I survived.

28 Sep

I survived The Bush Administration.  Barely.
This administration may be less than perfect, but at least they do not make me embarrassed to say they “represent me”.
At least they do not make me fearful for my life or my future.
At least they are taking steps forward.
I may have barely survived The Bush Administration,  but thanks to The Obama Administration I am hopeful I will someday thrive.

Repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

20 Sep

If you are not committed to perform with excellence as a united states soldier because you don’t believe in full equality, go home! ‎If you are not honorable enough to fight without prejudice, go home!

What if…?

20 Sep

What if you
Could wish me away
What if you
Spoke those words today

I wonder if you’d miss me
When I’m gone
It’s come to this, release me
I’ll leave before the dawn

But for tonight
I’ll stay here with you
Yes, for tonight
I’ll lay here with you

But when the sun
Hits your eyes
Through your window
There’ll be nothing you can do

What if you
Could hear this song
What if I
Felt like I belong

I might not be leaving
Oh so soon
Began the night believing
I loved you in the moonlight

So, for tonight
I’ll stay here with you
Yes, for tonight
I’ll lay here with you

But when the sun
Hits your eyes
Through your window
There’ll be nothing you can do

I could’ve treated you better
Better than this
Well, I’m gone, this song’s your letter
Can’t stay in one place

So, for tonight
I’ll stay here with you
Yes, for tonight
I’ll lay here with you

But when the sun
Hits your eyes
Through your window
There’ll be nothing you can do

i wish…

insomniac thoughts

12 Sep

Who?
What?
When?
Where?
Why?
How?

These six words…
These six words have turned in to about a million questions and a billion more thoughts.
These six words might change my world.
These six words might change yours.
These six words might change everything.
One thing is for sure…
These six words have become an obsession for me.

I could not have said it better myself.

Stephen from The Summer Set wrote an amazing post on his tumblr today about his feelings on 9.11.  I had to share it.
9.11.10.

On September 11, 2001, the United States of America was attacked. Nearly 3000 innocent people were killed, and as a result, the nation was in shambles.

The entire country was in a state of paranoia, any man wearing a turban was seen as a terrorist, mosques were seen as a breeding ground for the next generation of Al Qaeda, and an entire culture was seen as “the enemy.”

The saddest part about 9/11 was that not only did the terrorists succeed in taking human life, but they also succeeded in shaking us to our very core so we forgot what this nation stands for. Human rights were completely discarded, a country (Iraq) was attacked on no real basis and suddenly prejudice against Muslims and people of Middle Eastern descent was okay.

Nine years later things have gotten better, but events like burning the Quran and protesting a Mosque are reminders of how much 9/11 has changed the mindset of the American people. Islamic extremism fueled the attacks in 2001, but the post 9/11 rise of Christian extremism and American Fascism are no way to stand up to those who did us wrong.

We must exercise love, tolerance and understanding if we’re ever going to move forward. You can’t fight intolerance with more intolerance, we must love one another and show respect despite our differences.
