The Government Was Never Meant to Become The Family Guardian. Period.

Democracy has all but vanished due largely to the bizarre, foolish and reckless directives drafted, endorsed and supported  to meet the preferences and priorities of the ultra conservative biblical priorities of the Republican Leadership.


The President and the Republican party have abandoned their promise of being accountable to the American people to the Constitutional System, Limited Government, Separation of Powers, and the Preservation of the rights of the people which were intended to be preserved; uncompromised for future generations.

Women have the right to vote: Before 1920, few politicians paid any attention to the issues affecting women, but all of that changed when the 19th Amendment was passed. The 19th Amendment guaranteed that women could influence government decisions by voting.

  • That being said: Women are no longer the property of their husband. That being said Women are not the property of the United States Government.
  • Let’s discuss the Republican led endeavors to impose upon or interfere with the Constitution’s fundamental principle of an individual’s liberty and/or privacy. 
  • Something is seriously wrong when Republican held state legislatures are interpreting laws as written by Congress to suit individual privately held religious priorities. 
  • We are not personal chattel – Or State Property if you will; property to be bought, traded, bartered, regulated and sold. 
  • Something is seriously wrong when the language of legislation is deliberately written to intentionally menace,  subdue, discourage restrictive indeed to and punish her. This is a direct threat- this is judgmental. It is demeaning. Legislation like this deems women are chattel. 
  • Something is seriously wrong when women are particularly singled out by Republicans to become targets – subjected to hate campaigns, threats of violence_subjected to punitive-restrictive attempts to criminalize our private and  personal reproductive rights.
  • Religion, Patriarchy and Biology: Patriarch is a title. A male, a ruler- often authoritarian. Often a tyrant – who oversees, denies or grants rights – the choice of a mate, the circumstances of the mating and who shall occupy and govern a woman’s daily life and home, and how youngsters will be raised.

~Hearth and Home~

A House
A house is a structure of form; a space;
a relationship with space.
A structure of form;an architectural
design on a street: An address.

A conceptual layout of space with a roof: It has walls, floors, a stove, sinks
and drains. Closets; a flow plan.
It’s an ideal we seek.

A Family
‘A family is made of people who are bound together by birth, by law,

or by love.

‘A family consists of two
Or more people who live together or are
related by ancestry or marriage.
And we all come in different
sizes and shapes.’

~Hearth and Home~
A home is where we live our intimate
lives: It’s a bonding place between
two or more
It’s more than nooks and crannies
closets and drawers; it’s more than

a place to lie our head and
place our stuff
and clutter
A home is a sanctuary_ with a
fire in the hearth radiating
warmth and light
A home is a cheerful place
filled with family and
friends and games
and jokes and
It is a place of security; a place
of trust and respect:  It is a
place to hug and dance:
A place to love and
kiss and laugh_
to cry and
The home is a place of peace.
A quiet retreat: The hearth
the center point; that
welcoming place we
yearn for at the end
of a day or a

We The People are from one and we are many

This book is an excellent resource for
Building Unity In Our Community

We The People, are from one, and we are many. We come from chains oppression and segregation_ diverse in heritage_ color, culture, customs and spiritual traditions yet we deserve to be seen as living breathing entities_not treated as a means to an end to a political agenda and party platform.

Unity in the community is necessary: We must be about building unity in our communities. We must be mobilizing community assets if we are to
restrengthen America. Remember. We are more than color, gender, sex, sexual identity, race, religious creed, dogma, or a bureaucratic statistic. We are one_ we are all sacred -We are all worthy.

The goal of the next president must be raising the level of humanity. The next president must fully understand that current politicians from both parties come firmly attached to enormous hidden sources of wealth, and the older politician will not easily give way – will whine, and throw temper tantrums and do everything within their power to cling to the old political way of getting things done.

All temper-tantrums must be quickly addressed and firmly quashed!

Power is addictive: Since the beginning of time money has bought political votes. Money buys (undeserved) enormous personal power and privilege. Over time, politicians become attached wallet to wallet. Attached to power, privilege, prestige.

If one person in a community is threatened- everyone is threatened: Therefor I want the next president to understand the necessity of meeting the needs of every citizen.

The Heart of America: I want my president to remain committed to forging ahead with discovering new and more effective ways that will bring bear the fruit of positive change to/for America and all Americans. Thus restoring neighborhoods and communities is more than just necessary-it is a vital component to the healing of the heart and soul of America.

Healing the heart America: Strengthen families and revitalize neighborhoods. The first classroom is the home. The first teachers are the parents: Healthy families teach respect for others. When we teach respect we affirm the inherent dignity and worth of every human being. When parents act responsibly children learn that everyone is responsible for their actions.

The next president must be utterly fearless: The new president will carry the burden of knowledge-understanding that ‘we are many… and we are one.’ The next president must have a strong inner wisdom: Understands this nation needs healing.

Uplifting Humanity To The Next Level:
The first order of business for our new president will be
to address the need for a national healing ceremony

The next president be able to demonstrate a wide range of emotions: Must demonstrate love, enthusiasm, eagerness, happiness, positive expectation. Must be optimistic- must have an innate desire to spread hope.

The next President must be one of integrity: A person who can show a modicum of inner joy and self worth. One who has a sense of humor. One who can share the warmth of their heart. Someone who understands the value of personal privacy, as well as understand our individual need for personal autonomy.

Spirituality vs Religious zealous: I prefer the next President have a spiritual background_ a faith that is broad in concept – a faith that has room for many perspectives. An inner faith that connects their human experience with mine.

Voting: It is our duty and responsibility to vote: I prefer that our next President understand that everyone has the right to be seen heard and understood. That everyone has the right to have their voice heard.

Peace: The next president must actively work to make peace a reality: A person who knows and understands the meaning and life and will celebrate that desire with us.

Personal Faith: Our next president must have faith in self, and our nation. And will leave office at the end of term with dignity and honor – assured that America is stronger, healthier – a knowledge the nation is better as a result of their leadership.

Voting: To vote is our duty, and responsibility and Pete Buttigieg has already demonstrated many of the innate leadership abilities necessary to heal America from the trauma and drama created by the current president.
He has my vote.

It’s winter. You’re a homeless youth living on the street.

Reality: For a gay youth living on the street there will be anxiety, isolation, tears, challenges, confrontations, depression, diseases, hardship, loneliness, poverty, violence. Self harm.

The Importance of Diversity

We are one family


Everyone should feel like they are welcomed as part of the whole, yet not everyone is. Today my blog supports both the effort and the mission of the Give ‘EM Hope Campaign: Their mission is to give HOPE to those who need it most. Their worldwide network of volunteers inspires and uplifts all those who need assurance … Give EM Hope volunteers reminds everyone that their uniqueness is something to be celebrated.

We thrive on the delicacy of love: We are of one family – the family of humanity: We are of one heart – we are one heartbeat in the family of humanity and this means that we were not meant to live our lives in in isolation; in quiet desperation.

Our homes, our neighborhoods our workplaces and our communities should be havens of safety; yet they are not.

Everyone has the right to live and to live together in peace and harmony; therefore we should never accept any barbarous act or actions by a body of people that would outrage the conscience of mankind. Yet we do. We should never accept bias or bigotry, yet we do.

Everyone should enjoy all economic, social and cultural rights – these are indispensable for our dignity and the free development of our personality. Yet homophobic climates deny these basic rights to millions.

All people have the inalienable and inherent right to love and we cannot in good conscience disregard or withhold the basic needs to others and we should never hold anyone in contempt for ‘loving differently.’

Everyone has the right to know and be known – to see and be seen – to understand and be understood.

Everyone has the right to feel safe; to enjoy peace; to experience serenity and tranquility in their home, their neighborhood and community, yet this is not so.

Everyone is different – yet we are all he same: We should recognize the inherent dignity and promote these equal and inalienable rights to all members of the human family as this is the foundation for freedom, justice and peace in the world. Yet we don’t.

We need places of safety and security for our GLBT youth — There is no justification for abusing them, abandoning them, discarding them, ignoring them or calling them evil and sinners. All youth, GLBT or straight … need to feel a sense of hope. Everyone: Adult and youth … all need to feel welcome, that we are a part of the whole.

We should be welcoming the advent of a world in which everyone enjoys freedom of from fear: of harassment, persecution, prosecution, punishment and torment. Yet many people don’t want this for their citizens.

The Give ‘Em Hope Campaign promotes more than acceptance to GLBT – we promote life; we promote equality of rights, we promote more than friendship and respect.  

To give GLBT hope means we promote the spirit of brotherhood, we value the wide range of differences that exists among all people and volunteers are welcomed: We need your voices: we need your voices to continue our work of promoting inclusion … we need your voices to help us continue to provide a safe place for LGBT people to share their dreams and fears, their hopes and their grief.

The Give ‘Em Hope volunteers understand the need for inclusion – so many of our GLBT family members and friends have been abandoned, abused; disowned and discarded; our friends – our family members have begged and pleaded – they’ve bled and died.

We understand the needs as well as recognize the great responsibility … it is our responsibility to promote friendship and we are here to provide the tender warmth of familial love that has been denied to so many — familial love that so many of our visitors have never known.

Everyone should feel like they are welcomed as part of the whole, yet not everyone is. — We are of one family – the family of humanity: We are of one heart – we are one heartbeat in the family of humanity and this means that we were not meant to live our lives in in isolation; in quiet desperation.

I am proud to be a part of the Give ‘EM Hope volunteer family… If you believe in inclusiveness and equality please join the campaign … be a voice in the darkness, without a voice in the darkness hope dwindles and dies… be a voice in the darkness, speak words of inclusiveness – of hope of love.
