The longest day……… 6/6/1944

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

The water’s are calm now, but back over 70 years ago, we owe a huge debt to the men and woman, who fought the good fight, with many not making it past that day. These men and woman should never be forgotten, as if it weren’t for them, we of this Society may not be free to roam as we do today? This country just might of been a bit different today if it wasn’t for these brave hero’s of that time. These men and woman didn’t ask for this fight, but yet they showed up and fought the good fight, simply because it was the right thing to do, for all who walk a path through this journey of life, on the soil of the great country called, the United States of America.

The men and woman of our Armed Services sign up and become trained to help keep America great, they may not receive big money unlike those within the world of sports today, but these men and woman most definitely earned every penny they earn. The actions of our men and woman of the military goes without saying, as the actions of some of the men and woman within the world of sports………….. Well let’s just say, could be a bit more respectful for the ones who fought the good fight, so they can earn the big bucks, playing a game that they love. These men and woman of our Armed services just do not get enough respect for what they do, or have done, some go off away from their families for long stretches of time and some either don’t make it back, or come back back within a casket, or even worse……….. Missing parts of their bodies. While those within the world of sports cry over a hang nail, or whine over an official making a bad call, really!!! We of this Society are to blame for this, simply because we have lost our way along this journey and have mislabeled our priorities, from what we think is important, to what should be important.

We of this Society have changed so much compared to the Society back some 70+ years and a lot of ways, we have changed for the worse, taking big steps backwards, instead of moving forward, like those of our military’s past, present and future. The most political of all the wars……… Vietnam, these men and woman went and fought the good fight, even though they may not have agreed with the decisions of them being there, but yet still fought bravely, then they came back to American soil and are treated like low class citizens and some even being homeless, with no place to sleep or eat like those of us today within our homes, only shows just how screwed up we have become, while we live our lives today.

These men and woman of our military and how they get trained, are so disciplined, they think nothing of going to battle, so we can be free to roam and live our exotic lifestyles, we owe them a great deal of gratitude, but how do we pay them back? By some within the world of sports taking a knee, instead of standing tall and proud, showing great respect for them, as our countries National Anthem is being played before each sporting event. Those within the the world of sports just might not be playing for the big money that they get, if it wasn’t for these brave men and woman, these are the real Hero’s and not, the ones within the world of sports.

Respect is a two way street and there is no sign that reads ” one way” on any of the streets of Respect, those within our military don’t join to get our Respect, but with their actions they earn our Respect in many ways. While those within the world of sports think that they deserve our Respect, even without doing a dam thing, or worse, doing things that are just plain and simply stupid and uncalled for. Those within the world of sports think, that because they get paid big bucks, that they are better than the rest of us? They think that because of their big money, they can use their playing fields as a platform to Preach to the rest of us? I got a news flash for all you within the sports world, you are an employee of the game you play, just like the rest of us are an employee of the company for which we work our jobs. While you are an employee you have to abide by the rules and regulations of that company,  we all have to answer to somebody and there is no other way around it. Now you can have your opinion yes, we all have our opinions, but never forget that we all have the right to our opinions and no one can take that from us, no matter of who you are.

Those within the world of sports think that it is their right to go visit the President after they have won a championship in the sport they play? I have another news flash for you, going to visit the President is not your right, it is a privilege and an Honor, if you think other wise, then you need to rethink your way of thinking. Now you within the sports world may not like the President for whatever reason, just as many of us have our likes and dislikes, but to disrespect a sitting President, is just as bad as, disrespecting our men and woman of our armed services, as you take a knee, during the playing of this countries national Anthem, maybe we all within this country should boycott the sport you play, so you then lose that big paycheck, leaving you with no platform for which to speak? We all walk a path through this journey of life, when we walk it correctly without stepping upon another’s shine, this journey will reward us with great things, it will bring us each much respect even when we don’t go looking for it, but when we preach to other’s and demand their respect, now your looking at a journey that becomes very rough, that can bring much pain and hurt, for which will affect us all and keep us from enjoying true peace and happiness throughout the journey.

 

” America’s military are the real true Hero’s within this country and should have all our Respect for what they do for us”

” The water is calm compared to the day of 6/6/1944, but these men and woman of this day have earned our Respect now and forever”

” Sports and politics do not mix, now get back to playing the game that you get paid greatly to play”

” Those within our military may not get paid big money for what they do, but their actions get rewarded with our respect”

 

 

 

 

 

Peace for the World…….Peace within the World

With another Lenten journey upon us, time for my little friend……… Martin Richards, to once again make an appearance. ” No more hurting people………Peace”, this is a great quote by an eight year old boy, that was taken from our Society way too soon and in a way at the Boston Marathon bombing, that was totally an act of two Sick Demented Cowards.

Really!!! Do we need this amount of hatred that is around us today? We all tend to forget that, hatred is learned and takes great amounts of work to keep it going, while Love is deep within the hearts and souls of us all and really needs no work at all to spread among us all. School shootings, ISIS, the fact that we are way too negative of each other and now more recently, placing bombs in packages, like what is happening in Texas right now. COME ON PEOPLE!!! TIME TO WAKE UP!!! Before we ourselves destroy each other and this planet Earth, becomes nothing but desert land with nothing around.

We all hurt real pain in many ways and at different times within our lives, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Sometimes the hurt is brought on by we ourselves and sometimes by others, who bring us this pain, just to hide deeply their pain and hurt. The only way to truly fix ourselves of our pain and hurt is to, address it, keep asking ourselves why over and over, til we actually get a truthful answer, but even more so, we totally need to simply accept our faults, accept responsibility for our actions and truly, accept of who we are, so we than can get back in touch with our true inner feelings of, Empathy and Love.

Empathy and Love are within the hearts and souls of us all, with the pain and hurt that comes to us, we then have the tendency to bury very deeply these two feelings, like they are not even there? Then as we do this, we learn from others around us, of how to hate and be very negative of each other, We are so afraid of what others will think of us, that we then become someone for who we truly are not. God did not creates us to be hateful or attack one another, this is on each of us as people, who walk a path through this journey of life. Responsibility of our actions goes a long way as we walk our paths and when we are responsible, we than can earn each others respect, which will further us in, walking this journey in the peace and happiness, that God envisioned, when he created us all.

It is totally okay for us to cry when we hurt with real pain, just as it is totally okay for us to, reach out when we need a helping hand, this is what helps us fix what we need to fix, so we can move forward and not backwards throughout this journey.  There is a great quote from the movie Forest Gump, ” Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know of what you’ll get”, So is this journey through life like the box of chocolates, as there are many paths to travel through the journey, you never know of what is waiting around each corner, we just have to stay true to ourselves, truly feel the love and empathy within our hearts and souls, so we than can move forward better and stronger, as the peace and happiness surrounds us, with no sign of any hatred. Then we can be in true peace, as God envisioned and Jesus taught us, when he came to us and walked his path with us, though this journey of life.

 

” Peace on Earth will eliminate and unlearn all the hate we have learned”

” The love along this Lenten journey, is our true love deep within our hearts and souls”

” Hate is learned and love is within each of us, keep saying it to ourselves, so we can truly feel the love within us”

” Pain and hurt will come to each of us at sometime, we just have to learn how to address and fix it to be better and stronger”

 

 

 

 

 

Blinded by their own agendas, rather than looking deeply into reality………..

Chuck Schumer holding a sign

 

” When there is any kind of shutdown of a Government because two sides can’t work together, with millions of hard working Americans left hanging in the balance, then maybe it is time to change the occupants within the Government”

 

 

 

Government shut down here in America, leaving the hard working Americans hanging in the balance, leaving our Military without their much needed pay, so they can fight for us all and keep us safe here in America, closing the true beauty of our National parks, leaving us all no access to wander within them, but yet the basis of the shutdown is over ” Illegal” Immigration, leaving us hard working Americans out in the cold, maybe it is time come mid term elections, we the people of this great country, do as we did when we elected our now President Donald Trump. Those like Schumer, Pelosi, McCain, Warren and many like them, need to go, they have become way to comfortable and simply blinded by the true needs of the true Americans.

Let’s not forget the fact that, while these so called Leaders go home and walk away from their true responsibilities within the Government, they are still receiving their pay and their healthcare, all paid for by…………… You guessed it, we the hard working Americans of this great country. These so called Leaders have truly forgotten this and the time is now, for each one of us…………. The hard working American to remind them and demand them to not only go back to work, but go back and work together, so we all here in America, can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

These so called Leaders will point the finger of blame to the President, simply because they are so full of themselves, they truly can not see the real writing on the wall? Yes it is true this country was built on Immigration, but Immigration done the correct way and when you let the word ” Illegal” enter into the equation, then that should be a red flag warning you that you are doing something wrong, which then you fix correctly whatever it is you are doing wrong. I truly understand and feel the word of Empathy within me, I get there are some around the World being treated less than a Human and we in this country empathize with these people, but what about those Americans here, who are treated and live as low as low can be, we spend a lot of money on these Sanctuary  cities, but do we truly know who is really coming into this country? There are some coming here and using us, so they can wreak havoc and kill as many Americans as they can. Is it okay to empathize with those less fortunate around the World, you bet it is okay, but first we need to take care of our own, so we can truly make America great again.

President Trump since taking the highest office on the land, has been doing a great job rebuilding our infrastructure, bringing companies back here to America and creating good manufacturing jobs for us to be hired into, he has turned around Wall street and the stock market and a whole slew of other accomplishments, but when you have a troubled Media system, who are only focused on their agendas, which is only being totally negative, when it comes to our Leader President Donald Trump, that they to can not truly see the reality if it was staring them in the face. They would rather print fiction than reality, so they can try to bring our President down, They would rather see America fail, then to be truly great as America truly is. I have a news flash for the Media, how about trying to focus on the positive instead of the negative, stop all the unnecessary drama, because with the current President and his great Business skills, America can get back to what America truly is and what America is? The greatest country on the face of this planet, with the greatest minds and technology, so we all can live in peace, while we walk this journey through life.

 

” America is truly the greatest country on the planet, but first we need to take care of our own before any ” Illegal” that sneaks in here”

” Our so called leaders have turned this country into the laughing stock throughout the World, instead of the greatest country throughout the World”

” The media has an agenda, but they seem to forget that the American people have an agenda as well”

” America is of We the people not, We the Media who creates unnecessary drama through all the negativity”

” Time to spread the positivity through our true empathy, to eliminate all the negativity around us”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New England Patriots……….( do your job)

Slide 2 of 18: FOXBOROUGH, MA - JANUARY 13: Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots talks with Erik Walden #93 of the Tennessee Titans during the second quarter  in the AFC Divisional Playoff game at Gillette Stadium on January 13, 2018 in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

TB12 the brand……… Tom Brady is one of those kind of Athletes that doesn’t come around all that often, much like Micheal Jordan in Basketball, or Bobby Orr in hockey, These Individuals defy the odds, rewrite the record books and come with more raw talent, then even they themselves are surprised by their greatness, but yet ask them of their greatness and they will never admit to any of their success, only praising their teammates, for helping them with their success.

Tom Brady may be the Quarter back and player for the New England Patriots, but he would be nothing without a great leader or Maestro of the orchestra, a person that is so brilliant in not just looking at football as a game, but taking it too the next level, always being three moves ahead of his opponents and treating the game on the field just like a chess game, with each position of the chess board being strategically placed, to keep that competitive advantage, plus making sure each of the players buy into the, ” Do your job” mentality.

Now you can’t have a great quarterback or a great coach, without a great Owner, someone who is just as dedicated and competitive as the coach and quarterback tandem. The Owner is where it all starts and not just an owner that invests in a team to make good on his investment, but an owner that turns his investment into a gold mine for many years to come, with many generations reaping the benefits and joy of his investment.

With Robert Kraft…….. Yes it is true he is a very successful Business man, yes he has a lot of wealth and can afford many exotic things, but he is also a man who is still in touch with where he has come from, he also had season tickets to the Patriots, back in a time where winning games were far and few between, so he knows through experience, just how we true Patriot fans have suffered til now. Bob Kraft is one of the greatest owners of all sports and as a business man, he has surrounded himself with the smartest of football minds, which has turned the New England patriots into a very successful organization.

The best move the Kraft’s have made was, bringing in Bill Belichek. This man has become one of the game of football’s all time best coaches and by best, I mean more like a genius in understanding the game inside the game. His philosophy to the game may seem high tech to most, but to those who understand, it is actually very simple like just, ” Do your job”. Now the so called sports Media may not like him or his press conferences, simply because they can’t get that much info from him, or made too look just as stupid, with each stupid question they ask him, but if you ask me? The so called sports Media totally gets what they deserve, as they try to look smarter than the smartest coach within the history of the NFL.

Then there is Brady? call him what you want, but there is no denying him the title of, ” The Greatest of all Time……….the G. O. A. T”. This is a guy that was drafted so far down in the draft, no other team wanted to give him a chance and seriously! look at him now, not too mention of just how jealous some players may be of him, to the point where they have to say fake things or make things up to try to knock him off his game? I got news for you!!!  When there is ice in your veins, it is very hard to be rattled, or to be taken out of focus, not too mention when you are as competitive as Tom Brady, you not only try to be as perfect as you can be, but you also look for perfection in all those around you. We have seen Brady lose it on the sidelines and the so called media try’s to spin it as Tom is far from a team player, Huh!!! If only they knew that this is the fuel that feeds his competitive fire, when things in the game aren’t going as planned, yes he may get a bit vocal, but this is only his competitiveness that is trying to light a spark underneath his teammates, so they can wake up and play as they have been coached during the long hard practices.

Say what you want of the New England Patriots, but what I say is, ever since Bob Kraft bought this team, he has not only made good on his investment, he has turned a sports franchise around, where the winning environment around town has become so infectious,  that the other other pro teams in town, are doing what they can in their sports, to be like the New England Patriots. Not everybody can be like the Patriots, just like their is only one Bob Kraft and I am happy that I can enjoy the fruits of his labor, while the Patriots keep winning not only games, but Championships year after year.

” What I say to the other teams is, ” if you want to be a champion” then step up to the plate and beat a champion”

” The competitive fire is within us all, but unless you unleash it, you will never experience being great at what you do”

” The great owner/the great coach/the great quarterback, call it what you want, but without these as the main ingredients, you have nothing to build greatness around you”

” Instead of hating on a champion, then step up to the plate and beat the champion”

” Say what you want of the Patriots but what I say is,  We are experiencing history before our eyes, so sit back and enjoy the ride while it lasts”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Power of Prayer….. With the crown of Jesus Christ

” Walk through the shadow of light, as we pass through the darkness, the light is right around the corner”

*** Bowlingchef***

 

 

 

We all walk a path through this journey of life, there will be things that will cross our paths that will try to derail us, there will be health issues that we go through that will try to knock us down, but when we have complete faith in ourselves, as well as in Jesus Christ our Savior and with the power of Prayer to chat silently with Jesus, we can overcome anything, plus when we are in touch with our true empathy that is deep within us all, we than can help others with the same prayers, as we all move forward along this journey, to be better and stronger and walk our paths in the peace and happiness, we all so deserve.

Within this Society we are so far removed from the time of Jesus walking his path with us that for some, it becomes very difficult to truly believe………. I get that, but when you don’t truly believe in the higher power of us all, that is when you lose complete faith in not only yourself, but in Jesus Christ as well. Whenever you lose the faith, then there is never any hope for anything, we then become clouded within the clouds of our judgments and when we are in the clouds, that is when we let doubt enter into the picture and when doubt comes around, now your path throughout this journey, will become very bumpy and with the bumps, we will be derailed from the train tracks of life, which then will have us stop moving forward, become stagnant with no purpose and everything will pass us by, til we get back up, brush ourselves off, regain the faith in ourselves and Jesus, believe once again in the power of prayer, so the faith will come back and then the hope will be right behind. then we can get right back on the tracks, to continue moving forward through this journey of life.

We take tests in school as we grow up, in life as we walk our paths we get tested daily, but the difference is, in school we can prepare ourselves by doing the homework, in life there are no classes, there are no books and life keeps revolving, if we don’t adapt, have complete faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, then life will pass us by, as there will be no hope, leaving us to struggle with not finding our true purpose and without that, we then will become someone for who we truly are not. With faith and hope, this journey through life is really not that hard, it becomes hard when we lose the faith and hope, which then has us doubt ourselves, which then makes this journey seem harder than it really is, the problem is we the people making it harder than it really needs to be, With the power of prayer, may we all have true faith, so there will always be hope and then we can walk our paths of this journey, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” The power of prayer is strong and it works, all we have to do is have complete faith and there will always be hope”

” You can’t have hope if there is no faith, they go together like peanut butter and jelly”

” Life will test us everyday, there are no books as we have to adapt and change to keep moving forward”

” Jesus Christ is real and he does listen to our prayers, you just have to truly see the signs that he gives us throughout the paths we walk”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The slippery slopes of life

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The beautiful ski mountain in the summer months, full of green grass and green evergreen tree’s. Once winter comes and these slopes disappear and gives way to the white of the snow, now these slopes become slippery, as you swish your way down with the ski’s beneath your feet.

Within this Society and now that the #meto has gone viral throughout, there are a lot of people hurting deep within. Now with most of the ones coming out, all we hear are the ones that are rich and famous, what we don’t hear are the regular types that are still dealing with their pain and hurt, simply because the shame that they feel is so powerful, it makes it very difficult to talk openly from this kind of abuse. Plus the fact that we are within a Society that can’t truly feel the empathy that is deep within us all, that we don’t truly feel anything for who is around us.

Most of this #meto backlash we are experiencing right now is Media driven and the problem with that is, the media cares nothing for the Victim of the abuse, all they care about is making a story, keeping their agendas and putting money in their pockets, as they go forward with the  take down of the rich and famous. This problem of the Sex abuse we are seeing is, it has affected way more than we think we know, just that the Bias Media will only follow up on the ones that suit them and their agendas.

Now really what business does the Media have in getting into such a hot topic today? Really they should stay out of this topic, as the real Victim needs to heal from all the pain and hurt they have been hiding for way too long. The media has this problem of sticking their noses in places where they really should not, because to truly heal from the real pain and hurt, you don’t need Reporters and camera’ s in your face everyday. Just as when the shooting in Vegas took place, the media was their interviewing ones that just lost a loved one and they didn’t even give these people a chance to truly grieve, so they can heal from the pain of losing their loved one so tragically., all just so they can keep their agendas and keep putting money in their pockets. This all comes down to Human ethics and the media has no clue on what this truly is.

To truly heal from such abuse like sex abuse, just don’t happen overnight and through the media, it takes time to truly heal from this, as it comes from a sick Individual that has groomed and gained the trust of their Victims for so long, that the Victim then buries their true feelings deep within themselves, so they can try to keep moving forward like they as normal as normal can be. Then as the media makes a story out of it just to keep their agenda, now you have a Victim even further burying their true feelings, instead of getting the proper help they so deserve. Most of…..if not all of the Abuser’s were once Victims themselves, as they have buried their true feelings so deep, that they really don’t feel anything for anyone/anything  anymore, so they then repeat the process that has happened to them subconsciously. This whole Society is a Society full of pain and hurt, whether we have become a Victim of sex abuse, or a Victim of a Bully, or whatever you have been a Victim of, none the less we are a Society full of pain and hurt, in which we all need to heal without the media making a spectacle of us, just so they can make a profit from the story. We all walk a path through this journey of life, there will be things that cross our paths that will bring us pain and hurt, we need to be better at understanding of these things, better at fixing ourselves, so we can move forward to be better and stronger, instead of suppressing our true feelings, then losing a big piece of who we truly are, so we than can walk in the peace and happiness that we all so deserve.

 

” You can walk down a slippery slope without falling and getting hurt, you just have to better understand of where you are and put one foot in front of the other”

” This Society of pain and hurt is affecting us all, time we find the empathy within us and help each other to be relieved from the pain and hurt”

” Sex abuse has been happening for generations upon generations, time we repair the link in the chain of the cycle, so we all can be at true peace”

” The main stream media is at the root of all the pain and hurt we all feel today, time we take back the control that they have over all of us”

” Sex abuse is never talked about because the shame controls us so much, time to reach out so we can better understand and take back the control from the shame”

 

 

 

 

 

The Family foundation will never steer you wrong, it may become cracked, but the love will always keep it strong

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” Then the King will say to those on his right, come….. You are blessed by my father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the World”

*** Mt 25:34***

 

With every foundation it needs to be layered properly and with care, so it than can protect and be sturdy enough to last the test of time. A good sturdy foundation needs to handled with care, so it’s true strength can be felt later on down the road, of all our paths of this journey through life. A Family foundation is the most important foundation we will ever lay, this foundation will never be laid over night, it will take time to lay this foundation properly, but when we do it right, it will become the strongest of all the foundations, for which we will ever build.

Love is the one key ingredient in laying our family foundation, with love each brick in the foundation, will be strengthened by each other and when laid correctly, will not only make our family foundation strong, but will make the family bond be so strong, that nothing will ever break it.

Throughout the history of Mankind, there have been so much that tries to come between a families bond and it’s foundation, true there may be a wedge driven between the cracks of the foundation to divide us, but when we stay true to the love of the bond, stay true to ourselves always, keep total faith in the foundation, all the cracks formed from the wedge, will disappear making our foundation stronger than ever. There is nothing ever that will crumble our family foundation, when we stay true to who we are, stay true to the love of God within us, then as a family we will work together in repairing the cracks from the wedge.

There is no wedge big enough to crumble a families bond, let alone the family foundation. True these wedges will try to control us individually and take away our love of family, if we let them. The love never leaves us, only we bury the love so deep within, that we move forward like it was never there? We then become part of the wedge as it goes deeper into the foundation, there will be other factors to sway on the side of the wedge, which will bring much pain and hurt to us, but instead of truly understanding of the why’s, we then in order to try to get rid of the pain and hurt, bury it deep within and become someone we truly are not and in some cases, without realizing we have become someone else. With all the crap and the ugliness within this Society, it all starts with our Family foundation and bond, when there is a lack of these two, we then bring it to the rest of the Society and a lot of times without truly realizing of what we are doing. A Society is formed around each of us and what we bring to it, when the family foundation is cracked and the family bond is broken, this is how the Society around us becomes broken as well.

The true light of God is always within us, his love never leaves us, only we as people are the ones who make the choice of truly feeling God’s love deep within  our hearts and souls. When we grow within our families and when things get a bit bumpy in the building of the foundation and the bond, this is when we need to be at our strongest and not walk away, without truly laying the bricks of love on the foundation, when we walk away then we don’t give the bond a chance to form and be the strongest that it can be. When we begin our path through this journey of life, we are tiny and frail, we need guidance and have to be fed, without these then we are left alone, then we bring this to a Society of many. When we are alone it becomes very hard to have faith in anything, let alone ourselves, we lose the warm feeling within us that is the love of God. The family foundation and the family bond is so critical to each of us, as we walk our paths of this journey, that without it, we then become lost and just wander along our paths, with no set purpose in life, then we take this to a Society, which then becomes broken as we are. God’s love is always within us as we walk this journey, all we need to do is, have complete faith in ourselves and in him, so we can truly feel the warmth of his love deep within our hearts and souls, then all the foundations can be repaired by each of us, one brick at a time.

 

” A good foundation isn’t just laid on top of each other, you place the bricks together with the love of God one by one with each other”

” A family foundation and a family bond will never be broken, when built with true love and with all being true to themselves”

” The light of God is that warm feeling within your hearts and souls, that is God’s love within us all for each of us to share with each other”

” Love is the one key ingredient in the building of a strong foundation, so we all can walk in peace and be happy at every turn”
