Imagination’s Magic

As I look out the back door just before the sun goes to sleep,

When all is quiet, I look out and I imagine a forest thickly deep,

It becomes much more than a few trees and bushes of blackberry,

In imagination’s magic, I enjoy a gentle evening breeze, light and airy.

Happy Flag Day

Thank you, Miss Betsy Ross, for making the flag, red, white and blue,
It is the most beautiful flag; this is so very true,
With its thirteen stripes and its thirteen stars,
In the 242 years since, as a country, we have many battle scars,
We have added 37 new states and stars to your flag as we grew,
I hope that you would have liked my tribute to honor you.Betsy Ross

GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

Haiku, Tyrant & Hope

We Should Learn from Ann Frank

Faith gives us the hope,

Even living among tyrants,

We have strength to cope.

Remember Hitler,

Such a cruel man, killing Jews,

Please be kind, be gentler.

A hero was Ann Frank,

‘Cause she risked her life to help,

Held in small room, dank.

Something to Think About……

Discrimination in any form, no matter the reason, should not be tolerated. As a person with Cerebral Palsy, the video below hurt me to the core. Far too often, I find that I have to remind myself that it is 2018.  Discrimination hurts! We have not come as far as I thought. I turned 4 years old in late 1968, so I don’t  recall the chaos of the 60’s. But I have read about it, and I have watched some clips about it on TV. It may well have seemed like Hell on earth to many minority groups who had few laws to protect them in those days. Fast forward to today. We have some of the necessary laws, but many people lack humanity and empathy. This couple just wanted something to eat. Additionally, employees need to learn how to treat customers! Treat others nicely, like you wish to be treated!
