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”

We are better than that.

Pauley Perrette, AKA……….. Abby sciuto for 15 seasons on the number one T. V. show NCIS. I just read an article of her, plus seen some of her tweets recently and she talks about workplace abuse and because of some big machine, a very rich powerful publicity machine, that has kept her silent. This machine has been spreading lies and false stories, now what I read in the article or tweets, mentions no one by name, but the words ” big powerful publicity machine” could be a tell that, it’s none of the cast, but even bigger like a network top exec? like maybe a Harvey Weinstein type? We the people are our own worst enemies, we cheat, lie kill, hurt, mame each other to name a few, this is not of who we truly are and we all need to get out of the walls of denial, before it is too late and we all are gone from existence, gone from walking a path, not just within a society, but within this journey of life.

Pauley Perrette for those who do not know, I have seen her on some talk shows in the past and let’s just say………. she was as real on the show as she is in real life, she is a total sweat heart and would go out of her way to help you. Pauley in real life was a big activist on Bullying, but as I read in the article and got from her tweets, sounds like she was the one being bullied forced to keep quiet from a big, rich, publicity machine. Very sad thinking that here she is counseling others and she is the one being bullied? This is so sad and knowing this is going on everywhere, makes you wonder when, we as a society will grow up, be truly of who we are, so as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we can do so in the peace of Jesus Christ, to be as truly happy as we want to be, while we feel deeply inside our hearts and souls, the love of Jesus Christ, then share that love with each other, instead of all this hatred and ugliness, that does nothing but bring each of us much pain and hurt.

We the people can be as smart as anything and everyone throughout this universe, but with our actions of each other makes us so dumb and childish, that I only hope that someday in my lifetime, we can grow up and walk our paths as Jesus did, so we can see the light on the path of righteousness, so instead of bringing harm, hurt and pain to each other, we can share our love of ourselves with each other always. Now with all the ugliness and the Bullying out there, I really do not think that any of us even love ourselves? This is where it starts, we first have to love ourselves, then the love within will flow to all those around us, as then and only then, will all the ugliness, pain, and hurt disappear from this society. It is not rocket science, we are not building a rocket to go to Mars, we are only loving ourselves then sharing with each other, just as Jesus showed us when he came and walked his journey here with us. We the people of this society need to grow up, we need to escape the walls of denial and truly be of who we really are. Then just maybe we all can walk together as Jesus did, on the paths of our choosing, throughout this journey of life.

” Abuse of any kind, the bulling also should never be tolerated, to be truly of who we are on our paths of this journey”

” When we bully another all we are doing is, burying our own pain and hurt even deeper within, as we never acknowledge only keep pushing it away”

” Jesus never showed us this, as the bullying and abuse is totally on we the people”

” It is easier to take the actions of love from within, instead of putting on a fake face and taking the action of hatred and ugliness”

” As Robin Williams was quiet of his troubles, so to is Pauley of her’s, time to stand up and find the voice of reason, so we all can move forward better and stronger”

The past will always be the past

In today’s society some are trying to take away the past, now I get the fact that we should always move forward and leave the past in the past, but sometimes you need the past to see where you are in the present, so moving forward you can be better and stronger, as you walk this journey through life.

There are times that you have to move forward without looking back, but there are also times you need to look back, take stock in where you were, so moving forward you can make the necessary changes to move forward, without any heavy weights holding you back.

The past will always be the past, but when you look back in time to where the very first vehicles were made, you can clearly see all the progress that industry has made, the innovations from year to year, not too mention the wide variety of different looking vehicles. Then you take a walk through an old time cemetery and see what lies within them, the care taking of them and let’s not forget what is buried deep within them, some of what lies within a cemetery, just may be someone who blazed the very path for which you follow today? You can never take away the path totally, but if you look back correctly, you can certainly learn from it, make the right changes today, so you can move forward better and stronger, on the path you have chosen, through this journey of life.

We all walk through this journey of life, but we all get wrapped up so much in the today that we then tend to forget that, yes we all have come from somewhere, we all have had a past, but sometimes that past wasn’t all that kind to us, maybe there was way too much pain and hurt that came to us in the past, that we want nothing but to forget it, we really don’t forget we just bury it so deep within, that we don’t want to acknowledge it. There comes a time we need to face our pasts, so we can understand better our past, then we can make the necessary changes, as we then take the proper steps to move forward better and stronger and learn that what we should of done was, to not bury our past to try to forget, but what we should of done was, to bury the regret of not taking care of the past then, taking care of the pain and the hurt then, so just maybe we could of taken a more prosperous path, that would of filled our journey with a lot more peace and happiness, instead of sadness, sorrow and less heartache through this journey to date.

The past will always be the past, just as the present will be the present and the future will be the future, you can’t mix the three together and you can’t totally move forward properly without taking care of each one separate, Each one will have their obstacles and hurdles to get over, this is a big part of this journey, this is how we learn, this is what makes us stronger, so we than can move forward better and achieve all that we can, while our futures have great promise. This journey is funny like that, we don’t want to remember anything that brought us pain, but we want to eat up what has brought us good things, but what we always forget is, you need both in order to move forward better and stronger, so as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we can do so with great happiness, peace and prosperity.

” The past will always be the past, but it is also the foundation for the future moving forward”

” Sometimes the pain and hurt will block us from moving forward properly, which is why we need the past to change and refocus moving forward”

” This journey through life has many ups and downs, with many obstacles to get over, this is what makes us better and stronger moving forward”

” Sometimes we need to look back, to see farther into the future”

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”

The case is closed!!!

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., leaves the Senate floor after making a speech on the Mueller report on May 7, 2019.

Finally someone within the walls of Washington DC standing up and taking a stand of all the crap within these walls. Simply because the Democrats didn’t get the answers they wanted, they have then moved to stalling, instead of moving forward. They want to bring in who ever they can and ask not just stupid questions, but questions that have zero merit with zero base to stand on. This is what happens when you are in denial and simply can not handle the truth, even when it is staring you in the face.

Hillary Clinton still can not except the fact she lost the election, by coming out and saying the election was stolen from her? This proves even further that the entire Democratic party has become the party within the walls of denial and unless they clean up their act, they will never see any reality, with we the people being the ones that totally feel the wrath of all the problems, within the walls of Washington DC.

Another issue we all have is the issue of the technology within the palm of our hands, look at this woman in the picture, her cell phone in her hand, we all in this society have become so dependent on this device, that we can not even put it down, we walk down the street without even looking where we are going, because we are to busy looking at this device, our entire world is within this device and if something happens to this device, we would all be lost with no clue of what to do next?

Denial is a strong force that will control every fiber within your being, even when the truth is staring you in the face, you can not see the truth because the denial has you in blinders and seeing only what it wants you to see. Denial does not care of who you are, as it strikes who ever it wants, when ever it wants, we have to be stronger and we have to resist all the temptations that denial brings to us. When Jesus came to us and walked his journey here with us, he showed us with his actions on how to resist any temptations, the problem now is, we the people think we are smarter, we think that nothing will ever happen to me? I have a news flash for you, Denial is sneaky and will sneak up and control you, without you even knowing it. The only way to get out of any kind of denial is acceptance, once you accept that you have been in denial, then you can start the process of taking back the control you have lost, it may seem like a long road back, but the road is well worth the trip, as you now can be honest with yourself and all those around you.

Right now the entire Democratic party is so far in denial, they clearly can not see any reality right in front of their faces. The denial has stopped them from doing their jobs properly and have them, seeing the glass as half full, when it is really half empty. It is not just the Democratic party within the walls of denial, it is also the far left liberal media as well and where this term of ” fake news” comes from. Fake news is nothing but the twisting of the spoken word, just to fit within and agenda and the agenda of the far left media is, to bring more drama to us all, whether it is the truth or not? We the people have to be smarter than these ones in denial, see right through them, so as to ignore what they are doing and hope just maybe they will accept the fact of their denial and start the process of, getting back to reality, so we all can walk our paths of this journey of life, in the peace and happiness, as Jesus showed us. The light of the path of righteousness is right there in front of us, but the denial has us in the darkness, not able too see any light any where, the time is now to accept what is, so the what is next can be better and help us become stronger moving forward.

” Denial is a strong being within us all, but we can be stronger and over come any denial”

” Technology is within the palm of our hands today, but when we use it incorrectly, technology will feed the power of denial”

” The best way to get out of denial is acceptance, we have to accept what is, to make the what’s next better for us all”

” The case is closed, time to move forward better and stronger for the good of all and not just a few that are hiding in the walls of denial”

The blessed journey through Holy Week

Hiking this trail to some may not be so appealing, but to others who truly believe, who truly have faith, will totally see all the beauty right in front of them. It is very easy in this society, a society that is full of ugliness and hatred, a society that has a network of media types just looking to keep this agenda going, for us all to get caught up within the same rhetoric, just to try to survive in this dog eat dog world, this will limit our true vision of not just ourselves, but also limit our vision of one another as well.

This journey through Holy week is for us all to reflect on our lives, reflect on the times that brought us great joy, peace and happiness, this is a time for us all to take stock within our souls and re capture that special bond we have with the one and only, Jesus Christ our Savior. When we have complete faith and belief in him, then trails like this will always look very inviting to us, we will never become afraid and hide within, in order to avoid any crap that may be around us, when the media types keep spilling their ugliness around us, we keep marching forward for we have Jesus to guide us to the path of righteousness. Jesus will also have us see all the beauty in everything we look at and we shall never see any ugliness, which then and only then will all this hatred disappear, from all our paths through this journey of life.

Okay I get the fact of there are many different religions out there and each one has their own beliefs and faiths, but for some of these religions to push their beliefs and faiths on others………….. This is what’s wrong with this society, as we have all lost the respect of one another, which is totally fueling the fires of Satan and the agendas of the media. We the people can stop this and we the people when we totally believe with faith in not just Jesus Christ, but also with ourselves, truly feel the warmth of the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls, so we than can once again truly feel the empathy and compassion within us, through love, empathy and compassion, there will be no ugliness and hatred, Jesus taught us this when he walked his journey here with us, just that we of this society are so far removed from this time, we simply do not want to believe. The ball is always in the court of the people, just that we the people need to pick the ball up and play, so then all this ugliness and hatred will finally disappear from our lives, as we than can be filled with love, joy and happiness, to move forward better and stronger, throughout the paths we walk, of this journey through life.

Some may never take to a trail on a mountain and within the woods, some may just because it is there, others may just to take pictures and videos then post on their social media, so they can show off, there are very few that actually take to a trail and see all the true beauty around them, these are the ones that need to pick up the ball and truly show all the other ones, on how to really play the game of life, on how to truly feel the warmth of the love of Jesus within themselves, to show others that when you have total faith and belief in Jesus as well as yourself, the sky is the limit and will help you see the beauty in everything around you, as the ugliness and hatred becomes smaller around you. There is really no special ingredient to the recipe of this journey, it is just about us all truly feeling the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls, this feeling keeps us warm and none of us will ever be left in the cold, no matter of who you are, Jesus loves us all unconditionally and equally, he will never stray from us, only we will stray from him. Let’s all truly feel the warmth of this love, so we than can walk our paths of this journey in peace and happiness always.

” The blessed journey through Holy week is for us all to truly feel the warmth of Jesus Christ within us to reflect on good with no evil”

” A trail is just a trail unless you truly look deeply into what you see and truly see all the beauty around you”

” The warmth of the love of Jesus is within us all, it is we who needs to feel this warmth to end all the ugliness and hatred”

May the weight of the world be not a burden anymore

With yet another season of Lent and this being the blessed Holy week, if you look deeply into this picture and have complete faith in Jesus Christ our Savior, then you can see the face of Jesus Christ wearing his crown, that he wore, while he sacrificed himself, for us all, showing of how deeply he loved us all.

We all walk a path through this journey of life and with this journey comes many ups and downs, many triumphs as well as pit falls, many life events that not only will change the course of our paths, but will also bring much change to ourselves as well. A lot of times these events come to us not of our own, but in ways from another, just looking to control all that is around them? When these life events come to us and we do not take care of them properly, we then become silent along our paths, as we try to move forward while burying deeply our true feelings and emotions, we then forget of truly who we are and project forward someone who is truly of who we are not, as we are now hiding from one another, but because we are hiding from our selves, to ease the pain and hurt from the event that has come to us. When we hide deep within ourselves, we then totally forget about that little child within us, we cramp that child to the point that, we do not let that child grow properly within us, as we then do not grow properly within the world around us, when that child is healthy, we then are healthy as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

To let that child grow properly, then not only it will be healthy and productive, we then become healthy and productive throughout this journey. True when things happen our true instinct is to protective ourselves I get that, but the growth of that inner child is just as important as well. When we become scarred from a young age and suppress everything deep inside, that child then has no room to grow and as we think it is not effecting us, it it effecting us deeper than we think at that time, nobody ever wants to admit to failure, as when we do then we think all will see us as weak? We are never weak, it is our perception that makes us think we are. Even if our troubles come from another, or another thing, these things still harm us so much, that we will do anything to hide the pain and hurt from them, so we then suppress a big part of who we are, so deep within, that we forget of truly who we are. When we do hurt and when we have buried deeply of who we truly are, we also forget that having a voice will help heal us from our troubles, by voice I mean not yelling and screaming so others will think we are some crazed lunatic? but actually speaking out in a civilized way, so we than can stay in touch with our true feelings and emotions, while keeping the feeling of empathy close to our hearts, which help us heal from our troubles to move forward better and not stepping backwards, which will keep us hurting deep within.

That little child within yes is always there, whether we chose to believe or not, just like Jesus is always there with his love for us, whether we chose to believe and have faith in him, the real problem then lies within us and how we deal with each event or situation that may come to us. the solution is to stay in the moment, stay in touch with your true feelings and emotions always, never lose sight of who you truly are, regardless of what others may say or do to you. When you project yourself as strong, others will see you as strong, keeping the control hungry ones at bay, so you than can move forward better and stronger, with each step through this journey of life.

We don’t have to be silent and we don’t have to be too voice tress, we just have to be true to ourselves, stay true to our inner child, stay true to our real feelings and emotions, so we all than can be healthy, we all can then be respectful of one another without bringing harm to each other and as we all do this, we all can move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths throughout this journey of life.

” Let the burden go as the weight becomes lighter, helping you move forward with ease”

” Holy week is a time to not just reflect of yourself, but reflect of Jesus Christ and truly feeling his love deep within your heart”

” We all perceive the same things differently which may divide us if we do not stay true to who we are”

” We all have an inner child within us, which helps us to grow in a healthy way when we don’t abuse or neglect that child”

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”

Small town America

a street with cars parked on the side of a building: The population of Hamilton, Mont., is 4,728, up more than 10 percent since 2010. Retail outlets fill Main Street, which is bracketed by mountain views.

A small vibrant town within the beautiful skyline of Montana, these type of towns are the forgotten towns here in America, as with most and from all the hype built up about the big cities like New York, these small towns are the back bone of America, as they have been thriving for many years and will continue to thrive in the future of America.

There is so much nostalgia within these small towns, they are a great place to visit, to truly see how they have become to thrive for so long. The beauty of the mountains all around you just add even more ambiance to the feel of the small town. Within this picture you see no big chains, as the smaller one person ownership stores cover the sidewalks of the street, this is what makes these type of towns so special, simply because the big corporations and the big chain stores and restaurants, haven’t had a chance to come in and ruin all the true beauty of this great town.

Just like in the movie First Blood starring Sly Stallone, when he walked down the main street of town with the mountains all around him, only difference here is, this is reality and truly as beautiful as it gets. We all can go visit places like this and walk the sidewalks of main street, experience the ambiance and the special bond of all the towns people. Definitely as you walk down these streets you will notice a huge difference, in the temperament of the people, compared to like………….. The streets of New York city.

Back in the days of when small towns like this was the norm, America was truly great and we all respected each other, we all watched out for one another, we all helped one another, now within this society we are so far removed from one another, that we don’t know who is around us anymore. You go to your job and it’s every man for himself as others think nothing of back stabbing you, so they can get ahead of you, drive down the street and everybody speeds past you just to get ahead then hit the breaks to slow down. Neighbors………… I remember when they all where close friends and all looked out for each other, now you don’t even talk to the ones next door, let alone know them.

Yes these small towns still exist, just that they are far and few between, as in today’s world it is all about the corporation, as these corporations have complete control of us all, unlike the days of yesteryear. Now unlike in a corporation, which is controlled by a board of directors, the businesses in this small town and other towns like it, are owned by an Individual, which makes them a lot easier to walk up to, the ones who make up a board of directors, all they want is for you to make them money, for as little money that they give you for a days work, this is where the miscommunication of this society starts, plus the fact that our so called leaders, within the walls of Washington DC, have their hands out for the kick backs and then vote any way that the corporations want them, which now we the little guy are the ones who totally lose out. Even a CEO of a corporation is controlled by the board of directors and if he doesn’t run the corporation the way they want, well then…………… He is replaced for someone that will.

I prefer small town America over the corporate world America that it has become, a simple place in a simple life, true you still had to work hard moving forward within the small towns, but at least you could still benefit from the hard work, as now within the corporations, the only ones who benefit are the board of director’s, the rest of us are left on the outside looking in. The sad reality of the society for which we live, but it is never too late to change this reality for the better of us all, yes it may be hard to fight against the corporations, as they have all the power right now, but the fight will be worth it, with a huge benefit to us all being, we all can get back to truly knowing one another again, become one once again, as we come together in unity, to once again help each other and bond with each other, without attacking each other, with every turn we take, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” The CEO is really not the Boss, it is the board of directors with all the power today”

” Small town America so beautiful and so much more relaxing, over the corporate world of today”

” Basically we all work for free, while the corporations make all the cash”

” Time for us all to work together without attacking one another anymore”

Escape within the beauty of Mother Nature

The quiet serenity and beauty all around you, that is exactly what escaping within Mother Nature is all about. Leaving the daily grind even if it is for a short time, it is time much needed with all the drama and ugliness within the daily grind. Camping season is right around the corner and having reservations for a camp site on Memorial weekend, I simply can not wait to unwind and totally relax within the beauty of Mother Nature.

The beach in this picture may be a bit rocky, but it is a beach that you can enjoy all to yourself, a beach to sit and watch the Eagles fly by and on occasion, swoop down into the water for it’s daily meal. Then there is the Loon swimming by as it sings back and forth with other Loons, what a beautiful sound to just sit and relax, as you listen to them in their habitat. Then if your lucky enough without being to noisy, a friendly Moose will come out of the woods to the lake shore, for a drink and a bath. Now let’s not forget all the different sounds you hear within woods behind you, some sounds you would normally never hear within the daily grind, Mother Nature is pure beauty and never ever forget!!! You are now within the homes of the animal kingdom, which you need to respect, just like you would want others to respect your home as they come to visit you.

As quiet as this picture is, it is really this quiet as you sit on this rocky beach in person, while you sit in your comfy chair on this beach and take in all the beauty around you, you will actually feel the stress of the daily grind leave your body, the clouds of your judgment, will become clear as you look out within the beauty, the transition from the daily grind, to the beauty of Mother Nature is the most beautiful thing and we all need more of it.

When you take to the outdoors and within the beauty of Mother Nature, you also have to explore and see things you never will see within the daily grind, when I lived in the great state of Colorado, I had a 4×4 pick up and would venture in the back country and as high as 13,000 feet on a mountain, the beauty I would come across would take your breathe away, plus from time to time, come across a few Ghost towns, dating back in time from the gold rush days, I would stop and get out of the truck to walk around these towns, as I then would gain a big respect for those of our past, seeing that a lot of the buildings were still standing strong today. I would also come across some animals I would never see otherwise as they lived within the high country, like the Doll sheep, and the Ram sheep, even mountain lion and antelope, plus some pretty big bull Elk, it is so beautiful to see these kind of animals in their elements. I came across this herd of Ram sheep one time, as some where actually ramming each other with the horns, I must say I was getting a headache watching this, as in the daily grind you would never get a chance to see this at all.

There is so much to the beauty of Mother Nature and unless you get out and explore this beauty, you will never see or witness this beauty, from the daily grind that we all get caught up within. We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all become too programmed within our daily grinds, to the point that some never get out to see the true beauty of Mother Nature, When you think about it……………. That is too sad because, we then become too tense and have no idea of what truly relaxing really is. When we are too tense that is when we bring all the ugliness we see today to each other, we then think that this is the norm? This is not truly of who we are, who we truly are…………….. Are people with love in our hearts that keeps us warm inside, when we become too tense, we then never truly feel the warmth of this love and then never share it with each other. The warmth of the love within your heart, is Jesus Christ our savior and his love for us, he loves us all deeply and equally, no matter of who you are, we within today’s daily grind, never give ourselves a chance to truly feel this love, as we become so engulfed, within the ugliness and hatred of today.

” Escape to the beauty of mother nature, to truly relax and get back in touch with the warmth of love within your heart from Jesus Christ”

” The rocky beach at first glance may look rough, but it’s true beauty will surround you with plenty of peace and serenity”

” The sounds of mother nature will totally relax you, as the stress of the daily grind will melt from your mind, body and soul”

” It may be a ghost town now, but at one point it was a bustling little town, full of joy, happiness and love”
