Not just Pro Birth

This is not really meant to be a political post, but instead more of a plea. A plea for the children of the world. For those who don't know I am childless, yet that doesn't mean that I don't care for the plight of children. I see many people who talk about keeping children alive, but then nothing else. What were left with is a bunch of children alive and suffering.
     Some suffer because they have no one to take care of them. Others because the people who are supposed to take care of them don't. That's why I applaud all those out there that take care of your children and have the heart and will to take care of the children of others.
     By now everyone is like "Yeah we know", same old story but your not talking about me. Are you sure I'm not talking about you? Yes you made a child and 'maybe' you take care of them, but what are you doing with them. Are you being a parent? Are you spending quality time with them?
     That's why this blog is not political. This plea is not pro or anti abortion, a plea for adoption, or guide to parenting. I'm not raising kids and can't claim to know about it, but I do know that anyone and anything wants love. Everybody wants attention, most especially children. If you can't make the time to spend with your child then why even have them? Children don't ask to come into this world, you bring them here. They need food, shelter, protection, but that is not the end of it. They need to be taught right and wrong, and how to survive in this world. When your not there to do this then something else will. Something like the TV, the school, or whoever does spend time with them. Whatever raises them, its not you!
     Whatever you got going on in life, if your putting that before the child then once again, why have them? People out there are fighting ex spouses just so they can spend time with a child, and some are fighting international legal battles just to be in their child's life.
     So I know as always your going to say, you don't have kids so you don't know nothing. Well guess what if you aren't spending time with yours then you don't have any kids either you just have dependents, and you don't know nothing either. Cause if you did then you would know how much your missing out on, and how many childless people wish they had the opportunity that you are wasting.

Wisdom From My Grandfather

My grandfather died when I was six years old, so I didn't get to know him for very long. He has lived on with the life lessons he taught my mother. She recently shared one of them with me. She told me something he shared with her when she was growing up. He told her that her and her sisters were all pretty girls and smart as well. Men/boys would be after them, but they shouldn't just put up with or accept one that didn't treat them right.
     So with that said I want to briefly talk about something that I think is important, especially for women, and that is self-esteem. I have been close to many women throughout my life, whether as friends, family, or relationships, and something I have come to recognize is that I have known way too many that have low self-esteem.
     First off let me share something I heard a comedian say, self-esteem is how you feel about yourself, other people really can't change that unless you let them. To all the women out there, please know t…

Bad Time To Be A Man

So I have been hearing that this is a bad time to be a man. Accusations against men are ruining our lives and reputations. At no time in american history has it been so hard to be a man. I hear things like this and it makes me wonder what people know of history. So I wanted to share a brief summary of a few moments in our history, to hopefully give people a little perspective.

                                                        January 1923 Rosewood, FL
     People from the neighboring town of Sumner as well as others who came from the region, came to Rosewood to help local law enforcement. They were drawn to the area to help with the hunt for a man that was accused of assualting a woman in Sumner. The local police tried to maintain order, but in the end surrendered to mob justice. Events spiraled out of control and the town was razed.

                                                        May 1921 Tulsa, OK
     A local shoeshiner was accused of assaulting an elevator operator.…


So I was thinking about something I watched on TV more than a decade ago. I was watching this telethon raising money for victims of hurricane Katrina. Mike Myers was encouraging people to donate, and beside him was Kanye West supposedly doing the same. I say supposedly for Kanye because instead of sticking to the plan he decided to suddenly say "Bush doesn't like black people" stunning everyone including me and Mike Myers. Mr. Myers tried to keep it together, but that first look he gave Kanye was priceless. Kanye proceeded to go off on a tangent talking about his accountant or something, and finally they cut to someone else not on stage. That person wasn't prepared nor was the telethon prepared. We the audience were not prepared at the time.       Sometime later Mr. West is in the spotlight for interrupting Taylor Swift at an awards show to say Beyonce should have won. He showed a lack of class and respect for someone having their moment, and again many weren't …
