Journalism is an art and a feeling from the heart, not building more drama.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

A true Journalist writes from the heart, a true journalist truly feels what they are writing, a Journalist will never write to fill a column within a publication just to put a check in their pockets. In today’s world of Journalism, there are very few left who write from the feelings within anymore. A News Reporter at one point used to go out and with boots on the ground, dig up the true facts of a story, now they sit in a cubicle with their computers on and bring other stories out, while they twist around the spoken word, just to try to get published within the publication for who they work. With these Publications, it is all about drama first and this is and always will be the agenda of these publications, the drama is what sells, unfortunately, as it is the drama that helps all the Executives and Editors with their big paychecks to live their carefree and exotic lifestyles, for as long as we the people keep buying into and buying their publications, then I am sorry but this drama will never end. Now I get the fact that we want the news and want to wake up in the morning with a coffee and newspaper at the breakfast table, but gone are the days of the Ward cleaver’s of the world, if you don’t know Ward Cleaver? He was the father on the show leave it to Beaver, where they did some cuts with him at the breakfast table before work and sipping coffee while reading the newspaper.

In today’s world, people don’t take the time anymore to sit and relax with a coffee and a newspaper, so these same publications have to do something to sell the print and keep the money in their pockets, so they moved to a drama-filled agenda, an agenda where they have taken a Journalist and turned them into a factory of words, instead of letting them create true words from the heart with feeling. Writers like Stephen King are true Journalists, they write with feeling and conviction, they write for themselves first, before any kind of drama is brought to you and me. You can tell the difference between a drama writer and a true Journalist, as much as these publication writers care to admit to? These agenda and drama writers are the reason why this society is broken, why this society is so full of chaos, hatred, and ugliness. The rash of mass shootings lately, number one is the fault of the mentally deranged Individual with the gun, then I will call out these drama full media types, as they pretty much glorify the shooter, so the next one will now try to outdo the last one, this has become a big vicious circle of which the chains of the circle need to be broken, to bring peace to all the rest of us.

You have these Individuals who call themselves Politicians? I call them and especially the Democratic party right now, an Individual that will do and say anything, so they can get an office within the walls of Washington DC and let the power and the corruption go to their heads. Now with these mass shootings, you have what is known as the 48-hour rule, which is when a tragedy happens, you never speak ill of the situation and let the proper officials do their jobs they are trained to do, but right now, especially those running for the office of president, which happens to be the democratic side, they can’t even wait 48 seconds before they are totally putting a political spin on the situation, making the job harder for our truly trained Professionals to do the job they were trained to do. All these candidates will pick a subject and even if they know nothing of that subject, will say anything like they are the best thing and the answer to that subject? They will lie as they are talking of the subject to the point that, if you keep saying the lie enough times, it then becomes reality in their own heads, which in a way is sad, only because it is we the people who suffer most, when these so-called Politicians or better known as a political hack, totally gets their way with we the people paying the price for their way. These Democratic candidates are all on Twitter as am I, let me just say, they all tweet out more than President Trump as much as they will point the finger to him, plus I will put out there the beginning to most of their tweets, ” When I am President”, I got a news flash for all of you, only one can become President and it lasts for four years, so I think all of you need to wake up out of denial and get back to true reality.

A Journalist is someone that writes true facts, writes from the heart and with true feelings as well. A Journalist does not write for an agenda full of drama, nor do they write for a paycheck, true getting paid for your craft is the goal, I mean look at Stephen King, he has become a millionaire for his true writing skill, although he has earned it and those within the fake news media has earned nothing but shown the door, simply because they are trying to impersonate a true writer. A true writer is like an artist who paints on a canvas, they express themselves with their true feelings, they put their heart and soul onto the canvas, the only difference between a writer and an artist is, one expresses themselves with a brush, the other does so with a pencil onto paper, but they both do so while showing true feelings and emotions for a craft they love so much.

 

” A journalist writes from the heart with real feelings, an agenda writer does nothing but creates more unwanted drama”

” A newspaper is a dying thing because one…………. online is the way to go today, two………. because a journalist is not what they used to be”

” The 48-hour rule shows dignity and respect, the 48-second rule shows how stupid and disrespectful we have come”

” To keep the lie going and to make the lie reality, you have to keep repeating the same lie over and over, so it then becomes reality in your own head”

The Victims never get any respect

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Now I do not want to say the name of the person who took the cowards approach, to escaping justice, but as high profile as this case is, it is the Victim who once again relives the real pain and hurt, without anybody especially the far-left liberal media, even giving them the respect they deserve. I get the fact that this guy was very rich and surrounded himself with other rich and powerful types, so even as he took the cowards approach to true justice and once again spitting in the eyes of the Victims he created, there is somebody close to him  that knows something and that somebody, should be gone after with the fullest extent of the law. All his money and properties should be frozen and no one gets anything until all the real truth comes out, I would even go as far as taking all the properties he has and turning them into medical retreats, with real Psychology doctor’s, so the Victims can get the help they need, to heal from all the pain and hurt this ScumBag put them through.

There are many slippery slopes along the paths we walk throughout this journey of life, but the slippery slopes that a Victim has to endure can and will seem like, a very tall task to conquer so they can move forward with as little pain and suffering as they can. Nobody ever gives the Victim any respect, nor do they even care for the Victim, or they would simply create a better environment for the  Victim, instead of bringing out more drama making them hurt worse. With this high profile case and the Scumbag taking the easy way out, true we will hear all the conspiracy theories come out, but the true fact that he is dead and the Victims are still here living with real pain and hurt, totally means that yes, we need to get justice for the Victims, so instead of creating more ugliness around this Scumbag, then go after the next in line as there is somebody that knows of his heinous acts, so you then make them pay as a co-conspirator. Then as you actually hold someone accountable, now the Victim can actually start the process of healing and escaping the jaws of the real pain and hurt, that this coward has caused.

I get the fact that in this drama full society, it is all about the hate, the ugliness, and more drama, with all the Victims being put on the back burner, as their pain and hurt becomes unbearable, then forces the Victim to bury deeply within all their pain and hurt, so they can be portrayed as normal as they can? Now as these Scumbags usually have big amounts of money, so they can use it to keep getting away with their heinous acts, plus surround themselves with others with a padded bank account, as they all stay within their own circle and as their circle grows, the one thing they never talk about is the Victims they create. True they create many victims and also true that, as their circle grows, so does the circle of victims grow and all the Scumbags have not a care in the world for the victim, as they are getting what they want when they want.

With all the left media plastering this Scumbags face and name all over their publications, what is being totally lost among all this is, all the Victims that this and other scum bags have created, in the media eyes it is always the agenda of drama and never about the true facts of life, simply because the true facts don’t help the media live their plush and exotic lifestyles, but and maybe a huge BUT? some of the rich top media Execs just might have been in bed with this scumbag and his heinous acts, not too mention a lot of other rich and famous types as well. These Scum bags are nothing more than a Predator and what a Predator does is, it grooms it’s prey so they can do anything they want with their prey, for their own personal gain, true they will try to surround themselves with others of the same, so they can try to be as normal as they can be, never once will they look at their prey as a victim and never once, will they look in the mirror and see what they are truly looking at. Through all the heinous acts, through all the real pain and hurt, the one that always gets lost in the shuffle is the victim or the prey of the predator. It is also true that some victims can and will be a creator of victims also, as they become someone for who they truly are not, while they try to move forward hiding their own pain and hurt, yes this can be one big vicious circle and why we prey on each other, instead of sharing our love with each other, the one thing we all lose sight of while in this vicious circle is, the fact that the power of denial is front  and center around us. Denial will have us become someone we truly are not, as well as do things we would never do normally, you want to break the chains of this circle forever, then let’s freeze the assets of this high profile scumbag and use them so all the victims can get the help they deserve, to finally rid themselves of all the true pain and hurt they have gone through for so long.

 

” We have all been a victim of something, as it was not a fun time is the reason why we never remember being a victim”

” A victim never gets any respect, they are always hiding deep within themselves to escape all the real pain and hurt”

” Maybe if we change the agenda of the far-left media, just maybe the victims can heal with the right help from all the heinous actions”

” Let’s call a spade a spade here, all predators are scumbags, just as all scumbags are predators”

 

 

 

With Faith there will always be Hope

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” Blessed are those servants whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival, Amen, I say to you, he will gird himself, have them recline at table, and proceed to wait on them”.

LK 12:37

 

We all serve the Lord God, father of Jesus Christ who came here and walked his path through this journey of life. Jesus taught us on just how to walk our paths, so we all can see the light of the path of righteousness, he taught us how to truly feel his love that is within our hearts and souls, so we then can spread that love with each other. Jesus taught us how to resist temptation, as he himself confronted Satan and resisted his temptation of the dark side, Jesus taught us so much, but yet within this broken society of today, we not only take for granted these teachings, we have merely lost the true faith in ourselves let alone the faith in Jesus himself.

Faith is something that today is lost within the clouds of our judgments and when there is no faith, the hope then is with the faith as they both serve each other. Faith and Hope gives us all the confidence to move forward better and stronger, it is not about all the material things we may gather along with this journey, we can not take the material things with us as this journey comes to a close for us, with the faith and hope we simply do not need anything material, as faith will give us all we need moving forward. Through faith, we can do anything we want to do as we walk our paths, then through the faith, it will give us the hope that all that we do will help us succeed at all we do.

Jesus put all his faith in his father as he walked his path through this journey, with only the clothes on his back showing his love for everything around him, we to can do the same if only we showed the faith in Jesus or let alone, showed the faith in ourselves moving forward on our paths of this journey. Without the faith of ourselves then through all the chaos, ugliness and hatred, we will never have any hope moving forward for anything that may cross our paths. Faith and Hope are the two major components that are missing in this society, as you can see from all the ugliness and hatred all around us.

Faith in ourselves will have us tieing our shoes for the first time, the hope is being able to make that good knot for it not to untie on us, when we have a strong faith in ourselves then we can do anything, even climbing the highest mountain, so we then can be closer to Jesus to truly listen with all our hearts, the message he says to us, just that with no faith, we do not hear anything he may say. Jesus is always there whether we have faith or not, he will never leave us, even when we think he is not there, he is there just we have lost the faith, so we then do not feel him with all our heart, which leads us to have no hope moving forward on our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Faith and Hope go hand in hand, like two peas in a pod”

” With the faith in Jesus Christ, the faith in ourselves is easy, which leads to having the hope to do all we may do”

” We all serve God our Father as we then follow his son Jesus Christ, to walk with faith for the hope of all we do along this journey of life”

” With the faith in ourselves helps us with the faith in each other, giving us the hope to move forward with no sight of ugliness or hatred”

 

 

 

Take the time to stop and listen

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

time………… No one takes the time for anything anymore, everything is rush and I want it now. Family dinners? Nope a thing of the past now, as people don’t take the time to sit and eat anymore, well okay they are sitting at the drive-thru in their cars at the local burger joint. Family dinners had a whole different meaning back in the day, it was time for the family to bond and come together, to help build that strong foundation moving forward, it’s the family bond that gives you the strength and confidence to enter into a society of many and be successful. You always had family to lean on when things got a bit rough, they guided you, they gave good advice and always gave their unconditional love without blinking an eye. The family never judged and always supported no matter the circumstance, without family our paths through this journey of life, would be a lot rougher to walk, with a lot more scrapes and bruises, giving us more pain and hurt.

The only time you see a family sitting together for their dinner is on the television show Blue Bloods, I love that show and I love the family dinners.  In this society of broken homes and broken families, it is sad that the family dinners are a thing of the past, simply because it is these dinners, that bring us together instead of dividing us. As much as these so-called Politicians point the fingers at each other and say that the other is dividing us, it is the fast-paced society, the no more family dinners, and the broken homes that are dividing us greatly today. The problems of this society belong totally on each one of us, we are the problem and we are the solution to fixing the divide in this society and all we need to do is, stop, take the time and listen to everything that is around us.

Our forefathers are turning in their graves at the way we are screwing up this society, they worked hard setting things up and writing of the Declaration of Independence, so we of today could have it easier, instead we would rather get rid of the things in the past, simply because we would rather have our five minutes of fame, instead of doing it correctly.  I would hate to grow up in the household of some of these Politicians, as the pressure would be unbearable, there would be no proper discussions, simply because they would always end in an argument, just watch the Democratic debates and they will show you nothing but arguments and the attacking of one another. Don’t know about you but our current President is more Presidential than any one of these knuckleheads.

Time is precious but yet no one takes the time anymore, we are all so much in a hurry, that we don’t even know why we are hurrying? We get into our vehicles and want to do a hundred instead of doing the speed limit, while we are speeding down the roads, we then proceed to chat or text on our devices, then wonder why we are off the road in an accident? Everything needs to be done now and nobody has the patience to take their time and do it correctly. While we are always in a rush, we all have forgotten to hold ourselves accountable for our actions, we take no responsibility for anything anymore and always point the finger of blame, even when we are the ones to blame. All these issues simply stem from the no more family dinners anymore, so not only to bond with those closest to us but build that strong foundation as we enter into a society of many, you think those in society that we do not truly know, really care for what we do? They could care less and would think nothing but to step all over you when you fall, as all this goes back to the no family dinners, for any of us to truly chat and have a good conversation, to not just chat, but too truly communicate properly with all those around you. We all walk a path through this journey of life and unless we do it correctly, the journey will be rough on us all, with no peace and happiness so we can simply stop, take the time and truly listen to all that is around us.

 

” When you take the time to listen and learn all that is around, you will notice things you normally would not notice”

” Family dinners are the key to all our happiness as we walk through this journey of life”

” Family is the strong bond that builds a strong foundation, so we can achieve all we can and be truly successful”

” Arguments don’t solve a thing, as a good discussion will help us all communicate better with each other”

 

 

A Society of zero Accountability equals a Society down a slippery slope……..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Accountability first and for most starts with each one of us holding ourselves accountable for our own actions, before we can even think of holding each other accountable. Right now within this society there is way too much finger pointing and not enough holding ourselves accountable for our own actions. Yes it is very true that because we are Human, we do make mistakes from time to time, but when we do not hold ourselves accountable for those mistakes, then the mistakes get bigger, instead of correcting them and keeping them at a minimum. When we do not own up to our mistakes and point the finger towards another, then the mistakes will compound, not only turning them into something bigger than they have to be, but then the pain from the mistakes will hurt us all deeply, which then keeps us from the solution of being held accountable for our actions and keeping the pain from truly hurting us very deeply.

This picture was once a very vibrant slate quarry, that produced a huge amount of slate, back within the 1800’s, now I get the fact that there is always change that will come into our lives, but when change comes to an industry so vibrant for some other that just may not fill the void, then why change that? Now this quarry is sitting dormant for all these years, with all the fresh growth of Mother Nature all around it, covering what was once open and full of life. Just maybe there are a lot of hidden truths hidden deep within all the fresh growths, just maybe that they to back then went through their non accountability days and now look at what has happened? It seems funny that we all think we have the solutions for everything, but yet look at all the ugliness, the hatred and the crap that is all around us everyday, with none of us truly taking any accountability for our own actions.

There are some who are making it their mission to strip us of all the past, but seriously you need to look back at what was, in order to move forward better and stronger, you learn from your mistakes to be better, well the same goes from one society to another and when you learn from the mistakes of an earlier society, than just maybe a lot of this ugliness and hatred will go away? We the people of this society are the biggest problem within this society and when we do not hold ourselves accountable for our own actions, it then snowballs to the rest of us within this society and becomes bigger than it has to be.

You than have some that will take it upon themselves to control everything around them and will do anything for that control. They do things to others they know is wrong, but will rationalize away the accountability of their actions, just so they can seem to themselves as the most powerful over all? Meanwhile the ones that they take control of, have now become a victim of their control and with that victimization comes, a very deep pain and hurt, which the person in control who takes no responsibility or accountability of their actions, keeps doing as they are only because they think they are doing nothing wrong, then the powers of denial take over and when denial comes into play, then any responsibility and accountability become lost deep within the souls of us all.

This society is so driven to have all the power of each other, that all the responsibility and the accountability are lost deep within our souls and when you look deeply into each others eyes, you will clearly see that the denial has taken over, leaving us all deep within trying to escape the power of the denial. When denial has it’s grasp on us so tightly, we then lose sight of all true reality, we will never admit to this fact only because we do not want to admit to our faults, this is exactly why we are in a this broken society of, no responsibility and no accountability. Yes there is a way out of this and it will take each one of us being on the same page, we need to get over our own arrogance and truly look deep within our hearts and souls, find that the love of Jesus Christ is always there, just that we have never acknowledged his love. When we acknowledge his love and our hearts and souls are full of it, we then feel this warmth within us, that we than share with each other. It is a lot easier to share this love, than to share all the hatred and the ugliness we have been sharing. With the love of Jesus Christ warming our hearts and souls, we will then find that true peace we have always been looking for. True peace is never within the world of no responsibility or accountability, the only thing that comes from that world is the pain and hurt that hurts us so deeply.

Life within this society could be a whole lot easier if only we all did it correctly, instead of trying to control everything and everybody we can. We are all equal in the eyes of Jesus Christ, the only thing different is that we are all unique to each other. I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of people in this society that keep playing the race card? This is one of the uniqueness we bring to each other, but some will try to step on the toes of another, just so they can come across as more powerful than another? We need to stop trying to attack one another and start seeing each other as Jesus see’s us and that is, we are more equal than we think, when we do this we will find that the love of Jesus Christ will flow like water, out of each one of us, as we all move forward and walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Responsibility and accountability goes hand and hand with each other, like peas in a pod”

” Accountability starts with ourselves then bleeds to each other within this society”

” To rationalize and deny, is what leads to no responsibility or accountability and all the ugliness and hatred around us”

” Power and control when achieved in the wrong way, will always come with much pain and hurt to us all”

 

A Broken Society

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Right now as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we are all part of this broken society. This tree has become broken as well, but by the looks of it may have been caused by a lighting, it is amazing though of how it fell and like, it stuck out it’s long arm, to break it’s fall, so as not too get hurt to badly. Now as the limb has snapped off this tree, true that will be the demise of the tree, it will be not repaired, to live on as healthy and strong, as it nonce did, but this society unlike the tree can be repaired and live on better and stronger, as it would take the biggest team victory, in the history of all team sports.

This society today is so divided and really for no good reason, as we are all so into ourselves, that we can not see clearly enough to see the divide. It pretty much starts with the fact of the two Political parties, one hand you have the Republicans and the other hand you have the Democrats, which whether you are an elected official or just an ordinary Joe of either party, we all think our views are the way to go and we will never come together to simply chat of these views to see really which view is best and which is just a crock of crap. not only are we all full of ourselves, in order to make out that our views are better, we will ram our views down each others throats, while saying the hell with your view it simply does not count. Then there is the denial factor, as through this denial, we not only have these warped sense of views, but we will not only “not listen” to anybody else, only because our lies have become truths to even ourselves.

All this divide thing has started many years ago, but most recently with the regrets and the not excepting of an Individual winning the election of the most highest office on the land, then the disrespect of the symbol of this country, by Individuals being paid big money to play a simple sport, to most recently a member of our country’s world cup soccer team showing disrespect of that symbol as well, then there are those out there protesting and as they protest, they have zero clue of what they are protesting, except the fact that others are out there with the same zero clue. Everybody wants their five min. of fame, but to go out and protest just to simply be out there with no clue of why, is no way to achieve that fame, as it will only make you look stupid to the rest of us, as we laugh to no end at you.

There are these three Freshman Congress woman, which I have no clue of how they got voted into office in the first place, maybe people of their district were paid to vote that way? But anyways these woman have done nothing but bring even more divide to the rest of the walls of Washington DC as well as the rest of us in this country. There are also some members of the house and senate that have been there way too long and they have gone over to the dark side, in other words they have gone to the far left side of the liberal agenda, to the point that they have lost all sight of true reality. These so called officials within Washington DC are so blinded by their own stupidity and lies, that they can not even listen to the voice of reason, let alone anybody’s else’s voice of who may be around them.

Have you ever walked the streets of a big city lately? Everybody has their heads buried so deep into their phones, it amazes me that they even have a clue of where they are going, let alone pay any attention of who else is around them, nobody gives each other the time of day anymore, as we have become a society of arrogance as well as a society of divide. With all this division we all want…..want…….want……., but seriously……. we all can not get what we want, unless we actually give to get the want. Forest Gump said it best, ” Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are getting”, this journey through life is very similar and when you just simply be who you are, even then you do not know what you are getting with each step of your path.

 

” When something gets broken you first decide if it can be fixed, then you work on the fix of that something”

” A divided society is a broken society, leading to everybody not being on the same page Nor will we bend over backwards for each other”

” Two political party’s are not in place just to argue and bicker with each other, they are there to keep ourselves honest not only with ourselves, but with each other”

The Peaceful beach really exists

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

We have all dreamt of waking up on that secluded sandy beach, but as we walk our paths through this journey of life and get so caught up within this society, especially a society full of ugliness, hate and tragedy’s, the secluded beach gets lost within the clouds of our judgements, which then disappears from our minds, leaving us with no where to turn, to escape the crap within the society.

Oh!!! that secluded beach is very inviting, but what really lurks deep within the forest behind such a beautiful beach? You tie off your vessel to secure it, as you find that magical space, to which set up your area of secludeness, as you sit there and look out into the water and clear your mind with relaxing thoughts, there is that one thought that keeps rearing it’s ugly head, as you keep turning and checking the forest behind and seeing if something is sneaking up from those woods behind you?

The woods of the forest so dense and thick with natural growth, makes it hard to get a good look at what might creep up from behind you? So you than get up, go to the vessel and grab the oar or whatever you have as a weapon, you go for a  little jaunt within the woods to explore and look at what is around you. The one thing you certainly find is that, the woods has it’s own kind of beauty, that compliments the beauty of the secluded beach perfectly, okay maybe you didn’t find anything terrorizing, or something vicious that would want to bring you harm this time, that don’t mean it is not there and reason why we should never let our guard down, but at the same time, never let it affect us to the point, that we never find the secluded beach and enjoy totally all of it’s true beauty.

Looking at this picture helps me remmember the television show Gilligan’s Island, makes me day dream of what it might be like being stranded on an uncharted Island with a very secluded beach, building a hut as a make shift house to hang my hat, be intrigued for what I may find, or even live as primitive as the Caveman, back in the history of Mankind. Creating and making your own inventions and tools, living within a world for which has only been within your head, to that point. Just think of it for a minuate…….. No chaos, no corruption, no ugliness or hatred, the only thing around is you and what ever lurks within the forest of that sandy beach, who knows there just might be Heaven on Earth and not just within our heads.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, it is we the people with our thoughts and actions, that bring this corruption, chaos and hate to this society, so the best way to end all this crap is, for each of us to escape the claws of denial and get back to living as Jesus taught us, get back to walking this journey with positive thoughts, as we stop all the negative chit chat and let our true actions do all the speaking we need, to move forward and not backwards, as we walk our paths throughout this journey of life.

 

 

” The peaceful sandy beach is so inviting, let’s never just see the peace and look truly into everything around it”

” The difference between a dream and reality is, a dream is fake news and reality we all live  together with our actions”

” To be secluded on a private sandy beach may seam like a dream, but that is really not what reality is”

” We escape reality to enter into our little dream worlds even for a short time, we can never do the opposite because it does not exist and not of who we truly are”

 

 

 

Living the Dream………….

” Living the Dream”? What exactly does this mean? I have been hearing this a lot lately, now I know this saying has been around probably for as long as Mankind? But seriously what exactly does it mean, especially when we all have different dreams from each other.

For me living the dream would be on my own little Island with all I need and away from all the chaos, ugliness and hatred, that is within this society of today. Maybe for someone else it might be, being free to do whatever they want to do and whenever they want to do it, just maybe someones dream would be like the American Dream? Which consists of, a house, a white picket fence, a family and a pet, now what most take for granted is, they both still are a dream and we all dream differently, with no two dreams being alike.

Do dreams really come true? Well……………… The jury is still out deliberating on this one, only because everything that comes to us, is there for a reason, everything that happens to us happens for a reason, it is just that we have to find that reason, so we than can move forward on our paths of this journey, better and stronger than ever before. It’s the reason part that we take for granted and most of us, never truly understand this part, so we usually skip this this and move on to the next part of the journey, which then has us all never finding any kind of reason for anything at all. As we walk through this journey. People and things come across our paths, they all have a reason for crossing our paths and will just never…. Just happen, for instance………… Someone wins big on a lottery scratch ticket, this doesn’t happen just because you picked the right ticket, it happened for a reason and it’s up to you to find that reason, so you than can truly understand the phrase of ” Living the Dream”.

True that living the dream is a form of reality for us all with different outcomes for each of us, so now the next time someone says to you ” hey how are you doing”, you can respond in a different way with the same words of living the dream, as now you actually mean what you say, with a true reasoning for whatever dream you are living.

Most dreams usually happen at night while we are sleeping and when we wake, we usually do not remember what we dreamt of while we slept, so as we say to each other the words of, ” living the dream”, how can we actually live a dream if we are awake within reality? With a dream we either do not remember, or it is something fictitious that never really happens. I think maybe we all get so caught up within our own little worlds, with these worlds becoming our own little safe havens, that we then look at them kind of like being on our own little islands, as we try to escape all the ugliness and hatred that is around us today? We can day dream of something, but mostly of what a day dream is, we are escaping the ugliness of what is around us at the present time, either way we look at what a dream is, it is still something fictitious, so we than can escape whether for a short time, the reality of our paths we walk, through this journey of life.

” Living the dream is something we say to each other as it is only a fictitious reality and not true reality”

” Some may be fortunate enough to actually remember their nightly dreams, as most do not, a dream is still just a dream and not true reality”

” A day dream is our way of escaping our realities even just for a short time”

” Everything that comes to us and happens to us there is a reason for it, it then lies on us to find that reason so we can understand better our realities as we walk our paths through this journey of life”

The Greatest Generation

Slide 61 of 100
This was a generation that without even thinking, would stand up and be counted, they stood up and weren’t afraid to face anything that crossed their paths they were walking, this generation has been through so much more, then any other generation that followed them. In today’s generation and within this political correct world, plus with all the technology we have become weak and lazy. Today’s generation couldn’t even hold the jock strap, of the generation from WW2. It’s just not the fact that, the greatest generation going and fighting for all the generations that would follow them, these guys were not selfish, unlike those of today with their selfies. This generation wouldn’t just sit on their A$$es while others went to battle, unlike today’s generation that can’t even get out of their own way, plus today’s generation or at least a high percentage of them, would never go into the Armed forces to fight the good fight, they would rather stay home and play their video games, instead of truly fighting for what they believe in. If it wasn’t for the greatest generation, we of today maybe would never have all the freedoms we have? Maybe we would of been invaded and then forced to be someone for who we truly are not? Or even just maybe we would of been dictated to, told when to use the bathroom, or even wouldn’t of been able to work and put food on our own tables. When you look at some of the cultures out there within this world, we are free to do as we want everyday and we owe that to those of the greatest generation. We buy our own houses today so we can live pretty comfortable and have a decent roof over our heads, but what about the thought of living under a lean to with only two small sides and a roof made out of brush, then when the winter months came, we all froze to the point that, only the strong and healthy survive. The fact is, life would of been a lot different if it wasn’t for these, brave men and woman, who gave a big part of themselves, so we of today can be free, to do all we do, with the freedom to roam as we may, without having to answer to anybody, except ourselves with the actions we are free to take. These men in this boat are getting ready to be unloaded to fight the good fight, but by the smiles on their faces may have us think it was easy of what they did? It was far from easy as they gave their all, for what they truly believed in, some come home not of the same person as they went there with, while they were missing parts, or not even came home at all. We of this society take so much for granted, as those of that generation sacrificed so much and got back so little. We don’t even think of these Individuals for what they did for us, we of this generation lack respect of each other and with that lack of respect, proves further that we do not respect those of yesteryear, which clearly shows why, we are so full of ourselves, that we can not see any good that may be around us. We all walk a path through this journey of life, there is a lot of this journey that we can not do alone, so we need each other as these brave young and woman did along their journey, not too mention their selfless acts for the good for all the generations to come. ” D-day the storming on the Juno beach in Normandy, done by such brave men, for the good of us all in the future generations to come” ” We take so much for granted in today’s world, then get lazy as we play the video games we think is our reality” ” Freedom is never Free, as somewhere and someone has given their all for the freedom we have today”

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

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”
