Now we have a new Freshman class of Congress people in our Government and that scares me even more, especially two in particular. One is a bartender out of New York, who doesn’t even know what the three branches of Government are? The other at her victory party waived her country’s flag of Palestine and took the oath of office with her hand on the Koran. Now I have nothing against others from other countries and I am not prejudice either, but she also was in public saying ” impeach the MotherF*****, I say ” let’s impeach her instead. I am all in for term limits with elected officials, but only if my fellow Americans vote smarter and more responsibly. We need more Leaders that want to lead for all and not for their own agendas only. President Trump is doing a great job to this point and has done more in the two years than the last three Presidents of twenty four years combined, the only issue is, the Democrats wanted so much for Hillary Clinton to be elected that, they will not bend in any way on the side of our seated President, so the one and only solution to this is, we the people need to flood the phone lines whether cell or land line, of all our elected officials whether in your district or not, to truly let them now our true feelings, telling them to do their jobs, or get the Hell out, while we show them the door. Instead of all the rhetoric and all the drama, it’s time to man up, hold each other accountable, so we all can walk our paths of this journey, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve. We of this society are so lost within ourselves, we say one thing and do another, there is no responsibility or accountability anymore, the time is now for action as action is the only thing that speaks louder than words right now, talk is cheap and actions are priceless. It is one thing to turn fact into fiction, but when you spew lies from your mouth so much, eventually the lies you spew become truth within your own head and the real truth becomes a Ghost within your past and all you truly believe, are the lies you are spewing. The Democrats are weak and the Politically Correct World we live today proves just that. You can’t even say Boo without offending someone and God forbid if you say you believe in God to an Atheist? Our schools have changed so much that, we live here in the great country of America and you can’t even say the Pledge of Allegiance anymore? Right now with all the advances in technology, instead of us becoming smarter, in a lot of ways we have become dumber? Then there is this thing of Social Media we all have taken to, but we have turned this into a simple dog and pony show, where we further all the drama that the Media sells us and don’t even get me started on the Media? This journey through life is so easy when we walk through it correctly, but when we walk it with no respect of one another, or take responsibility, or hold accountable each other, this is where all the chaos, ugliness and corruption comes from. There is not one person that walks this journey perfectly, we all have our faults, but unless we truly understand this, we will never come together and see eye to eye, no matter what we do. It is not just here in America of all this ugliness, it is everywhere throughout this planet Earth. There is no Race, Religion or, Nationality at fault for all this crap, only we the people that walk a path, throughout this journey of life. We are all responsible for the corruption and chaos around us, simply because there is no more, discipline, love, accountability, respect or, responsibility between us anymore. Until we actually get back to who we truly are, this society will never change, you want ” real change”? It starts by each one of us, looking at ourselves in the mirror, then changing our ways, taking action toward this change, goes a lot further than simply, letting the crap spew from our mouths in the form of words. You want real change? Then it is time to totally take action toward that change, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness that God has in store for us throughout this journey. ” Even the Pope has a border wall around the Vatican keeping out the riff raff, a proper border wall is to protect, so we all can move forward safely” ” The clouds of judgment are so thick around the walls of Washington DC that the elected official are lost within denial with no sight of reality” ” If we don’t come together in unity, we will never see eye to eye on anything” ” The term Illegal Immigrant means you are doing something wrong of which you need to change what you are doing”

Small Town Americana…………

The Heart beat beat of true America, this is how America started, before all the big cities were built up. Everybody knew their neighbors and all those around them, unlike today where you walk down the street where you live and not know a soul who is nearest to you. America back in the day was a special place, where everybody helped each other without stepping on the others shine, Some may tend to think that, all Immigrants are welcome here even without the proper status? Now very true that America’s foundation was built by Immigrants, but Immigration done the correct way, which makes it very fair for all. You want to come to America and have a better life than where ever you are from, then go through the proper channels and work hard to not just improve your lifestyle, but the lifestyle of all Americans, who live in this great country of opportunity.

This is Wells River in the state of Vermont, far enough away from any big city, but yet it survives just as good as any city. The towns people pull together as one, to keep the town going strong, unlike those within any city, where they can’t even give one another the time of day. What is sad of today is, some can not survive within small town America, as they are too lazy to work hard in so the town can do as the town does best and that is to survive, within this dog eat dog world of today.

Now very true that the small town is a whole lot quieter, than any city of today, but don’t let the quietness fool you, the small town is just as busy, with all the hard daily work, by all within the small town. The beauty of the small town is a close second to the beauty of Mother Nature, with the both of them being greatly unique in their own way.

Small town America so rural, so out of the way from the true action of the cities, that the ones that don’t live within them, forget that they even exist? Once upon a time, within a time that we of this society have no idea of, a time of no automobiles and where horse back riding was a thing of the norm. a time where hard work was the thing, so we all could move forward better and stronger. A time we all looked out for one another against any kind of enemy, definitely a time that even through the hard work, we still not only found time to enjoy all that is around us, we found time to flourish with each other, as we moved forward in happiness, becoming stronger, as we walked our paths through this journey of life.

Just imagine within this picture a time with no automobiles within it, a time that had these hitching posts that you tied the reigns of your horse to, as you went inside the local general store to pick up supplies, or into the local watering hole as we once knew the bar as, plus while inside you chatted with the store owner, as this was considered your night out, unlike those of us today,  getting out to the closest disco, for dancing and drinks? Yes back in the day of old school Americana, they enjoyed their time, but they also worked very hard, so they could enjoy their time even more so.

 

” Small town Americana wasn’t just a place, it was where we all learned Respect and dignity moving forward”

” The roads may be paved now, but back then they were dirt and you learned how too stay clean as you traveled upon them”

” The heart beat of America beats strongly within the small towns within this great country”

” As the big cities grew bringing America into the future, the small towns stayed the same, keeping America with a great and strong foundation”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Society in Denial

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Definition of Denial: 1) Assertion that an allegation is false 2) Refusal to satisfy a request 3) refusal to admit the truth or reality of something.

 

Denial is a state of mind that will have you totally out of touch with true reality, it will not only cloud your judgments to the point that, you think what you are doing is right, when in reality you are all wrong, plus it will also force you into being someone of who you truly are not. Most of the time we become in denial of an addiction that has over come us so much, that we don’t want to admit to anybody or ourselves, that we have become so weak we have allowed the addiction to control of who we truly are. Denial will grab a hold of us to the point, we have lost all control and have lost all sight of who we truly are.

Right now within this broken society and here in the United States of America, we have one party in the Democrats that are so far in Denial, that they have lost all sight of true reality, especially now that our seated President in Donald Trump has won the election to be our President, put forth into office by the people of this country. This Democratic party simply refuses to admit that he is our President and are trying everything to unseat our seated President, regardless of the fact that he is not only doing a great job, but he is also doing what he promised when he was a candidate for the Presidential job. President Trump is a man of his word, he says what he means and means what he says, with the Democratic party having a very hard time accepting the fact that he is our President. Then there is this guy by the name of George Soros, who is a Billionaire that spends his money in a country, to simply bring down that country and their economy and that is a proven fact. We also have a Democratic party that is holding onto the fact that, they want to change America into a Socialist country, which Socialism never works and all you need to do is, look back in history at the old USSR and the present Venezuela.

Let’s not forget the left bias Media also, these publications have an agenda that they stick to and will twist around the spoken word, so they will fit into their agenda and if your not a Democrat like they, then anything you say regardless if you speak the truth, will ¬†get spun, not only for their agenda, but spun in a way to create much more drama, only because drama sells more than the truth and we the people get sucked into buying their publications, the best way to end this unwanted drama, is we the people stop buying their publications, so they have no choice to either go out of business, or change their ways. President Donald Trump has it right by calling these Media types ” Fake news”, with the leader in the fake news being CNN and MSNBC, they have their analysts basically talking of a speech our President gave, then they try to break down the words in the speech, by adding their own words or twisting the spoken words in a way of, keeping their drama full agendas going, but those that can see right through them, can totally see where the words fake news comes from. Right now we have a person in Brett Kavenaugh, that is up for a position of Supreme court Justice, his track record as a Judge has him more than qualified for the position, but because President Trump has named him and the fact that the Democrats are trying everything to unseat him, you have these people coming out with these allegations of wrong doing by Mr. Kavenaugh? The Democrats right now want to stop the process of naming the judge simply on the allegations, without listening to the one being accused?

With the ones that are accusing the Judge of wrong doing, first of all with an accusation like what they are saying, you don’t just come out like they did accusing someone without concrete evidence, plus the fact of being shamed from such an act, is just as strong as the word Denial. Shame will also take total control of you not being of truly who you are, shame will have you totally hiding within yourself, because you don’t want others to know of your trauma, you don’t want to admit like with Denial, that you had a weak moment that you allowed this trauma to happen. Shame and Denial are two powerful words that, not only will change you, but will have you truly not being of who you are. True with the right help and the right person like a Therapist to, not only to talk to, but confide in and trust, yes you can be better and stronger moving forward, but with such a trauma as what these allegations are, it will never happen overnight, it will take time and depending on how long it went on? It could even take the rest of your walking of the path, through this journey of life.

Being shamed from any trauma will have you Deny the fact of what happened, simply because you not only don’t want to admit to yourself, but you sure as shit don’t want to admit to those around you, because the fear of those around you ridiculing and making fun of you will overwhelm you, so you then hide deeply within yourself and put forth this fake self, so those around you will hopefully see you as normal, as what we think normal is?

Now a lot of these so called Politicians within the Democratic party, with the fact of them being in Denial over our President, will say anything against our President, will say anything to get those within this country to protest against our President, even if that means protesting something you have zero clue about? Now these Democrats won’t admit to it, but they are totally responsible for all the ugliness within this country and because they are in Denial, they think they are doing nothing wrong and can not see clearly through the clouds of their judgments. The time for true change is now and with the mid term elections a few days away, the time is now to end the ones like Schumer, Pelosi, Warren and all those like them, who are doing nothing but bringing more drama and ugliness to this country, time to vote smart and vote in ones that will not only have the American people at heart, but will work hard for the American people, so we can actually do as President Trump has been saying, ” Make America Great Again”.

 

” Denial and Shame will control every fiber of your being, if you totally let it and truly not be of who you are”

” The time is now to escape the clutches of denial, to get back in touch with true reality”

” To truly make America great again, we first have to work together as one and accept the truth, without letting denial enter within us”

 

 

 

 

A picture with no words…………

Slide 17 of 18: Source:  Newseum

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words? With this picture from the London Times, there are no words. This picture was in the London Times twenty four hours after that tragic day of 9/11/2001. Change will come to each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life and at different times to each of us, with such a tragic event, change comes to all of us at the same time and so wide spread.

The New York skyline has been changed forever to all of us throughout this world, not just we here in America have been affected by this event, so many worldwide have been affected as well. So many either have perished or are still feeling the effects from this tragic day. America will never feel the same as when we grew up before this tragic time.

For many of us within the last seventeen years, we will never forget where we were, nor what we were doing at the exact times of, not just when the Towers were struck, but when they crumbled to the ground in ruin. With each passing year from this tragic event and the change that has come, the pain will always be there, we just have to learn and change, of how we deal with it, so we than can move forward, better and stronger, to let peace and love overwhelm us, instead of what we see now, in all the ugliness and hatred.

Scars will mark us and remind us of times in our lives, that have brought much pain and tears, but these same scars do not have to stop us from moving forward better and stronger. Scars are the band aid that covers the open wounds, so the wound can heal us from the pain, without the scars then the pain and the bleeding will never stop, leaving us with no where to turn from the tragedies, the scars, the pain and the tears, are how we heal correctly and stay truly of who we are, which is full of the love of God, to share with each other as we walk through this journey of life.

The clouds of dust covering a portion of the city within the state of  New York, showing us just  how fragile everything around us is, where all that we build and in the blink of an eye, it all comes crashing down, leaving not just pain and tears among us, but a void within us all, that will always be there, no matter what we do to try to fill that void. Then as the dust lifts and everything becomes more clear, we then have no words, as the tears cover our faces, from seeing all the devastation and the rubble from such a tragedy. Through such a tragedy we witnessed so many helping others, that is truly of who we are, it’s all the other crap in this society just forces us to become someone for for we are not. America has changed forever and this is not the same America that I grew up within.

Change is all around us as we walk our paths of this journey and as we remember such a tragic event that 9/11 was, truly shows us that change can and will effect us in so many ways, there are various stages of change, with an event like 9/11, being as drastic as drastic can be, true there are some change being real suttle and barely noticeable, but no matter of the stage of change, we need to adapt and accept all change, so we than can move forward better and stronger.

The tears from the tragic event of 9/11 may have flooded our face, but the scars and the pain will never leave us even as we change, the scars and the pain will forever be within us, these scars then become a reminder of a terrible time, so we can change what we need to change, as we move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey through life in the peace and happiness, that God envisions for each of us, only if we loved one another more, then the hate that is around us now will disappear, so we all can be at peace, in all we do throughout this journey.

 

” America has changed forever and will never be the same as we once knew it when we grew up”

” Through the tears comes pain and you can’t get rid of the pain without the tears”

” A picture is worth a thousand words, but with some pictures, there are no words”

” When you don’t adapt and except change, then change can bring great pain and tears”

May you finally be at peace Senator John McCain, Thank you very much for your brave service in the United States Navy, as your journey through the Navy had it’s bright spots, as well as it’s dark and gloomy days. You Sir are a true Hero, as most would of cracked under all the pain and hurt you have gone through. You are exactly the type of person, for whom built this country, into the great country it has become and without men like you, only God knows of what might of become with the land of the United States of America. John McCain went from a Hero of the Vietnam war, to becoming  U. S. Senator, which he gave a huge part of himself, for the good of his fellow man, now some may not agree with his policies, or him as a person, but you simply can not deny, that he was most definitely, a true American Hero, for which we all can look up to, so we to can strive to walk our paths of this journey through life, as close to being the man that John McCain truly was.

Just as this Eagle looks down on us all, to protect and serve being the strong bird it is, now John McCain is looking down upon us all, to protect and serve us as best he can, while he appears before God, to receive his wings, which will help him get around to protect us all, for the same thing he did, while he was flying around for the Navy, doing what he loved to do.

John McCain came from a strong family with a strong family foundation, as his Dad and Granddad were both Admirals in the United States Navy, making him a third generation Navy man. After his days in the Navy ended, he then embarked on a path of Public service, which he had more than stepped up to the plate in many ways, throughout his career. John definitely lived a complete and genuine life, as a life that most only dream of. So no matter of what you think of John McCain the man, or the Politician, there is no denying that, he was a true American Hero of our time, who gave his all, for the good of us all, so we to can walk our paths of this journey through life, following the foot steps of such a great man.

This journey through life is not measured by how many years you have within it, This journey is totally measured by the life you live within the years you are so graciously given by God. When you walk your paths correctly, the journey will reward you with greatness and the one thing we so take for granted and that is, the respect we earn from all those around us, very much like the respect John McCain has earned throughout his journey. With this respect of all of us, truly has us feeling the love of God, that is deep within our souls, so we than can share this love with our true empathy, with each other as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When we walk through this journey correctly, the journey seems so simple, but when we bring all the other crap like, hatred, ugliness and corruption to this journey, is when the journey becomes very difficult for us all. So let’s take the John McCain approach as we walk our paths through this journey of life, so we all can live in peace and happiness, while we strive for greatness and the respect of all those around us.

 

” A true Hero does not look in the mirror and see a Hero, he becomes one with his actions for all those around him”

” Respect is a two way street and will never become a street of one way”

” God has so graciously given us this journey to walk our paths, it is how we repay him with our actions, that brings us much respect”
